Guns for Hands Lyrics

I know what you think in the morning
When the sun shines on the ground
And shows what you have done
It shows where your mind has gone
And you swearing to your parents
That it will never happen again
I know, I know oh ow, what that means, I know oh oh oh ow

That you all have guns
And you never put the safety on
And you all have plans,
To take it, to take it, don't take it, take it, take it

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't when you all have
Guns for hands yeah

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't when you all have
Guns for hands yeah

Let's take this a second at a time
Let's take this one song, this one rhyme
Together, let's breathe
Together, to the beat
But there's hope out the window
So that's where we'll go
Let's go outside and all join hands
But until then you'll never understand

That you all have guns
And you never put the safety on
And you all have plans
To take it, to take it, don't take it, take it, take it

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't when you all have
Guns for hands yeah

We've turned our hands to guns, trade in our thumbs for ammunition
I must forewarn you, of my disorder, or my condition
'Cause when the sun sets, it upsets what's left of my invested interest
Interested in putting my fingers to my head
The solution is, I see a whole room of these mutant kids
Fused at the wrist, I simply tell them they should shoot at this
Simply suggest my chest and this confused music, it's
Obviously best for them to turn their guns to a fist

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't when you all have
Guns for hands

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't when you all have
Guns for hands

Thoughts & Meanings

Baisically Tyler is saying he knows a lot of his fans harm themselves and try to take their lives (with guns {forhands}[hence song title]) and him and josh are mad and angry and losing sleep (I'm trying to sleep) over this fact, and is trying to get them to stop harming themselves and committing suicide.

the song is basically tøp saying that they realize their fans hurt themselves and they're mad about it. the song is them trying to tell the fans not to take their anger out on themselves and end up killing or harming themselves. (ex. "you all have plans to take it... dont take it...) it being their lives. at the beginning of the second verse it says "lets take this one second at a time, lets take this one song, this one rhyme, together. lets breathe. together to the beat." which is tyler trying to talk the listener off a ledge, trying to stop them from breaking down. alSo when it says "The solution is, I see a whole room of these mutant kids, Fused at the wrist, I simply tell them they should shoot at this, Simply suggest my chest and this confused music" its saying that the fans should take their emotions out on the band/the music instead of them selves. ok one last thing here. "im trying to sleep, but i cant, but i cant when you all have guns for hands" is tøp being distressed at the fact that their fans are doing these things to themselves, so much that its gotten to the point where they're losing sleep over it, because they're so worried about them. hope this helped lmAO

Oo sad they did rong

We never put the safety on ... We can all just put out there whatever we think being mostly anonymous

I think it Is a song about social media and how not everyone's should have a voice heard round the world .... Thumbs for ammunition.... We all have guns for hands ... Texting Twitter Facebook....Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me ....does not apply anymore
