Gone Again Gone

I must've gone 5,555 miles
Just to gauge the corners of your mouth when you smile
Now I sit here by the fire
Wondering out loud:
    Did the force that we created shatter helpless on the shoreline?
    Did the mud between our toes really dry up all that quickly?
    Could the lava of our love freeze up in the warm summer dawn?

And it did not work out for us just like we planned
So I'm (he's) gone
And it did not work out for us just like we planned
Gone again gone (x2)

Well I knew a gifted man
Stayed 16 all his days
A dry and dark romantic
Who vanished in the haze
    And he stood all tall and saintly with his Perry Mason poems
    And his customized spirit, chuckling sly and quiet, mumbling
    And we all leaned in to listen to his solid gold instructions
    Then he got up from the party and left us all alone without his song

And it did not work out for us just like we planned
So I'm gone
And it did not work out for us just like we planned
So I'm gone
And it did not work out for us just like we planned
Gone again gone (x3)

Let's go

There was a preacher with a weakness
For lurking late at night
He found an evil congregation
Squinting in the moonlight
    And all the pickle-hearted sinners had all lined up for the winnings
    And the devil came and every evil deed he'd ever attempted
    And a train made of solid gold came rumbling to the station
    And conductors full of promises whistled for the sinners to get on
We had to get on

And it did not work out for us just like we planned
So I'm gone
And it did not work out for us just like we planned
So he's gone
And it did not work out for us just like we planned
So he's gone
Gone again gone (x17)
