Vapors, The - Galleries For Guns Lyrics




How you gonna keep me warm, now that the whole world's chloroformed
Well maybe it's the time of year, or maybe the calm before the storm
Oh we missed some show on the bbc
And we all gave up except for you and me
We sit here playing with snakes on a board
Talking about holidays over the wall
With the moonligth playing games around your eyes
You look like ice and almost hypnotized
But there ain't no rules to keep us apart
Just one for the head and one for the heart
Of the target man, target man, target man, target man
Aim at me
This is it, this is it, this is it, this is it
This is all I need
'cos I say, galleries for guns
Seem like no exchange at all
But I can give you armour if you keep me warm

People can be awful slow, or maybe they just don't want to know
But I'll stay with you if you'll stay with me
And I'll give you all that you'll ever need
Those butterfly boys may look very neat
But they never stay long and they never stay sweet
The moonlight's playing games around your eyes
You look like ice and almost hypnotized
But there ain't no rules to keep us apart
Just one for the head and one for the heart
Of the target man, target man, target man, target man
Aim at me

This is it, this is it, this is it, this is it
This is all I need

'cos I say, galleries for guns
Seem like no exchange at all
But I can give you armour if you keep me warm

How you gonna keep me warm
How you gonna keep me warm
How you gonna keep me warm

Now that the whole world's chloroformed
Oh we missed some show on the bbc
And we all gave up except for you and me
We sit here playing with snakes on a board
Talking about holidays over the wall
With the moonligth playing games around your eyes
You look like ice and almost hypnotized
But there ain't no rules to keep us apart
Just one for the head and one for the heart
Of the target man, target man, target man, target man
Aim at me
This is it, this is it, this is it, this is it
This is all I need

'cos I say, galleries for guns
Seem like no exchange at all
But I can give you armour if you keep me warm

    This is such an incredible song. This (as well as the rest of The Vapors songs) has really been helping me through some hard times lately. What a phenomenal song writer and band. Really wish they had had a 3rd album. Would have been amazing!

    @pxkmproductions1 it's sad that more people didn't know who they were or more songs besides Turning Japanese..

    PXKM Productions Gaming

    I agree, I agree. Whenever I tell people they're one of my favorite bands, they either say, "Who's that?" or "The guys who did Turning Japanese? haha".

    Wish David Fenton could have been able to spread and explore his artist voice more (and the same can be said for the rest of the band with their playing).

    Andrew Davies

    The Vapors are back together playing gigs and at the end of February they went into the studio to record that elusive third album

  3. taljechin

    It's *not* on Magnets from 1981, only the 2000 CD Re-Release. I looked all over for it, back in the day...
    It was only released on a single, the B-side(!) to Spiders. And later on their Greatest Hits album. Strange that they couldn't hear themselves that this is their best song!

    Unofficial vg

    taljechin sorry to ask 3 years later, but are there any other one off songs like this not on their two albums. I need to hear every one of their songs

    taljechin

    I don't think so, but there seems to be more videos here on YouTube about them nowadays. Think I saw some concert vids from the punk era as well as some new ones from last year.

  4. D Pallio

    This 1981 non LP B-side is actually better than "turning Japanese"! But American audiences weren't into the Vapors' Clash-esque politics.

    Nalani Ó Dubháin

    Yeah, they were very underrated. Had some great songs.
