Somewhere along the way
My hopefulness turned to sadness
Somewhere along the way
My sadness turned to bitterness
Somewhere along the way
My bitterness turned to anger
Somewhere along the way
My anger turned to vengeance
And the ones that I make pay were never the ones who deserve it
And the ones who deserve it, they'll never understand it.
Yes, I know I'm going to hell in a purple basket
'least I'll be in another world while you're pissing on my casket....

How could you be
(oh-oh-ohh)
so perfect for me
(oh-oh-ohh)
Why can't you ignore
(oh-oh-ohh)
The things I did before
(oh-oh-ohh)

Somewhere along the way
exacting vengence gave excitement
Somewhere along the way
that excitement turned to pleasure
Somewhere along the way
that pleasure turned to madness
But sooner or later that kind of madness turns into pain

And the ones that I made pay were never the ones who deserved it
Those who helped me along the way, I smacked 'em as I thanked 'em
Yes, I know I'm going to hell in a leather jacket
'least I'll be in another world while you're pissing on my casket

All that I can do is sing a song of faded glory
And all you got to is sit there, look great, and make 'em horny
Together we'll sing songs and tell exaggerated stories
About the way we feel today and tonight and in the morning...

How could you be
(oh-oh-ohh)
So perfect for me
(oh-oh-ohh)
Why can't you ignore
(oh-oh-ohh)
The things I did before
(oh-oh-ohh)

Take all your fears
pretend they're all true
Take all your plans
Pretend they fell through
That's what it's like...
(oh-oh-ohh)
That's what it's like for most people in this world
the rich or the poor
(oh-oh-ohh)
Muslims or Jews
(oh-oh-ohh)
when roles are reversed
(oh-oh-ohh)
opinions are too...
(oh-oh-oh)
That's all I'm gonna say now
Before they come knocking on my door
(oh oh ohh)
