Sometimes it's good to be a killer,
And work without remorse,
Sometimes it's good to be heartless,
And let nature take it's course.

And I don't need tender mercy,
Just someone on my side,
I'll leave the gentle things behind,
I'll leave the gentle things behind.

Sometimes the guide light is flickering,
And the theme lost in the swell,
Sometimes you have to live without it,
And let the hearts lie still.

And I don't need tender mercy,
To tie me to the mast,
I'll let that tenderness go past,
I'll let that tenderness go past.

Don't want closer,
Don't want nice,
Love is a lonely ghost,
All through my life.
