Hired Guns

from by Visc.



I've always had trouble picking themes for songs and albums. I usually feel like I'm coating the listener in a thick layer of cheese if I do anything remotely serious, so I generally shy away from topics like love and shit like that.

The downside to this is that I often have a hard time actually finding topics to write about. This aggravating situation makes me lose hair and messes with my digestion until I finally find something that I'm happy with. That's what happened with Hired Guns.

Like 'Original Rebels', I wanted to take an evil character (or misunderstood character, as I like to think), and really get to know them. You could almost say I'm giving them a one on one interview. So I chose a Hired Gun--the scummiest of the scummy. Hired Guns kill people, obviously, for money. But that's only a small part of their lives. No one ever talks about the problems that a Hired gun could face. What if they are afraid of blood, or have a hard time recognizing faces? Well, that's what I am going to be writing about on my next album, 'Hired Guns'.

Here's the title track. It doesn't directly talk about any issues--think of it more as a theme song.


red paints my sight
smells sweet
smoke of tobacco
bounties lay at my feet
foreign danger dead
in the street
blasting of rifles
to a 70's beat

today's pile
is only three high
he almost made it
but a move caught my eye
sionara, goodbye
I say the cool shit
every time

endless cries
endless moans
trigger happy
always go in alone
heroes die
and bad guys roam
well if I go down
I'll make sure that I'm known

you can run and can hide
but it won't keep you alive
we're all pros
you can stock up inside
but you will not survive
you should know

we don't try to hide it
we're soaked in violence
our dreams are filled with horrid screams
and it's sweet
to dream the obscene
you know what I mean
(I eat all the spleens)


you can run and can hide
but it won't keep you alive
we're all pros
you can stock up inside
but you will not survive
you should know

I've lost this one
I've lost this one
I found this one
he was under a desk

I've come to destroy
I chew on grenades
all death I enjoy
you cannot persuade
