Shoot Me

there’s no blood
and no scars
no excessive nights of drinking at the bar

i am dreaming of the time
we climbed the roof in waterloo
as we’re looking on the city
i would rather look at you
and i’m thinking about telling you
as if you didn’t know
but i sense your hesitation
so i simply gaze below

you have let me down
in summertime
i get the runaround
you let this die

there’re no highs
like before
and no lows necessitating your defense no more

and i guess that things look different
from an elevated place
if you feel that you’re above it all
i cannot save my face
so i promise you eternity
and you commit a while
and it’s obviously ominous
but i am in denial

you have let me down
in summertime
I get the runaround
you let this die

what you got for me
an english word, a touch
a letdown in a month
i’m not worth much

and a shot rings through the city
it annihilates your pledge
i don’t notice that it hit me
til i stumble off the edge
i am falling from the rooftop
i am bleeding from the head
and the night air rushes past me
in a moment i’ll be dead

and the last thing that i’m seeing
as i look up from the street
is the smoking gun you’re holding
blur as you look down on me
but the thing that really gets me
more than you holding the gun
is that this dream feels
better than the things you’ve really done

The Outside World Saint Catharines, Ontario

'The Outside World' was born out of the wreckage of the grunge era, towards the late 90s. As bands like the ‘Smashing Pumpkins’ and ‘Matthew Good Band’ were dropping like flies, our band realized that the old adage about wanting something done right applies particularly when you’re a connoisseur.

We hope you enjoy our music as much as we do.
