lyrics

Step aside, boy. You've had your last chance,
and only taken every second that she gave you for granted.
You see, this little Betty, she's got daggers for you
to repay all of the pain that you have put her through.
So sit back, relax, and watch in horror
as your life quickly falls apart,
and watch as it's taken away
by the one person you were jealous of from the start,

and we can watch this fire burn... I've got a great view.
And I can show you what it means to yearn,
this feeling's nothing new.
It seems that this time,
maybe karma's finally coming to collect it's due.
You stole her away from me once, well guess what, boy?
Now I'm stealing her away from you.

There's no use crying over the things you can't control.
There's no use worrying about the things you'll never know.
So sit back, relax, and watch
as your entire world comes crashing down.
You once told me, "Nice guys finish last."
Well I ask you... who is laughing now?

and we can watch this fire burn... I've got a great view.
And I can show you what it means to yearn,
this feeling's nothing new.
It seems that this time,
maybe karma's finally coming to collect it's due.
You stole her away from me once, well guess what, boy?
Now I'm stealing her away from you.

You want something that she simply can't deliver,
so bow your head down now.
The war is over, you have lost.
You may have gained your freedom, but at what cost?
So surrender... make it easy on yourself and us...
