"Now, George was a good straight boy to begin with, but there was bad blood in him;
someway he got into the magic bullets and that lead straight to Devil's work, just like marijuana leads to heroin;
you think you can take them bullets or leave 'em, do you?
Just save a few for your bad days?

Well, now, we all have those bad days when you can't shoot for sh-t.

The more of them magics you use, the more bad days you have without them
So it comes down finally to all your days being bad without the bullets
It's magics or nothin'
Time to stop chippying around and kidding yourself,
Kid, you're hooked... heavy as lead

And that's where old George found himself
Out there at the crossroads
Molding the Devil's bullets
Now a man figures it's his bullets, so it will
Hit what he wants to hit
But it don't always work that way

You see, some bullets is special for a single aim
A certain stag, or a certain person
And no matter where you are, that's where the bullet will end up
And in the moment of aiming, the gun turns into a dowser's wand
And points where the bullet wants to go."
