I'll never trust anyone again, that's for sure but at least I've lived, and that's more than you can say
Don't be hasty, what are you, crazy?
And with a look in his eyes he said,
"Well, maybe. But just you wait, one day you'll see me again."

The first day was a sad one, dead flowers and a plastic funeral
there was in corner looking bored
He was tearless in his eyes, and his feet flat on the floor
so he laughed and shut the door

You don't know what you've gotten yourself into
Nor do you care
That all will change, just watch and wait
The way that things work now aren't how they're gonna be
But let me tell you they'll tear you apart

The next day was a strange one, grave robbers they were never to be found
a missing body and it wasn't in the ground
And the man began to sweat, he hadn't paid off all his debts
to the man buried underground
How could it be? Myself i've seen the thoughts they traveled through his skull
and come out on the other side
How could it be? Myself i've seen the thoughts they traveled through his skull
and come out on the other side

You don't know what you've gotten yourself into
Nor do you care
That all will change, just watch and wait
The way that things work now aren't how they're gonna be
But let me tell you they'll tear you apart

Another day another triumph said the man, just like every time before
until he realized the fact that, the missing body was at his door
Forget goodbyes!
You have no time!

The missing body was finally found, they put the body back underground
And this time they knew that he was dead, they couldn't find the body's head well
I'd like to say that I turned it in, just to give the story a little extra spin
Oh baby baby, they'll never know my master plan or the way things go
The way things go...
The way things go...
The way things go...
The way things go!
