Trying to write yourself a rifle
Maybe sharpen up a song

from Guy Sebastian (Ft. Lupe Fiasco) – Battle Scars Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lupe knows The pen is mightier than the sword and a powerful message can bring them off the battlefield.

When we’re desperate in love, we might try turn to weapons in order to fight for our cause (love). In war, we use rifles to fight, and Lu’s pen is his weapon in hip hop.

So wait, is that a triple entendre?!
