Lyrics:
Guns In The Sky [Version (a)]:

INXS
Kick
1987
Ooh ah ah yea ooh

See the sound, it crashes in all around
It gets in, now take your hands
And raise them up into the air
That's all around ya
Now bring 'em down like a clock at two
Amd shake your head, know what to do
They wanna put guns in the sky
Someone out there ain't gonna like it
But it could be good
Make us love each other
Have to realize I own the future

Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky

Child grows up to see guns in the sky
Used to be on T.V
Wanna change, forgot the joke
It's great to see you
I'm running late, da da da
Love your hair, da da da
Lend me a ten, da da da
Love your big house, da da da
Could you spare a dime?
Well I'm sick of it
It's a load of shit
We could stop the world
And let out all the fools
And let them go live
With their guns in the sky

Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky
 
The Song:

"Guns In The Sky" is the first song off INXS' album Kick. Beck and his fourth Record Club covered the album in its entirety.

The original song is a metallic throb, and the Record Club plays it very faithfully. Angus Andrew of Liars sings it, which works, as the song does sound Liar-y, with the percussive beats and wall of guitars. The guitar solo in the middle is played by Sergio Dias of Os Mutantes. Beck is just part of the crowd on this one, as he sings backup vocals with everyone, and is one of 4 electric guitars.
