lyrics

You don't know how to start, not sure you have the heart,
'Improve' or 'to destroy' in equal measures vie.
Sick thoughts and screaming flesh, mendacious epithets -
But nothing ever goes the way it's meant to go.

No, nothing ever goes the way it's meant to go.

A raven flame expired, all plans now on the pyre,
Ink smears a spiteful smudge, conceals your fervent grudge.
Your call to action came but faltered on the blame,
And nothing ever goes the way it's meant to go.

No, nothing ever goes the way it's meant to go.

And we descend into shame, when we see that we
Are the ones who must take all the blame.
(Nothing ever goes the way it's meant to go,
You don't want to see, you don't want to know,
Nothing in the world would ever shake you more,
Nothing ever goes the way it's meant to go)

A painful vanity and psychosurgery,
Soon madness seems to be a safe divergency.
You don't know how to stop, not sure you want to stop,
But nothing ever goes the way it's meant to go.

No, nothing ever goes the way it's meant to go.

And we descend into shame, when we see that we
Are the ones who must take all the blame.
(Nothing ever goes the way it's meant to go,
You don't want to see, you don't want to know,
Nothing in the world would ever shake you more,
Nothing ever goes the way it's meant to go)
