It was the same back then
And it will be again
With the same shady disguise as the last time

You never knew that you would have something to do
With the long arm of the law and the old ones

It was the same back then
You discovered a ten
With a strict night at the school for the new ones

You couldn't tell that you would have something to do
With the dust darkening down for the dead ones

And you headed to the background
Eyes would never look forward
Ten times out of ten now
Things were looking oh but then
Heads were gonna roll down
Quiter than the devotion
I was in the background

It was the same back then
And it happened again
With the new look in the eyes of the old ones

You never knew that you would have something to do
With the long arm of the law and the dead ones

And you headed to the background
Eyes would never look forward
Ten times out of ten now
Things were looking oh but then
Heads were gonna roll here
Quiter than the devotion
I was in the background
Holding on for dear life

And I never decided, but I do know
I never decided, but I do know...
