Looking Down the Barrel of Today Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Once had a shotgun to my head they said I wasn't worth the bullets
Now the world is my trigger and I'm here to fucking pull it
Once had a shotgun to my head they said I wasn't worth the bullets
Now the world is my trigger and I'm here to fucking pull it
Verse 2
Still here
I can't hesitate, eyes wide open, pupils dilate
Still here
Set to detonate
I see the swarm
The scavengers await
Verse 3
No sleep, no rest
If that's what it takes to be the best
No sleep, no rest
Must stay driven, I can't relent
Verse 4
Once had a knife to my throat they said I'd wind up in the dirt
I know the ones that doubt me are the ones that really hurt
Verse 5
Still here, I can't hesitate, eyes wide open, pupils dilate
Still here (right here)
Set to detonate
I see the swarm
The scavengers await
Verse 6
No sleep, no rest
If that's what it takes to be the best
No sleep, no rest
Must stay driven, I can't relent
Verse 7
Came from the gutter
Just missed the grave
Now looking down the barrel of today
Verse 8
Start from nothing
Stop [?]
Never put myself in that position again
Now I'm looking down the barrel of today
Verse 9
Once had a shotgun to my head they said I wasn't worth the bullets
Now the world is my trigger, I'll fucking pull it
Once had a shotgun to my head they said I wasn't worth the bullets
Now the world is my trigger and I'm gonna fucking pull it
Verse 10
No sleep, no rest
Must do what it takes to be the best
No sleep, no rest
Do anything that it takes to be the best
