What it was, wasn’t my fault
If I would have known, but,
Who could have known?
The cameras and the kids
The candids and the kindling
We’re fighting them all
They’ve done it again
What do her friends say?
Who was involved?
I’ll call it all off.
Cause I should have known but,
Who could have known?
Who could have known?

The needles, the space.
That time can’t erase
And buttoned down you’ll get the best of me.
The thrill of it all.
The rise and the fall
And buttoned down you’ll get the best of me.

On the way back to the bank.
His head sinking low.
He should have known.
How hard did it come?
When was it that you
Lost your soul?
What does it take?
What did they make you?
What do you know?
Well we’ve done it again, again,
Again, now we’ll let you in but,
We should have known.
We should have known

The needles, the space.
That time can’t erase
And buttoned down you’ll get the best of me.
The thrill of it all.
The rise and the fall
And buttoned down you’ll get the best of me.

Now buttoned down, you’ll get the best of me.

Buttoned down, you’ll get the best of me.
