It can kill from any distance but you never see it strike
There isn't any warning, no blinding flash of light
It hits you when your back's turned or when your eyes are closed
There isn't any shelter and it cannot be controlled

It can be as subtle as a whisper in the dark
Or as brutal and as cutting as the teeth of a shark

The murder weapon
The murder weapon

There is no good description for the way it makes you feel
It's as lethal as a stiletto and more easily concealed
It sometimes is strategic and sometimes not at all
But you get caught in the fallout, win, lose or draw

There is no escape except to go completely mad
If it doesn't kill you right at first it makes you wish it had

The murder weapon
The murder weapon

The murder weapon
The murder weapon
