  • With your bright yellow gun, you own the sun
    And I think I need a little poison
    To keep me tame keep me awake
    I have nothing to offer but confusion
    And the circus in my head, and the middle of the bed
    In the middle of the night
    With your bright silver frown, you own the town
    And I think I need a little poison
    I have no secrets I have no lies
    I have nothing to offer but the middle of the night
    And I think you need a little poison
    You leak one apple a week to survive
    And you still have to ask if you're alive
    You have nothing to offer but police my dreams
    Keep me clean keep me awake
    With your bright yellow gun, you own the sun
    And I think I need a little poison
    With your bright silver grin, you own sin
    And I think I need a little poison
    Bright yellow gun
