When they find you in the back bay
Bits and pieces in the back bay
No one asks "Is this a war?"
Lace your boots and go to war

Set the shot, I put my gun away
Do the work, I throw my gun away
Don't question anymore
Not burdened anymore
I weigh the world on a sliding scale, and I
Wouldn't worry if heads or tails decides
We're all strapped to the spinning wheel
And there's a blindfolded man in a tux throwing knives

There's no why

In the pulpit, in the alleyway
In the bear pit out at Heaven's Gate
It's not a culture, it's a cult
Not a circle, it's a hole

I used to think it'd all come back again
Less an issue of "if" than "where" or "when"
Life, looping & infinite
I was protecting myself
Once it's finished, it's finished

There's no why

Iron and ink
Oil and oxygen
The trick of the trick:
We're who we've always been

There's no why
