So it began this way, I can't recall how it got started
So it began this way, I don't recall a thing
And all in all I guess it's for the better
If you don't remember anything, sit and sing
There was a time when everything we did seemed second nature
There was a time when everything we did seemed free
And all in all I guess it's for the better
If you don't remember anything, sit and sing

And I wanted you to know
It was you that we were thinking of as we quietly died in the snow
A place we'd never leave
A place we'd never want to call home
A place we'd call a final resting place in pieces

So we began this way, I don't recall where we got started
And so we end this way no trace of us in spring
All in all, I guess it's for the better if you just can't feel a fucking thing
Fall asleep and die

And I wanted you to know
It was you that we were thinking of as we quietly died in the snow
A place we'd never leave
A place we'd never want to call home
A place we'd call a final resting place in pieces

And I wanted you to know
It was you that we were thinking of as we quietly died in the snow
A place we'd never leave
A place we'd never want to call home
A place we'd call a final resting place in pieces
