BILLY IS THE BULLET, TOMMY IS THE GUN
Tommy is a friendly guy so charming and so calm
that you could not imagine him doing any harm.
You'd swear he wore a halo just like all the saints
pictured in all the paintings that the masters used to paint.
But Tommy is an aritst who paints himself to blind
others to the viciousness churning in his mind.
His skill is his deception, he is a master of the art
of concealing satan who is holed up in his heart.
Tom's best friend is Billy, he is hard to be around
he is very negative and will always bring you down.
He has a personality just like shotgun lead
and if around him long enough he'll blow apart your head.
Tommy knows that Billy has a very heavy case
and will drive you into fits when he is in your space.
So he brings Billy to a party then moseys off away
to watch him agitate you till your nerves begin to fray.
Tommy's like a sniper who watches from his spot
as you stagger all around the victim of his shot.
Billy is the bullet and Tommy is the gun
and Tommy will shoot Billy at almost anyone.
You don't know he's packing, you do not hear a sound
when he takes aim at you and cranks off a Billy round.
So when your nerves are feeling shot take a look around awhile
and you will see a muzzle flash come from Tommy's smile
Tommy is the trigger man and his bullet it is Bill
and he is gonna shoot you down that he gets his thrill.
