lyrics

Let’s try to end on a pleasant note
You’ve ended endless things, and you know how it goes
You lick your wounds, put them in a jar on a 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, you’ve beaten everyone
I think it’s fair to say 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
So you know the drill
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 calm
First grade fourth place standing broad jump
Violent and velvet painting, slaughtering an ego taming
You clocked a thousand hours baby, you can master all of them

You can take an everlasting love and you can have it
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 everyone
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

Jai guru deva om
Yeah, you’ve really got this death thing down
