We watched it all in disbelief at the train station on Christmas Eve.
A tragic tale; a gruesome scene; a bitter end for the Chief of Police.

It was a blessing and a curse. Don't get me wrong, it could be worse.
When you wake to find the Devil where you sleep;
Sounds like you got your money's worth.

Turns out the Chief was on the take. He battled demons no honest man could shake.
They made demands he could not fulfill. The he got caught with his hand in the till.

It was a blessing and a curse. Don't get me wrong, it could be worse.
When it all comes crashing down around your feet;
Will you say you got your money's worth?

That's when the Chief came stumbling in with a half-empty bottle of gin.
The whistle blew; the shot rang out; the bottle shattered as his body hit the ground.

It was a blessing and a curse. Don't get me wrong, it could be worse.
If there's a lesson to be learned, he played with fire and he got burned.
And when it all comes crumbling down into the sea;
I'll say I got my money's worth.
