Living these days is making me nervous
Archaic doctrine no longer serve us
Now we're left as silent witnesses
We don't know quite what this is
Other than a war that can't be won

Oh, it's tension
So much tension
Living on both sides of the gun

Well, I feel like I'm crowded, I can't get out
World keeps on filling me up with doubt
When you're trapped you got no voice
Where you're born you got no choice
Other than to go and take you some

Oh, it's tension
Too much to mention
When you're living on both sides of the gun
Both sides of the gun

One dimensional fool
In a three dimensional world
One dimensional fool
In a three dimensional world

One dimensional fool
In a three dimensional world, sing it

Politics, it's a drag
They put one foot in the grave and the other on the flag
Systems rotten to the core, young and old deserve much more
Than struggling every day until you're done

Oh, tension
Too much to mention
cause we're Living on both sides of the gun

Mmm, tension
Oh, I can't mention
We're living on both sides of the gun
Living on both sides of the gun
Living on both sides of the gun
