You said you'd give me love
Instead you caused me pain
You made me curse and slam the door
And hang my head in shame

But, it's over now, it's over now

You talked to me of virtue
And sang a song so sweet
All I know is I could smell
The perfume of deceit

It's over now, it's over now

You told me of your innocence
And I believed it all
But your best friend is your vanity
And the mirror on the wall

It's over now

I turned away from what I heard
And everything I saw
Now I see the light of day
I release the dog of war

So whatcha gonna do
When the truth pays you a call?
How you gonna feel
When you finally lose it all?

How you gonna look
Standing up against the wall
Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna say
When you feel the hammer fall?
I'm gonna see you crawl

You took your pills and washed them down
And then you talked for hours
I tried to build a garden
But you trampled all the flowers

And it's over now

Wanting this, needing that
Always after more, now that it's all over
I release the dog of war
I release the dog of war

So whatcha gonna do
When the truth pays you a call?

How you gonna look
Standing up against the wall?

Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna say
When you feel the hammer fall?

Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna say
Standing up against the wall?

So whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna say
Mamma, when you feel the hammer fall?
So whatcha gonna do?
