All the waiters in your grand cafe
Every dog must have his everyday
Don't wait for answers
Don't ask me why
All your life you had to stand in line
All your choices made you change your mind
Don't wait for answers
Don't ask me why
You can say the human heart is only make believe
But you are still a victim
As sure as I'm a victim of desire
All the servants in your new hotel
Fool them all but baby I can tell
Don't ask for favors
Don't ask me why
Yesterday you were an only child
You can kill them in the classic style
Don't look for answers
Don't ask me why
