Billy Talent - Big Red Gun Lyrics




Brothers in arms that share my fears,
Time to protect what you hold dear.
There's been a rise in new ideas,
Threatening to change the way we live.

Who knows what trouble's found a way,
Found a way to your door today.
Who knows what trouble's on its way,
On its way to intimidate.

All I want is a big red gun
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah oh
I'm gonna shoot, shoot, shoot at the setting sun
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah oh
And all I want is a big red gun,
I'm gonna shoot, shoot, shoot till the thrill is gone
'Cause this is my right no matter the cost
Stay outta my sight when baby's got a big red gun
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah oh
Baby's got a big red gun
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah oh

Pride is a weapon in your hand.
Freedom awards the faithful man.
I hear the message loud and clear,
Straight from his lips into my ear.

And Lord I just can't walk away,
Walk away from the enemy.
The law will never disagree,
On the target of my insecurities.

All I want is a big red gun
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah oh
I'm gonna shoot, shoot, shoot at the setting sun
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah oh
And all I want is a big red gun,
I'm gonna shoot, shoot, shoot till the thrill is gone
And how many lives will have to be lost,
To understand why my baby's got a big red gun?

Baby's got a big red gun
Baby's got a big red gun
Baby's got a big red gun
Baby's got a big red gun

We call them twisted and deranged,
(Baby's got a big red gun)
But we gave them the keys to annihilate
(Baby's got a big red gun)
How long before the next one's in the crowd?
(Baby's got a big red gun)
So proud of all your history,
(Baby's got a big red gun)
But history made a big mistake.
(Baby's got a big red gun)
The judge and jury stand before you now.
(Baby's got a big red gun)

'Cause baby's got a big red gun
Baby's got a big red gun
Baby's got a big red gun
Oh mama what have I become?

    I am hooked on this song. The bass, singing, it's all bad ass. And the best part... Oh yeah yeah yeahyeah. The way they toned that part is sick.

  4. Pau Clavel

    My favorite song of Billy Talent. Amazing

  5. Lewis V

    This sounds more punk rock than their other stuff, I can tell they tried to go more 70s punk with this album, some parts of the album have the sound and themes but the energy is missing making the rest sound like post punk (urgh)

  6. c0rrupt.

    Nerf Battles be like

    Oranges for Tropicana

    All I want is a big blue gun

    "Pride is a weapon in your hands" - Love the double meaning in this line - very clever!

  13. Ludivine Frémaux

    The second verse is probably one of my favorite of all time :)

    Finally, someone who agrees with the "next one's in the CROWD" thing

  18. Rachel Birt

    How perfect is this song to describe the USA until this very day?
    I suppose that the "conservatives of the US" feel more powerful than ever to exercise their views of many facets in "perfection" and "purge" their "perfect" America of "Undesirables" with their "gawd-given guns" even though that amendment is WAY out-dated.
    :)

    AceTaxia

    Damn, you are an idiot

    Professor Groyper

    Retard alert. American conservatism made the US what it was yesterday, and today it's slipping into a 3rd world shithole led by the very invaders we fought off years ago. It has nothing to do with perfection and everything to do with preservation. We might feel more powerful, but it's only because recent history has shown that we are in the right. Those like you who would threaten our way of life *are* undesirable, but only because you are the bad guy. You are the threat.

    K then

    🖕🤡🖕

  19. Benny

    I love how this song is just about how shitty american gun laws are lol

  20. Logan True

    I bought the album.

    Rachel Birt

    I did too <3
    only on Google Music.
    My Work Truck's CD player doesn't work :'c
    Although, I suppose that that truck is gonna be scrapped any day now, so maybe I should invest in the CD copy anyways? 3':

  21. Mare Hounslow

    my new fav song,cant wait to meet them backstage February 18th In Calgary,Alberta,Canada

  22. Mare Hounslow

    gonna meet them backstage on February 18th!! cant wait!

  23. Thomas Lovey

    definitely hitting up one of their concerts this year, they killed it with the new album

  24. 4harex

    Am I imagining things or does he says (the second time in the chorus) "And all I want is a big red CAPE" instead of gun again ?

    Ben To

    4harex Nope you are just cray cray, mate.

  25. GhostTech

    cool song thanks pavel, if its about communism i will shoot you i swear

    GhostTech

    fuck dude its about communism

    Tatu Karlsson

    It's actually about American gun laws (in this song red doesn't represent communism but blood of the innocents)

  26. Insomnia Rock

    They never disappoint

  27. Vermilion Zero

    As soon as I get my gun, I'll point it out the window at the setting sun XD

  28. Chester Cobblepot

    The older these guys get the better the lyrics and over all album they release, I cannot wait to be the old man telling my daughter to listen to these guys more, she already knows who they are, her favourites are This Suffering and Kingdom Of Zod so far

    Cedrik Samson

    she got good taste.

  29. The pigeon Man

    when ever this song comes on I'm like YAS

  30. John McCartney

    DUANE ... Best band on the planet? the band thanks-you... but No there not on that level... but its a good sound...

    Luke Sp8

    No, he's right

  31. Duane Young

    I've been following this band since their inception and I can honestly say that they are the best fucking band on the planet. I am now in my 50's and still listen to them flat out OH YEAH YEAH YEAHYEAH!!

    Carter Gooding

    can you try honesty for once like you should surrender because you have nothing to lose and your just chasing the sun. since you are in your 50's aren't you rusted from the rain, and saint veronika told me at a midnight mass that you were afraid of heights but you could be running across the tracks soon because your a time bomb ticking away

    Rachel Birt

    *You're just "chasing the sun"
    You're welcome 3':

    Cosmic Gem

    *your welcome

  32. Swedish_Steel

    this is way too relevant today :| awsome song

    LemonZeppelin

    Exactly, there's been a rise in new ideas (cultural marxism) and all I want is a big red gun (to get rid of it all instantly, plus red equals communism).

    Eli

    oh my fucking god dude

  33. Saber Crosby

    The drumming is epic!!!!!!

    flashpeter625

    Well, they had two drummers thinking about it.

    Xfier246

    everything is fucking epic

    Pau Clavel

    I think the guitar and the back vocals are perfect as well

  34. Antillus Raucus

    Was so excited to hear the studio version since Rock am Ring, thanks mate! :)

  35. Mare Hounslow
