Song lyrics
And the story goes like this everything went numb for the money and the guns
And everytime he'd think it out: there's nothing to worry about
Get in the van, don't deviate from the plan
If everything goes smooth then you'll walk away a rich man
So it begins, everybody walks in
Could this be the way or the day that the underdog wins?
I think not, so I bet on the feds because the black hat men never win in the end

Soooooooooo......

Ski mask (check)
Sawed off (check)
Guilty conscience, fear of death (check check check)
Everything went numb when he stumbled upon what he thought
Was going to be another means to the end
The silence
The sirens
It all went down like his nightmare the night before
I don't want to hear
I don't want to be near
I do what I got to do just to keep my nose clean

The story doesn't end here
Don't fear for our hero ain't near the end
My friend
Let's take it back to how it all began: with a proposition
And proposition starts with a capital P
Or at least for me is what he said to himself
But himself ain't a lot when he's got nothing left
Of what was once a man, loved and loving
He took that trip that turns something to nothing
Right and wrong
There's not a lot a difference when you're singing that poor man's song
And that song it goes just a little like this:

Na na na...

Ski mask (check)
Sawed off (check)
Guilty conscience, fear of death (check check check)
Everything went numb when he stumbled upon what he thought
Was going to be another means to the end
The silence
The sirens
It all went down like his nightmare the night before
I don't want to hear
I don't want to be near
I do what I got to do just to keep my nose clean
