When it came down I stepped aside
I should have guessed you'd crowd around it
It fits the scene
Steals the moment
Makes you wish that you could save it
Met a man
Who said he'd been there
Told me everything about it
Forgot the names,
Forgot the faces.
Said he'd only kept the wings
It fits okay, a bit too tight
It looks much better on you.
Walk it off.
The chopping block's no place to rest your
Head on fire.
He fight like a tiger.
He look like a car crash
The butcher, the better.
Forgot the names,
Forgot the faces.
Says he only wants to leave.
Always (x3)
I got sucked in and spit it back out again
So what? You're all the same. (x2)

When it came down I'd stepped aside
But then I stopped to think about it
It fits the scene
Steals the moment
Makes you wish that you could save it
Met a man
Who said he'd been there
Told me everything about it
Forgot the names,
Forgot the faces.
Forgot to ask him what it means.
Always (x3)
I got sucked and spit it back out again
So what? You're all the same. (x2)
