In the back of my mind a voice speaks
Spells out the master plan
Now I know
She swings with the ease of a hammer

From the truth down to the past
And I know
What's right, went wrong
From when it started

To this the finish
I'll try to find
A place in your new life
To set the fire

And cover your tracks
Time will tell, the past laughs last
Syllables will try and judge you
Will pierce the anecdote

Now I know
Your plea is a case of reason
And this deletes your alibi
And I know

Once tried, left wrong
From where it started, to here the finish
I'll try to find
A place in your new life

The traps have been set
And this will change everything

    General CommentI think this was written when his girlfriend broke up with him due to everything that built up to that point. It sounds like he wanted to overlook things that had happened in the past, but the past came back to haunt him.

    There were only two errors I spotted in the above lyrics.
    1. From the truth down "through" the past
    2. Will pierce "this" anecdote

    Lyrics -
    In the back of my mind a voice speaks
    spells out the master plan
    now I know
    she swings with the ease of a hammer
    from the truth down through the past
    and I know

    What's right, went wrong
    from when it started
    to this the finish
    I'll try to find
    a place in your new life....
    To set the fire
    and cover your tracks
    Time will tell, the past laughs last

    syllables will try and judge you
    will pierce this anecdote
    now I know
    your plea is a case of reason
    and this deletes your alibi
    and I know

    once tried, left wrong
    from where it started, to here the finish
    I'll try to find
    a place in your new life

    The traps have been set
    and this will change everything
