Lyrics

The torture doctor is in
Back here to confess his sins
Knowing damn well he was dead wrong
And I can’t believe my eyes
Trouble and regret haunt my mind
I’ll let you take the whole thing down
Brick by brick tonight

And there’s a devil dancing in my head
As I’m hovering above your bed

Hey Ho We know how this story goes.
Hey Ho The plot it thickens and grows.
Hey Ho There’s nothing left to hide.
Hey Ho Down here on the South Side.

I was the worst of my kind
I left my own life behind
Can’t believe I got away with it so long
At the end of the day
There is nothing to say
So tired of being wired wrong, all my life

And there’s a devil dancing in my head
As I’m hovering above your bed

Hey Ho - We know how this story goes
Hey Ho - The plot it thickens and grows
Hey Ho - There’s nothing left to hide
Hey Ho - Down here on the South Side
Down on the South Side.

Hey Ho - We know how this story goes
Hey Ho - The plot it thickens and grows
Hey Ho - There’s nothing left to hide
Hey Ho - Down here on the south side
Down on the South side
