  • Somewhere along the way, my hopefulness turned to sadness
    Somewhere along the way, my sadness turned to bitterness
    Somewhere along the way, my bitterness turned to anger
    Somewhere along the way, my anger turned to vengeance

    And the ones that I made pay were never the ones who deserved it
    And the ones who deserved it, they'll never understand it
    Yes, I know I'm going to Hell in a leather jacket
    Least I'll be in another world while you're pissing on my casket

    How could you be, oh
    So perfect for me?
    Why can't you ignore, oh
    The things I did before?

    Somewhere along the way, exacting vengeance gave excitement
    Somewhere along the way, that excitement turned to pleasure
    Somewhere along the way, that pleasure turned to madness
    But sooner or later that kind of madness turns into pain

    And the ones that I made pay were never the ones who deserved it
    Those who helped me along the way, I smacked 'em as I thanked 'em
    Yes, I know I'm going to Hell in a leather jacket
    'Least I'll be in another world while you're pissing on my casket

    And all that I can do is sing a song of faded glory
    And all you got to do is sit there, look great, and make 'em horny
    Together we'll sing songs and tell exaggerated stories
    About the way we feel today and tonight and in the morning

    How could you be, oh
    So perfect for me?
    Why can't you ignore, oh
    The things I did before?

    Take all your fears, pretend they're all true
    Take all your plans, pretend they fell through
    But that's what it's like

    That's what it's like for most people in this world
    The rich or the poor oh
    Muslims or Jews oh
    When roles are reversed oh
    Opinions are too
    No, oh oh

    That's all I'm gonna say now
    Before they come knocking on my door now Writer/s: Julian Casablancas
