The gun, the gum, the rum, the slug

The gun, the gum, the rum, the slug

Side by side

Lying on the table.

Life is hard,

But who cares?

Nobody cares

I want to believe this.

Why go on?

Where is the exit sign?

 

The gun, the gum, the rum, the slug

One to keep me courage

One to keep the note in place

One is the channel

One will provide the exit.

 

The gun, the gum, the rum, the slug

Heart is weary

Eyes are teary

Palms are sweaty

5,000 friends?

Wonder how many would notice.

 

The gun, the gum, the rum, the slug

Clock is ticking

Brain no longer thinking

I’m done writing

It will be a messy ending.

 

The gun, the gum, the rum, the slug

It doesn’t matter no more

Tell them I love them

But it’s time to leave them

Life is hard

I can’t deny it

Nobody cares

I can’t but believe this

I can’t go on

Exiting on me terms

 

Signed

King Olulu, not from Zulu (C)
