Lies and betrayals, fruit-covered nails
Electricity and lust won't break the door
I've got a heavy coat
It's filled with rocks and sand
And if I lose you
I'll be coming back today
(I got a message for you)
I'll be coming back today
(I keep it in my hand)
You know I'm coming back one day
(I've got a sister or two)
And I'll be coming back today
Ex-magician still knows the tricks
Tricks are everything to me until it's free
I've got a trigger cut
And I can't pull it back
But if I learn how
I'll be coming back today
(I got a message for you)
You know I'm coming back today
(I keep it in my hand)
And you will look at me and say
(I've got a sister to you)
That you just wish I went away
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
I learned the truth, the truth of the words
Truth I made for you because it's just as good
And if I spit it out
Before I chew the ring
I'll rearrange it
Till it looks just right today
(I got a message for you)
And I'll be coming back my way
(I keep it in my hand)
And you will look at me and say
(I've got a sister or two)
That you just wish I went away today
Owhoo sha-la-la-la-la ...
