about

The goth classic from The Cure gets a hard-rock upgrade. Those that kill are already dead.

lyrics

Standing on a beach with a gun in my hand
Staring at the sea staring at the sand
Staring down the barrel at the arab on the ground
I see his open mouth but I hear no sound

I'm alive
I'm dead
I'm a stranger killing an arab

I can turn and walk away or a I can fire the gun
Staring at the sky staring at the sun
Whichever I choose it amounts to the same
Absolutely nothing

I feel the pistol jump smooth in my hand
Staring at the sky staring at the sand
Staring at myself reflected in the eyes of the dead man on the beach
