Hey Man, Nice Shot

On January 22, 1987 R. Budd Dwyer, Pennsylvania state treasurer, shot himself with a .357 Magnum revolver during a press conference. He was about to receive a long sentence from U.S. District Court Judge Malcolm Muir after being convicted of of 11 counts of conspiracy, mail fraud, perjury, and interstate transportation in aid of racketeering. He was convinced that his conviction was a result of political persecution. In an alternate reality it would have been interesting for people to have learned about this event from Filter (the band) as opposed to a smiling anchorman with perfect hair. Maybe even they (the enigmatic ‘they’) could have interrupted normal programming and just played this song/video (depending on if it was radio or TV) then returned to whatever show was on without any further explanation.

 

I wish I would’ve met you

Now it’s a little late

What you could’ve taught me

I could have saved some face

They think that your early ending

Was all wrong

For the most part they’re right

But look how they all got strong

That’s why I say man, nice shot

What a good shot man

A man

Has gun

Hey man

Have fun

Nice shot

Now that the smoke’s gone

And the air is all clear

Those who were right there

Got a new kind of fear

You’d fight and you were right

But they were just too strong

They’d stick it in your face

And let you smell what they consider wrong

That’s why I say hey man, nice shot

What a good shot man

A man

Has gun

Hey man

Have fun

Nice shot

I wish I would have met you

I wish I would have met you

I’d say

Nice shot
