Down on the other side of things
The triggers fast and light
Bringing home this emptiness
For which you had to fight
It doesn't matter if you're giving
For they do not compromise
The world will keep you guessing
Until the day you die

And everyone will say, "I told you so"
Yeah, they'll all just nod and sigh
But I'll make a run at something real
And they'll never even try
And everyone will say, "I told you so"
Yeah, they'll all just nod and sigh
As I go down in a ball of flames
They'll just watch, I wonder why

When the people downtown are freezing
Sometimes you cannot hide
So what can you do, it's often true
That we shift away our eyes
But maybe that moment's ours to live
And maybe that's what we were for
As fate will share a chance with you
To open up your door

And everyone will say, "I told you so"
Yeah, they'll all just nod and sigh
But I'll make a run at something real
And they'll never even try
And everyone will say, "I told you so"
Yeah, they'll all just nod and sigh
As I go down in a ball of flames
They'll just watch, I wonder why

I don't understand
Why you're just standing there
I don't understand
Why you don't seem to care

And everyone will say, "I told you so"
Yeah, they'll all just nod and sigh
But I'll make a run at something real
And they'll never even try
And everyone will say, "I told you so"
Yeah, they'll all just nod and sigh
As I go down in a ball of flames
They'll just watch, I wonder why

And everyone will say, "I told you so"
They'll all just nod and sigh
But I made a run at something real
And they never even tried
And everyone will say, "I told you so"
Yeah, they'll all just nod and sigh
And tell me where I made my big mistake
They may just be surprised
