Locked and Loaded

Album: Cut the Crap (1997)
  • Whatcha gonna do when the sun don't shine
    And the moon don't come up right on time
    Whatcha gonna do when the storm won't break
    And the whip won't crack
    And the earth won't quake
    Whatcha gonna do when the knife won't cut
    The blood won't flow and ya mouth run dry
    Whatcha gonna do when it crumbles in your hand
    It's an eye for an eye when your high horse dies

    Primed and ready
    Feelin' nasty, seein' red
    Locked and loaded
    Locked and loaded
    Locked and loaded
    Aimin' for your soul
    Locked and loaded

    Whatcha gonna do when the lightnin' flash
    And ya bridges burn and ya start to crash
    And a pill won't take that pain away
    But it makes you feel good in a different way
    Who ya gonna blame when the man calls time
    And the clock runs down and your soul is mine
    And how ya gonna pray when ya hands are tied
    And you look in my face and you know I lied

    Primed and ready
    Feelin' nasty, seein' red
    Locked and loaded
    Locked and loaded
    Locked and loaded
    Aimin' for your soul
    Locked and loaded

    Primed and ready
    Feelin' nasty, seein' red
    Locked and loaded
    Locked and loaded
    Locked and loaded
    Aimin' for your soul
    Locked and loaded
    I'm your danger
    Feed me with your fear
    I'm your danger
    Smell me drawing near

    Primed and ready
    Feelin' nasty, seein' red
    Locked and loaded
    Locked and loaded
    Locked and loaded
    Aimin' for your soul
    Locked and loaded

    Primed and ready
    Feelin' nasty, seein' red
    Locked and loaded
    Locked and loaded
    Locked and loaded
    Aimin' for your soul
