02. Inhaling A Bullet

Par Avion EP
by High Flight Society



 

How did it come down to this?
I canít be sure of
What it was I missed
The flags werenít flying

Wait it out or fight?
This could never end
Maybe either way I die
Thereís nothing left here to defend

Chorus:
I could not breathe without inhaling a bullet
God knows Iíve tried
You cut me down right to my face and I took it
But now itís time
Time to put this to an end
So that I can breathe again

I feel the tension build
In my trigger finger
Before you shoot to kill
Should I open fire?

You left me with no choice
Itís not what I want
Tried to kill me with your voice
Iíll do what I have to

Chorus:
I could not breathe without inhaling a bullet
God knows Iíve tried
You cut me down right to my face and I took it
But now itís time
Time to put this to an end
So that I can breathe again

Behind the Song:
ďI was visiting an art gallery checking out a collection of Civil War themed paintings. One of the works showed the opposing sides in a heated battle with bullets flying everywhere and the wounded taking cover," The description under the painting had what was supposedly a quote from a general at that battle, which read, "it seemed hard to breathe without inhaling a bullet." This reminded me of the book of James when he talks of how much destruction the tongue can bring. This song is describing a situation where 2 people are in a relationship and one is constantly hurling insults and hurtful words and the other.Ē Ė Michael Packer (High Flight Society)
