All roads they lead to shame
All drowning in the blame
All reflections look the same
In the shine of the midnight revolver

All hide beneath the skin
A hope so paper thin
I'm at the door again
And the shine of the midnight revolver

Even the promise of danger has gone dull
Staring down the barrel of a .45

Suck on the barrel, suck on the barrel
Suck it till it's gone dry
For all reflections look the same
In the shine of the midnight revolver

Redemption purify
Will nothing satisfy
The scars just multiply
In the shine of a midnight revolver

Twisting in apocalypse
Death upon the fingertips
Frigid metal touches lips
And the shine of the midnight revolver

'Cause you lied

Just a bullet away
Just a bullet away from leavin' you
Just a bullet away
Stop the voices in my head

Caressing death again
Becomes the heroin
Forbidden medicine
Puts a shine on the midnight revolver

Eternal borderline
All the faces intertwine
Oh God, now I see mine
In the shine of the midnight revolver

Even the promise of danger has gone dull
Staring down the barrel of a .45

Suck on the barrel, suck on the barrel
Suck, suck till it's dry
For all reflections look the same
In the shine of the midnight revolver

Down in misery
Down in misery

Just a bullet away
Just a bullet away from leavin' you
Just a bullet away
Stop the voices in my head

All roads they lead to shame
All drowning in the blame
Reflections look the same
In the shine of the midnight revolver

All hide beneath a skin
All hope so paper thin
I'm at the door again
In the shine of the midnight revolver

Even the promise of danger has gone dull
Staring down the barrel of a .45

Suck on the barrel, suck on the barrel
Suck, suck till it's dry
Do all reflections look the same
In the shine of the midnight revolver

'Cause you lied
Yes, you lied

Just a bullet away
Just a bullet away from leavin' you
Just a bullet away
Stop the voices in my head
