Let's try to end on a pleasant note
You've ended endless things and you how it goes
You'd lick your wounds but they're in a jar on the shelf
You lick a stamp on a letter to your old self
You always liked being good at things, didn't you
Isn't it funny what a person can get used to

And now, just look what you've done
I hope you're happy cause you've beaten everyone
I think it's fair to say that the word is all over town

Did he answer? (No)
Did he answer? (No)
Did he answer? (No)
Not even a whisper? (No)
So it's over? (Yes)
Now you know the drill
You're the expert
You're the expert
You're the expert
You're the expert

Congratulations, you've really got this death thing down

You're really good at making introverted people come
First grade, fourth place, standing [?]
Violent and velvet painting
Slaughtering and ego-taming
You clocked one-thousand hours, baby
You could master all of them
You can take your everlasting love and you can have it
Though you don't always get to pick what you get good at

Now, look how far you've come
You used to need them
And now you could lose every one
Without even blinking an eye
So go on, put on your crown

Did she answer? (No)
Did she answer? (No)
Did she answer? (No)
Not a single heartbeat? (No)
So it's over? (Yes)
So you know the drill
You're the expert

Congratulations, you've really got this death thing down
You've really got this death thing down
You've really got this death thing down
You've really got this death thing down
You've really got this death thing down

Jai Guru Deva
Om

Yeah, you've really got this death thing down
