Emily bought a pistol with her paycheck
Her husband really thought that she should save it
But what he doesn't know won't hurt him (or just maybe it will)
Emily bought a pistol for the kill

Her husband was a businessman who traveled
When he was gone was when she came unraveled
The lipstick on his collar wasn't what she came to think
Emily sold her soul to make a scene

And all these things will end
And all these lines will bend
And all these broken hearts will mend
All these things will end

Emily saved her paycheck for a lawyer
A man who told her he could really help her
But all he really wanted from her was her nickels and her dimes
Because he knew that she would do hard time

And all these things will end
And all these lines will bend
And all these broken hearts will mend
All these things will end

Oh Emily, you're a mess
Oh Emily, you must confess
All your life you've waited for this moment to arrive
You've dreamed of broken trust and muderlust set in your eyes
The man you've always loved is sleeping next to you in bed
You only had a dream you shot him dead

Quote:
He lives in a cruel world
With gunfire and grenades
He holds a picture of his beloved girl
His tears flood the photo covered by dirt
Bandages around his face and head
Covering the cuts and bruises with the river of red

War, peace isn't meant to live forever
War, conflict will break the world in two

He looks like a torn up newspaper
Scrunched up at all sides and ends
Getting ready for the pain around the bend
His knees and feet are weakening
But his heart and soul are strengthening

War, peace won't last forever
War, conflict will break the world in two

He fights knowing each gunshot could be his last
He has to fight on, he can't concentrate on the past
The rough and stony dirt wraps around his skin
The ground full of rugged rocks pierces his feet

War, peace won't last forever
War, conflict will break the world in two

And its not his fault he got put here
In this barren and empty place
As the same for the others
They dream all night about the day
When they all return to their loved ones
Free of bombs and grenades and guns
wrote this one yesterday.

Another one by me.

Quote:
It makes me feel like a torn up page of a magazine
It makes me feel like a rolled up piece of plasticine
The bulldozer has a mind of its own
For some reason it can't leave me alone

And the bulldozer lifts dirt off the ground
Reveals the spirit that it has found
And the bulldozer shakes the ground
It makes the solid earth weak and fragile

Nobody knows why it acts like this
A body of solid metal that will hit or miss
It makes everything in its path disappear
And it was only silence I could hear
And oh I could sense the terror
It was as brutal as ever

And the bulldozer lifts dirt off the ground
It reveals the spirit it has found
And the bulldozer shakes the ground
It makes the solid earth weak and fragile

And i'll try, i'll try to talk to it
But I guess my words are going right through it
It still tries to dig up whats already been dug
Still trying like a persistent bug

And the bulldozer lifts dirt off the ground
It reveals the spirit it has found
And the bulldozer shakes the ground
It makes the solid earth weak and fragile

Inside the cold steel
You'll understand the anger that it feels
And you know that it wants revenge
Nobody knows why it acts like this
It'll try to deface the earth
It'll try to pull out the turf

And the bulldozer lifts dirt off the ground
Bulldozer
Bulldozer
This song may be a bit hit and miss because I was doing other things while writing it.
But i'm sure that this one is still among my very best.
