  • It was a cool winter's morning
    Somewhere shortly past 9:00 AM
    The armored car they wanted to heist wasn't coming
    So instead they went for the bank

    The fateful duo that sat in the get-away car
    Heavily sedated with thousands of round
    Armor piercing, fully automatic weapons
    The bowls of wrath poured out on the ground

    Baptized in a firefight
    Hot blood running cold as ice
    Forty four minutes of target practice
    All hell's breaking loose
    Outgunned, watching "The Force" come to a firefight with a pocketknife
    Getting schooled until they shot Achilles' heel
    And brought down the beast!!!

    This was an accident waiting to happen
    It wasn't if it would happen, it was when
    The city's people sabotaged themselves
    Calling their firepower an unneeded expense

    The two most violent men it seemed couldn't be stopped
    Standard police issue guns were just not enough
    But SWAT arrived to settled the fight
    Between AK-47 and AR-15

    Baptized in a firefight
    Hot blood running cold as ice
    Forty four minutes of target practice
    All hell's breaking loose
    Outgunned, watching "The Force" come to a firefight with a pocketknife
    Getting schooled until they shot Achilles' heel
    And brought down the beast!!!

    Baptized in a firefight
    Hot blood running cold as ice
    Forty four minutes of target practice
    All hell's breaking loose
    Outgunned, watching "The Force" come to a firefight with a pocketknife
    Getting schooled until they shot Achilles' heel
    And brought down the beast!!! Writer/s: DAVE MUSTAINE
