That's When I Reach for My Revolver
by Mission of Burma

Once I had my heroes
Once I had my dreams
But all of that is changed now
They've turned things inside out
The truth is not that comfortable, no

And mother taught us patience
The virtues of restraint
And father taught us boundaries
Beyond which we must go
To find the secrets promised us, yeah

That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit fights to find its way

A friend of mine once told me
His one and only aim
To build a giant castle
And live inside his name
Cry and whispers sing in muted pain

That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit fights to find its way

Tonight the sky is empty
But that is nothing new
Its dead eyes look upon us
And they tell me we're nothing but slaves

That's when I reach for my revolver
(But slaves)
That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when I reach for my revolver

The song rings even more true today than it did back then.

Islayman you mean if you are 50 to 60 you WERE listening to college radio

Nick Wick

Voivod do no wrong friend

Islayman

Hey if you are 50 to 60 then you weren't listening to college radio. Other than that you never had a chance.

Fuzzy Wuzzy

Dude, you did nothing wrong, just never stop searching for good tunes, life's too short to listen to crappy music. :-)

cooliofoolio

You discovered it, and so you have done nothing wrong.

A true post-punk classic.
