In This Moment - Lay Your Gun Down Lyrics




What have I gone and fucked up again this time?
How did I become my own demise?
All these twisted little parts of me
Afraid of losing everything
So I, pulled the trigger and I fired away
I pulled the trigger and I fired away

Can you still hear my voice from afar?
Your dead flowers are still hanging on my walls
I felt God when you were near
For once everything seemed so clear
Until you, you pulled the trigger and you fired away
You pulled the trigger and you fired away

The shot you took was overdue
It's a good thing I am made of scar tissue
Until you fired away
(Won't you lay your guns down?)
You pulled the trigger and fired away
(Won't you lay your guns down?)
Won't you please lay your gun down?
(Won't you lay your guns down?)
Oh, lay your gun down
(Won't you lay your guns down?)
Won't you lay your gun down?
Won't you lay your gun down?

  5. Cody Cunningham

    Ahh suicide. Took my best friend. Very nearly took me. I blame my family for keeping me here. I have fought so hard.. And a large part of me still wants it to be overwith. But I can't leave them to suffer. So I will suffer instead, in their place -- I will live in agony for their sake. However long it takes before I breathe my last... or God rescues me from this cold world. <3

  6. Allen Hemphill

    You inevitably lay your gun down.

    Beautiful song. I love the dirty raw feel to it the same way I love NIN's hurt. And her voice is just so potent.
    "Good thing I am made of scar tissue" just hits me like a hammer.

  18. Madeleine Angelika

    Just got home. I started the first song on the way home from work and had to listen to the entire album. This is one of my favorite pieces from any artists ever. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘😢😢😢😢

  19. jadeLoTuZ

    Some great new sound from ITM. Makes me think of NIN ... and that is eargasmic and alot of feels, IMHO.

    This song realy hit me. Maybe it was in this moment of my life ... (clever) where I in my relationship with my deeply loved but troubled girlfriend, that goes thrue a quickening, could relate to these lyrics that made it hit so deep!
    Or was it just the new mellow NIN-ish but its own style that made it ... who knows?

    This new album is one of my favorits anyhow... and is actually a fantastic conclusion to the aggressive previous albums. Like an awakening. (it feels like it anyhow).

  20. Lydia Keenatch

    Love this song

  21. Jason Daniel Gée III

    Awesome. Sweet Album Art. Looks like my right hand when it died. Went from Trigger Finger to seized arm to Trigger Finger still. lol.

  34. Lydia Keenatch

    afraid of losing everything

    This song saved my life

  36. reagan torp

    I'm absolutely in fucking love 😭😍

  37. michael craig

    Im surprised that it only has 2k likes.

  38. In This Moment EESTI

    I think that this, River of fire black wedding and 2 video singles are best from this album. When I heard this I was so happy and this became my favourite ballad since the ones on Beautiful Tragedy, for some reason ''The fighter'' and ''World In Flames'' left me feeling cold. This album is great... musically speaking I love that they almost left industrial metal style on this record, but lyrically Black Widow was better. First four albums are my most favourite, but I will always love them. Only wish is that she would scream again, but I don't know if this is possible anymore since she has badly damaged her voice with that.

  39. David Daffron

    I love this entire album!!!

  40. heather moulder

    Moved me deeply

  41. Andy White

  43. Emma YamYam

  45. Billy Townsend

    I don't feel very much at anytime. Things in my life have taken that ability away from me. I feel this. Thank you, mam. ndnboytx

  46. Avon Cornish

    This is hauntingly beautiful and I love it.

  47. ClutchV8p

    America needs to take this song's message to heart.

  48. Mia Guaspari

    Living in Vegas and in the wake of the shooting that just happened, I hear this song for the first time. Made me emotional. Alot of us here are still having a hard time dealing with the nightmare and the aftermath that hit our home and went down as the largest mass shooting, another statistic. Thank you for this song. I feel everyone needs to lay their guns down and start looking at the devastation and destruction that humans do with guns. What did you go and fuck up this time? So many lives! This song is amazing and I don't care if it sounds like NIN, it sends a message, one we should all listen to and live by. Love you, Maria!

  49. andrew carson

    This song is Ehhh

  50. PshhAnonymous

    If I put my headphones in and turn the volume all the way up, I hear the "believe" at 3:53. It's there, she didn't forget.

  51. ian

    the album shows the band is developing and trying new things. I love this song and Witching Hour the best

  52. Brian MetalHead

    I started on ITM in 2007....going strong as ever.

  53. Anthony Saavedra

    Sounds so much like something I can never have imo

  54. [ Blacky ]

    Very good song! Reminds me Heart of The Pretty Reckless!

  55. Владимир Бром

    WTF, what this is the shit?!

  56. tbooker2010

    This song should be featured in a future Resident Evil games or movie.

  57. Nicole Janosik

    they are the best metal band going! this song is hauntingly beautiful and sad because suicide is unfortunately an epidemic

  58. Senor Vida

    This is a cry to mankind to end all violence in the world

  59. Ardath Beekman

    she is our queen i love her

  60. firstmusic00

    Channeling her inner NIN, for sure. This piece has Reznor written all over it.

  61. Surcie Jerge-Zumbrun

    Damn, I feel this entire album!!! Deep, u can't help it!!!

  62. Kynthia Johnston

    Her voice with the choice of music to go along makes this hauntingly beautiful.

  63. Amethyst Midnight

    A close friend of mine shot himself a few months ago and I still think of him all the time. Vicente, I miss you man....

  64. IDream0fDeathbutDreamsDon'tComeTrue

    NIN VIBEZZ

  65. Martin Hübel

    Out Of Hell from Black Widow😼

  66. Rowan Reid

    NIИ - Hurt / Something I Can Never Have vibes

    Theoretical Hybrid

    Shit you're right

  67. Vince Nel

    Shit's growing on me quickly... Kick ass good

  68. Kynthia Johnston

    Even if it does have a similarity to NIN's Something I Can't have it's not the same thing. Maybe she drew some inspiration from that song, or elsewhere, but it's ITM's own work and sound. No different than say... doing workouts in the gym. Lots of people do the same workouts, but they do it their own way. Or people who sell the same type of crafts, but they all have a different personal touch.

  69. Diego Jay

    I loved every album

  70. meowmixforcats

    Guess she's not at the gun show anymore

  71. Pellie Mcginnis

    Beautiful. I love Maria <3

  72. Jennifer Fish

    So far... this is the best ITM album I've absorbed. Fuck off if you don't agree. I'll cut you. -_-

    Matthias Rooffeners

    Jennifer Fish lmao before you even cut me I'll stab you over and over til you're dead.

  73. Kama K

    My beautiful golden-haired lady I love you my queen ❤ Your voice makes my heart go through orgasm , thank you :**

  75. BeautyByYae

    Yes yes😍

  76. Casadorez

    This song would of been WAY better and more awesome if her voice wasn't hidden with all those effects messing with the vocals. Saddens me a bit, hope she sings this acoustically live or something soon. (All My Opinion)

  77. CJ Scott

    Thank you In This Moment, not only for this beautiful song but for this new album. Thank you so much.

  78. Hello It's marii

    Feels like Christmas lol I've been listening to all of them and they are so good 💕

  79. kornfreak814

    Downloaded this shortly after midnight when released, was my fave song, cuz of the days prior events, with Chester..... another whole sad story, but becuz, this is a epidemic, i dont wanna see anyone else die, at all, please, no one else go....u need anything anybody to talk to just message me.....

  80. Sierra Justice

    love it yes

  81. whtdvl927

    Very very much like NIN Something I Can Never Have

  82. Sammantha Perfater

    <3 <3 <3   )0(   I adore your creativity and you will always have a Blood legion following

  83. Tom Stohler

    When and were can I get this album?????

  84. PsycopathToasterly

    Who the Fuck is cutting all these damn Onions

  85. Gabriel Bil

    Que música foda <3 I love this music!

  86. Renan Chrystian

    I love this music. 💜🤘

  87. Tori V

    when she sang this at the concert I teared up fuckin beautiful song. Im getting chills all over such a strong meaning

    WarriorBoss

    Toria V ugh ikr!! All about all these people shooting others wheb the victims never did anything wrong

    Tori V

    WarriorBoss_ yes but this song is about suicide by gun and she's asking you to please put it down. Youre gonna be OK. Along those lines and I love it because I struggle with thoughts so this song means so much to me

  88. James Givens

    Idk. I like her heavier stuff but some of her stuff I've been hearing is like she can't decide what genre she wants to go with. Stick with heavy

  89. Dark Rose Quartz

    Beautiful 😳😳

  90. Mairel Koyuki

    OMG... Mi canción favorita del álbum...

  91. Ashlyn Clark

    Honestly this made me cry my eyes out because it reminds me of Chester Bennington. What a coincidence that this song officially was released the day after he commited suicide. I know he didn't use a gun, but I feel like the gun is a metaphor for taking your life in general. At least that's how I interpret it

  92. Илья Мудрый

    I was waiting for your "BELIEVE" in the end of this song... This is my favorite song from this album. But I believe, that you are believing in us and yourself. Just follow that way. I'm so glad to hear your voise, i'm crying, sincerely.

    Eliesjuh123

    Илья Мудрый it actually is at the end of this song, but it's very soft. Around 3:55

  93. Yasmin Misaki

    Perfect Music 💙💙💙💙

  94. Violent Violet

    my heart on this one 😭😭😭

  95. Jennifer de biersack

    I am crying.... 😭

  96. DarkMatilda

    This song feels like Out of Hell, not bad

  97. Kimberley Hernandez

    While i do like this album and I think change for a band is good (cause hearing the same thing over and over gets boring), I think they could do away with the effects to her voice. Maria has an amazing voice and she doesn't need any of that. In this moment will probably always be one of my favorite bands though. The only thing that kinda irks me about seeing them live is how theatrical they are now and how they only play songs off of their new albums such as Blood, Black Widow, and now probably this one. Don't get me wrong I like all the albums stated, but i would like to hear Beautiful Tragedy, violet skies, gun show, or any other songs from their previous albums.

    Hiraeth

    I'm honestly not sure if she could do what she did on her first three albums if she wanted to. I can't get into Black Widow at all because it's just too focused on her image rather than the music, but this isn't TERRIBLE. I may actually end up buying this new album; I haven't decided yet.

    I mean, on ITM's first 3 albums, she had some pretty heavy screams, stuff that doesn't exist on their later albums. "Burn" off of Blood might be the closest we hear to it, but it still isn't to the same degree. Black Widow and this album don't have anything near it. Even her clean vocals have gotten less angelic and more raspy. For example, comparing this song to, say, Into the Light from The Dream, or World in Flames from A Starcrossed Wasteland.. Her voice just doesn't have the same effect anymore.

  98. Kristy S

    Love it
    Love you guys

  99. Seraphina

    I love them so much but not a single song I liked =\ No song was special, or sounded amazing, like ... they're not shit, but there was no spark with any song. :( Still love them, I'll wait for the next album, hopefully it's better.

    Zombie Luka

    Yeah...I can agree with you. I feel like they all kind of blend into each other TOO much and no lyrics are particularly special feeling, yanno? I'm someone who likes more of ITM's upbeat music, so this is just my opinion, lol. The only one I can tell I'll actually enjoy more than slightly is Half God Half Devil. :S

    Lovebug_taffy 22

    i'm glad i'm not the only one that feels this way

    Lizzy Martinez

    yeah i felt like that for the entirety of ritual besides roots and oh lord and maybe black wedding. I felt like that wit hBlackW at first. Honestly listening to it again with really help it you want ot like it. Of course dont force yourself. But we all hope their next album is good too!!
