lyrics

CRIMINAL

take a breath like a criminal and try to meet your eye
i'm a dead man buying time
you look at me like a winnower
for truth among the lies
you left your question dangling naked in the sky

anyone can talk it's easy to do
talk of love, but can you give me proof?

come at me like a cannonball
aimed right between the eys
gasoline thrown on a fire
and i feel like a silhouette caught stealing in the light
you push me up against the wall and ask me what's inside

anyone can talk it's easy to do
anyone would say we're lost sometimes
anyone would say we're lost sometimes

take a pull on a cigarette and walk into the night
i'd turn to salt if i looked back
and i feel like a widower burying his wife
who do you mourn when she's the one who's dressing you in black?

anyone would say we're lost sometimes
anyone would say we're lost sometimes
anyone would say we're lost sometimes
