lay down your guns

Do you know what’s worth fighting for
When it’s not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating
Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide
Did someone break your heart inside
You’re in ruins
One, 21 Guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 Guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
You and I…
When you’re at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn’t pass
Nothing’s ever built to last
You’re in ruins
One, 21 Guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 Guns

THROW UP YOUR ARMS

INTO THE SKYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

YOU AND I……………..

Another strip about a contemporary issue (gun control) that hasn’t changed significantly in over twenty years.

(Heavy Metal issue #144, May 1993 - Page 81 C'mon America! Lay Down Your Guns by Fleener)

You are a Warlock, secret-seeker, hoarder of knowledge, wielder of the Light. You search the cosmos for knowledge and purpose.

You have been taken.

Lay down your guns, your Light. You need not struggle anymore. There is no more secrets.

What questions do you have? What do you search for now?

You lust for knowledge. Your greed for knowing is boundless. Yet you know that there are some things you can’t know. Some secret locked away that will complete the puzzle. But you will never find it. So you look deeper and see what is to come.

You have sight-beyond-sight. You see what others don’t, and you use it to obliterate.

There is a knife for you.
It is shaped like [what is to come].

Take up the knife. Use it to find what you seek. Take your new shape.
