The Lyrics

What a strange crime,
Away the family...
Their lives flew by,
Now it's only me.

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha (hi, hi, hi, hi, hi)

Dad was unaware, I used a moving car.
A final conversation, shut my eyes for goodness sake.
My nephew next, I used a timer,
Naturally he died when electrocuted with the phone.
Who really cares, it just 1 life,
Believe me, it wasn't great.
(Take the others before they know)
Oh, ah, oh.

It's a family,
It's a family,
It's a family,
It's a family,
It's a family war.

Goodbye, goodbye,
Goodbye, goodbye,

My aunt deserves a medal, she defeated herself.
I could have known it from the start.
I was going to challenge her straight in the face.
They were born but they will perish,
My uncle's lifespan has run out,
Stuck in the freezer, cold as a stone.
I know that I'm messed up, and what society will do (for sure)
A life to abort, I am capable.
Oh, ah, oh...

Through the peak hole of your door,
The police is here, they'll fail
To arrest me cause they won't make contact
They must wait untill the final act.

chorus x2

I don't want to be, locked up in their van.
Get touched by a lot of hands,
Prisons in Tokyo,
You police girls,
Damn, you ruined my style.


Looking at my watch now,
I will be staying in jail.
The police got in contact,
They said I was wack.

I didn't get a huge laugh, but 555 just for taking on such a pointless OS. Gwen is challenging because of her repetition, so kudos on your pacing for pulling her off. . .I liked her better with No Doubt.
