Yeah, you know I did it
It's over and I feel fine
Nothing you can say is gonna change my mind
Waited, and I wait at the longest night
Nothing like the taste of sweet decline

I went down and I fell, I fell so fast
Dropping like the grains in an hour glass
Never say forever 'cause nothing lasts
Dancing with the bones of my buried past

Never mind there's nothing I could do
Bet your life there's something killing you.

It's a shame we have to die my dear
No-one's getting out of here alive
This time
What a way to go but have no fear
No-one's getting out of here alive
This time

I'm finished, I'm getting you off my chest
Nature come clean in a dirty dress
A promise is a promise you kept in check
Hard to cross a heart that beats it's fist

Take a good hard look for the very last time
The very last one in a very long line.
Only took a second to say goodbye
Been a pleasure, but the pleasure's been mine all mine

Never mind there's nothing I could do
Bet your life there's something killing you.

It's a shame we have to die my dear
No-one's getting out of here alive
This time
What a way to go but have no fear
No-one's getting out of here alive
This time

Ain't no way
D. O. A
Ain't no way
D. O. A

Take a good hard look for the very last time
The very last one in a very long line
Only took a second to say goodbye
Been a pleasure, but the pleasure's been mine all mine

Never mind there's nothing I could do
Bet your life there's something killing you.

It's a shame we have to die my dear
No-one's getting out of here alive
This time
What a way to go but have no fear
No-one's getting out of here alive
This time

It's a shame we have to disappear
No-one's getting out of here alive
This time
This time
This Time

    I feel this song is about a relationship that has gone bad. This is due to the realization that she was not the one for him. She broke his heart and now he is wanting saying goodbye. He now sees all her lies and flaws that he was once oblivious to. The relationship is basically killing him and both of them will leave feeling dead inside. So, neither one of them make it out alive.
