lyrics

i've made enough lousy shots in my time
to know what i'm aiming for
but just because my eye is on the target
don't mean this time i'll score

i might start seeing spots
and now suddenly i'm not as sharp a marksman as i thought

the doctor says enough is enough
modern medicine won't make me grow up
and she don't mean to be too unkind
but she'd be wasting her time if she even tried

i tried my best to fall on my sword
and keep you safe from harm
but i was so focused on sticking my landing
i didn't notice you'd lost an arm

and i'll swear that i meant well
but what difference do intentions make if i still put you through hell

the doctor says that she'll do her best
but modern medicine won't clean up my mess
and all the king's horses and all the king's troops
won't make my fucking dreams come true
