Bullet Cry

Did you hear the bullet cry?
I never knew how I’ve always known
I heard the bullet cry
Weeping bitterly in the chamber
I heard the bullet cry

The hammer pulled back a tolling bell
Click click snicket
Tolling tolling waiting hell

Did you hear the bullet cry?
I never knew how I’ve always known
I heard the bullet cry
Hammer struck and sent it on its way.
I heard the bullet cry

Spinning graceful, pirouetting
Faithful through the fear thick air
Terrible thunder ripping flesh from bone

Did you hear the bullet cry?
I never knew how I’ve always known
I heard the bullet cry
Ending, changing, hollowing lives
I heard the bullet cry

A small portion of the sometimes horribly sad life of a bullet.
