Russian Roulette


Take a breath, take it deep 
Calm yourself, he says to me 
If you play, you play for keeps 
Take a gun, and count to three 
I’m sweating now, moving slow 
No time to think, my turn to go  

And you can see my heart beating 
You can see it through my chest 
And I’m terrified but I’m not leaving 
Know that I must must pass this test 
So just pull the trigger  

Say a prayer to yourself 
He says close your eyes 
Sometimes it helps 
And then I get a scary thought 
That he’s here means he’s never lost  

And you can see my heart beating 
You can see it through my chest 
And I’m terrified but I’m not leaving 
Know that I must must pass this test 
So just pull the trigger  

As my life flashes before my eyes 
I’m wondering will I ever see another sunrise? 
So many won’t get the chance to say goodbye 
But it’s too late too pick up the value of my life  

And you can see my heart beating 
You can see it through my chest 
And I’m terrified but I’m not leaving 
Know that I must must pass this test 
So just pull the trigger
