Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
Sometimes you have to play when you don’t want to
Sometimes you’re right, sometimes you’re wrong
Sometimes you just get taken along

Hey there ma, hey there pa
Looks like I must’ve done something wrong
They put a bag on my head, covered my face
And they haven’t let me sleep in the last five days
They got me chained up against the wall
Punched me in the face and nearly broke my jaw

Remember my old friend Charlie, that psychopath kid
Who tried to bomb the school with that old science kit?
Apparently he’s the reason I’m stuck in here now
I haven’t seen him in years and wouldn’t even know how
But he said my name when they got him in Spain
So they busted down my door, hauled my ass away
