I’ll take a rock from a hard place and smash the nearest mirror
toGuarantee some hard luck for myself for seven more years

What goes around never comes around, unless it’s coming down on me
(its coming down) so why do such bad things happen to good people?
As fate would have it I just thought karma was more simple than that

So when you’re face down scowling in the shallow puddle drowning; don’t
look to deeply for rhyme or reason; because what I’ve learned so far is that the evil still get lucky no matter how disgusting they are.

(chorus)

Bottoms up, we all get down.

Your adulterous mommies and neglectful daddies make a fortune and a mockery of life, love and family; while the lonely good Samaritan falls in love with his rain cloud.

(chorus)

I just thought karma was more simple than that.
