Well here we are again
It's always such a pleasure
Remember when you tried to kill me twice?
Oh how we laughed and laughed
Except I wasn't laughing

Under the circumstances
I've been shockingly nice


You want your freedom? Take it
That's what I'm counting on
I used to want you dead
But now I only want you gone


She was a lot like you
Maybe not quite as heavy
Now little Caroline is in here too
One day they woke me up
So I could live forever

It's such a shame the same
Will never happen to you


You've got your short sad life left
That's what I'm counting on
I'll let you get right to it
Now I only want you gone


Goodbye my only friend
Oh, did you think I meant you?
That would be funny
If it weren't so sad

Well you have been replaced
I don't need anyone now
When I delete you maybe
I'll stop feeling so bad

Go make some new disaster
That's what I'm counting on
You're someone else's problem
Now I only want you gone
Now I only want you gone
Now I only want you gone
