(Jakob Dylan)

Never thought that I knew too much
Always thought I knew enough
Why do you act tough?
Well maybe I'm just losing my touch
And where do we go?
They keep us on the run
But how could we know?
We'd only just begun

But look what we've done
They knew it all along
That our chances were none
In murder one by one

And do you still have that dream
Where two lovers play hide and seek?
Why would you find it
Beneath the secrets that I keep?
So why do we lie
And keep it all inside
When love is implied
And the heart just goes denied?

And look what we've done
They knew it all along
They're in love with no one
They murder one by one

Tie you up with just one thread
And seal you in baby's breath
And beneath your chest/ is a heart that needs a rest
But I won't let you fall
They keep us here in line
Like two paper dolls
Her little hand in mine

And look what we've done
They knew it all along
That our chances were none
In murder one by one
