  • Military issue
    Now I can trust you're never gonna
    Raise another fist at me again
    This is how I'll kiss you
    Hollow-tip to tissue
    Stronger than the sword and
    So much faster than the pen

    Fare thee well to the infidel
    Your God's name's not spelled the same

    God gave me a gun
    God gave me a gun
    Might makes right now
    Whom shall we smite now
    Bullet through the barrel
    Thy will be done
    God gave me a gun

    Screaming of the engines
    Bringing down the vengeance
    Hell from the heavens is state of the art
    Tell the ones you love
    That the hawk's killed the dove
    And I can save your soul
    With a bullet through the heart
    Fare thee well to the infidel
    Your God's name's not spelled the same
    God gave me a gun
    God gave me a gun
    Might makes right now
    Whom shall we smite now
    Bullet through the barrel
    thy will be done
    God gave me a gun
    God gave me a gun

    M ade me in his image
    Bade me do some damage
    Now the grapes of wrath
    Are ripe on the vine
    Kill to make us holy
    Kill to make us free
    Take an eye for an eye
    And make the whole world blind

    Fare thee well to the infidel
    Your God's name's not spelled the same

    God gave me a gun
    God gave me a gun
    Might makes right now
    Whom shall we smite now
    Bullet through the barrel
    Thy will be done
    God gave me a gun
    God gave me a gun

    Might makes right now
    Whom shall we smite now
    Bullet through the barrel
    Thy will be done
    God gave me a gun Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
