Everything Went Numb Lyrics

And the story goes like this:
Everything went numb for the money and the guns and
Everytime he'd think it out: there's nothing to worry about.
Get in the van, don't deviate from the plan,
If everything goes smooth then you'll walk away a rich man.
So it begins, everybody walks in,
Could this be the way or the day that the underdog wins?
I think not, so i bet on the feds because the black hat men never win in the end.

Ski mask! (check.)
Sawed off! (check.)
Guilty conscience, fear of death. (check, check, check.)
Everything went numb when he stumbled upon
What he thought was going to be another means to the end.
Silence! Sirens!
It all went down like his nightmare the night before,
I don't want to hear,
I don't want to be near,
I do what I got to do just to keep my nose clean.

The story doesn't end here,
Don't fear for our hero ain't near the end, my friend.
Let's take it back to how it all began:
With a proposition,
And proposition starts with a capital p.
Or at least for me is what he said to himself
But himself ain't a lot when he's got nothing left
Of what was once a man, loved and loving,
He took that trip that turns something to nothing.
Right and wrong,
There's not a lot a difference when you're singing that poor man's song,
And that song it goes just a little like this.

Ski mask! (check.)
Sawed off! (check.)
Guilty conscience, fear of death. (check, check, check.)
Everything went numb when he stumbled upon
What he thought was going to be another means to the end.
Silence! Sirens!
It all went down like his nightmare the night before,
I don't want to hear,
I don't want to be near,
I do what I got to do just to keep my nose clean.
