It's been awhile since we have had some time
What did become of Angel?
He was a useful guy
I've thought about him often and the last time I...

I've got no regrets, you've got to do what you do
In terms of excess, we rewrote the rules
And now I've got a new set of spotless tools

Before we had to lose 'em, it was all struggle and confusion
Can you believe that we used to hold our breath before we excused 'em?

Before we had to lose him, it was all struggle and confusion
Now we've got everything we need

Sometimes I feel a sadness that I can't explain
You've got to work to clear your conscience
I could do it again
I've developed fondness for Vicodin

It's been so good to see you
Let's not do this again
I know you can appreciate discretion
Let's turn our backs and walk in opposite directions
