Story behind the song
I wrote this a couple of years ago as an Elvis-Costello kind of lyric. I posted it on a music collaboration site and Ray grabbed it and turned it into a heavy metal song. It certainly works for the material.
Lyrics
(v1) Don’t know why I didn’t learn my lesson The first or second or third time around You draw me back, with passion and aggression Only to hear That old familiar sound Of frustration Harsh accusation Making me unsure Well, punch my ticket And I’ll be out the door (v2) Seems to me I’ve done this already Got a bad case of déjà vu I return and you throw confetti Wait a month and You throw your high-heeled shoe At the curtain Feeling so certain I’ll be back for more Well, punch my ticket Glad you’re keeping score (chorus) Punch my ticket You’re not what I dreamed Punch my ticket one more time Maybe this time I’ll get redeemed (musical interlude) (bridge) I’ll come back you’ll punch it again When I’ve paid your fee What do I get when I get to ten Do you break my heart for free? (v3) Why do I insist on returning After being blamed and abused When I think I’m finally learning You snap your fingers Making me confused And conflicted Highly addicted Hoping for a cure Well, punch my ticket (It’s) what I’m back here for (chorus) Punch my ticket You’re not what I dreamed Punch my ticket one more time Maybe this time I’ll get redeemed
