how it’s going to be lyrics – the parlor mob

“how it’s going to be”

i can’t help picking up these bones
i’m just a sucker for the pain
when i see them lying there alone
i just can”t leave them in the rain

we need a different way to speak
so i might never use my tongue
i know the comforts that you seek
and i see what you’ll become
i’m going to cut you like a tree
so be ready for it

if this is how it’s going to be, then i will never be someone,
but it doesn’t matter to me
if this is how it’s going to be, then i will never be someone,
but it doesn’t matter, no, it doesn’t matter to me

i’m going to shoot you if you run
they’ll find you in a shallow grave
and when the day and deed is done
the attention that you crave
will not seem so very fun
so prepare for it

[chorus]

i’m going to shoot you if you run
and i’m going to cut you like a tree
and i’ll be your savior with a gun
if this is how it’s going to be
