Say what you want but I guess I had it coming
Sold me a dream and a lie that kept me running
Out of the fire into the soulless heart of the city
screaming out for justice

I was the lover that she never wanted she was the
headache that I never needed
Born in the city summer nights in wonder lost in the
glory then she turned me over

Here's to the magic here's to the blindness,
Here's to the mayhem trail left behind us
I no one's hero, she no one's princess,
Danced like a fire, burning in the darkness
I saw the end come before the beginning,
Magic and mayhem, love kept us spinning

My finest hour, her longest nightmare,
Days turned to minutes, luck strung me out there
Locked in the silence, thrown out in the thunder,
Drowned in the lust and defeated in the wonder,
I took what I could nobody could fault me, bastards
and thieves done everything to warn me
She took my wits and all that she could carry
Stole half my voice and locked it where I don't see

Here's to the moment here's to the worst night
Here's to the broken electric moonlight
She was the punchline I was the bad joke,
Under the stars her thick promises broke
I saw the end come before the beginning,
Magic and mayhem just keeps on winning

Restlessly, helplessly stranded stranded where I used to be
Our nights had changed, drowned in fire,
Frozen with a fool's desire
Say something, say something, say what you want
But it's all crashing down on me

Here's to the magic here's to the blindness,
Here's to the mayhem trail left behind us
I no one's hero, she no one's princess,
Danced like a fire, burning in the darkness
I saw the end come before the beginning,
Magic and mayhem just keeps on winning
Once imitated never forgotten, restlessly fated
and misbegotten

Here's to the moment here's to the worst night
Here's to the broken electric moonlight
I no one's hero, she no one's princess,
Danced like a fire, burning in the darkness
I saw the end before the beginning,
Magic and mayhem, love kept us spinning
