"Robert's got a quick hand."
"He's got a rolled cigarette."
"Yeah he found a six-shooter gun."
"In his dad's closet, in the box of fun things."
"All the other kids with the pumped up kicks."
"You better run, better run, outrun my gun."
"I reason with my cigarette."
"Then say, "Your hair's on fire, you must've lost your wits, yeah?"
"Cause dinner's in the kitchen and it's packed in ice."
"You better run, better run, faster than my bullet."
