Arson, You Let Me Down

lyrics

I'm gonna tell ya what I know
The ladies come and go
But the ebb and the flow
It's a shame and a drag
A doe vs. a stag
It's a shame and a drag
It's a bummer of a scheme
But the roaches and the rats
Were less effective than they seemed
It's a shame and a drag
Shame and a drag
Shame and a drag

When you set the fire (You set the fire, you set the fire)
You were a star
In your mind
A hero to the cause
Out of time
And outside the laws
Sabotage
Shoulda gave us pause

I'm gonna tell ya what I know
The ladies come and go
But the ebb and the flow
It's a shame and a drag
A doe vs. a stag
It's a shame and a drag
It's a bummer of a scheme
But the roaches and the rats
Were less effective than they seemed
It's a shame and a drag
Shame and a drag
Shame and a drag

When they took you in (they took you in, they took you in)
I washed my hands
Of your mind
Your manifestos and plans
Undefined
But still acted upon
Our king resigned
Our enemies have won

(You let me down, you let me down)
You said you kicked the matches
(You let me down, you let me down)
Authority dispatches
(You let me down, you let me down)
My sympathy detaches
My arsonist, you let me down

It's a shame and a drag, a shame and a drag, a shame and a drag, a shame and a drag...

(You let me down, you let me down)
You said you kicked the matches
(You let me down, you let me down)
Authority dispatches
(You let me down, you let me down)
My sympathy detaches
My arsonist, you let me down

One, two, three, four
