VAMPIRE WEEKEND lyrics : "Giving Up the Gun"

Your sword's grown old and rusty
Burnt beneath the rising sun
It's locked up like a trophy

Forgetting all the things it's done

And though it's been a long time

You're right back where you started from
I see it in your eyes
That now you're giving up the gun


When I was 17
I had wrists like steel

And I felt complete

And now my body fades

Behind a brass charade
And I'm obsolete


But if the chance remained
To see those better days
I'd cut the cannons down


My ears are blown to bits
From all the rifle hits

But I still crave that sound

CHORUS


I heard you play guitar
Down at a seedy bar

Where skinheads used to fight

Your Tokugawa smile

And your garbage style
Used to save the night


You felt the coming wave
Told me we'd all be brave
You said you wouldn't flinch


But in the years that passed
Since I saw you last

You haven't moved an inch

CHORUS


I see you shine in your way
Go on, go on, go on


CHORUS
