Shotgun is the eleventh song on Primo Victoria album by Sabaton.

Background

Pär: When Joakim had bought his first studio stuff, he started by doing simpler songs than Sabaton, this was one of them. We liked it, but it felt it was not correct for Sabaton, so we never recorded it. When Joakim writes his songs, he just improvises the lyrics before we write the final ones. Mostly to remember the melodies. We long discussed if we would record the song "Shotgun", but we never did a full Sabaton song out of it."[1]

Information

  • Judging from what Pär said, it's one of the earliest songs written by Joakim.
  • The song is clearly a leftover from the early days and it was never reworked into a proper Sabaton song with historical themed lyrics.

Lyrics

The dark compulse me every day
The countdown has begun
I am your master, number one
Realizing pain

I was whole in the underworld
To live by Satan's will
A creature of unholy pain
The vengeance is my name

I walk alone the path for evil
I'm Satan's number one
Taste my fury, take my vengeance
Now it's time to die

I'm bringing out the shotgun!

I am a breaker of this world
Destruction is my name
Bringing pain and infamy
Into the face of man

I walk alone the path for evil
I'm Satan's number one
Taste my fury, take my vengeance
Now it’s time to die

I'm bringing out the shotgun!

The dark one haunts me every day
The countdown has begun
I am your master, number one
Realizing pain

I walk alone the path for evil
I'm Satan's number one
Taste my fury, take my vengeance
Now it's time to die

I'm bringing out the shotgun!

I'm bringing out the shotgun!
