Lyrics

What it was wasn't my fault
If I would have known, but
Who could have known?
The cameras and the kids
The candids and the kindling
We're fighting them all
They've done it again

What do her friends say?
Who was involved?
I'll call it all off
'Cause I should have known but
Who could have known?
Who could have known?

The needles, the space that time can't erase
And buttoned down you'll get the best of me
The thrill of it all, the rise and the fall
And buttoned down you'll get the best of me

On the way back to the bank
His head sinking low
He should have known

How hard did it come?
When was it that you lost your soul?
What does it take?
What did they make you?
What do you know?

Well we've done it again, again, again
Now we'll let you in but
We should have known
We should have known

The needles, the space that time can't erase
And buttoned down you'll get the best of me
The thrill of it all, the rise and the fall
And buttoned down you'll get the best of me

Now buttoned down you'll get the best of me
Buttoned down, you'll get the best of me
