Lyrics

    All roads they lead to shame
    All drowning in the blame
    All reflections look the same
    In the shine of the midnight revolver
    
    All hide beneath a skin
    A hope so paper thin
    I'm at the door again
    And the shine of the midnight revolver
    
         Even the promise of danger has gone dull
         Staring down the barrel of a .45
        
         Suck on the barrel
         Suck on the barrel
         Suck it 'til it's gone dry
    
         For all reflections look the same
         In the shine of the midnight revolver
    
    Redemption purify
    Will nothing satisfy
    The scars just multiply
    In the shine of the midnight revolver
    
    Twisting in apocalypse
    Death upon the fingertips
    Frigid metal touches lips
    And the shine of the midnight revolver
    
         'Cause you lied
         Just a bullet away
         Just a bullet away from leavin' you
         Just a bullet away
         Stop the voices in my head
    
    Caressing death again
    Becomes the heroin
    Forbidden medicine
    Puts a shine on the midnight revolver
    
    Eternal borderline
    All the faces intertwine
    Oh God... now I see mine
    In the shine of the midnight revolver
    
         Even the promise of danger has gone dull
         Staring down the barrel of a .45
    
         Suck on the barrel
         Suck on the barrel
         Suck... suck 'til it's dry
    
         For all reflections look the same
         In the shine of the midnight revolver
    
         Down In Misery
         Down In Misery
    
         Just a bullet away
         Just a bullet away from leavin' you
         Just a bullet away
         Stop the voices in my head
    
    All roads they lead to shame
    All drowning in the blame
    Reflections look the same
    In the shine of the midnight revolver
    
    All hide beneath a skin
    A hope so paper thin
    I'm at the door again
    And the shine of the midnight revolver
    
         Even the promise of danger has gone dull
         Staring down the barrel of a .45
    
         Suck on the barrel
         Suck on the barrel
         Suck... suck 'til it's dry
    
         Do all reflections look the same
         In the shine of the midnight revolver
    
         'Cause you lied
         Yes you lied
    
         Just a bullet away
         Just a bullet away from leavin' you
         Just a bullet away
         Stop the voices in my head
