Awoke where the light 
Hit me right in the temple 
Felt something cold
 Touch my toes as it passed 

 Might not be the face you'd expect 
But he's clearly insane
Got me pegged in the back

Just need a bit of the camera  Point the gun at the eyes
Or at the knees, had to shoot, had to fight  Gonna take out the gunman 

Bit of the camera 
Made a run for our lives 
Take out the knees, had to choose, had to find
 Gonna take out the gunman 

Eyes huge, so little left of something  Cracks and clues, he's crazy as a straw 
Why denied, does no one care or nothing 
How, you ask, I ever last so long

'Cause I, I went blind, a blinding riot
He's regretting every word
 Those empty lies
One more tonight, a blinding riot
As I summon every nerve 

Just need a bit of the camera  Point the gun at the eyes
Or at the knees, had to shoot, had to fight  Gonna take out the gunman 

A bit of the camera 
Made a run for our lives 
Take out the knees, had to choose, had to find
 Gonna take out the gunman  Gonna take out the gunman  Gonna take out the gunman 

I'm gonna take out
I'm gonna take out
I'm gonna take out
I'm gonna take out

Just need a bit of the camera  Point the gun at the eyes
Or at the knees, had to shoot, had to fight  Gonna take out the gunman 

Bit of the camera 
Made the run for our lives 
I'm so amazed at the way it was televised  Gonna take out the gunman  Gonna take out the gunman 
I'm gonna take out the gunman 
I'm gonna take out the gunman
