I would trade my life for yours, behind closed doors
It’s better to be the one shooting than the one getting shot.
This could be a subtle hint to suicidal thoughts.
This whole song is personifying a gun. Now think about the line “Behind closed doors”. What kind of person commits suicide in broad daylight? Better said, who would go to times square to commit suicide? Anyone that makes a big scene before they kill themselves or try to kill themselves are doing it for attention.
That’s what’s brilliant about this line. It can go in 2 totally different directions.
