The Family Plot (live) (2:09)
If today's misfortune is tomorrow's excuse
Then there's something coming that you can put to use
And it ends and it ends and my heart takes a beating again
Think it's not in the cards or the charms on your arms?
You won't know until you know though it's so predictable
The emptiness can't be erased, everyone will be replaced
And you'll make the call that I made, won't you?
The years lose numbers when the days lose names
And the understudy is thrown up on the stage
And it ends without end and our hearts take a beating again
Do we forget our lines? Plagiarize their lives?
The plot's known but hard to follow
Their absence can't be erased, everyone will be replaced
And you'll make the call that I made, thinking:
"You.... you won't go."
