lyrics

NOW I HEARD THERE WAS A PERFECT CRIME
WHERE VILLAINS DONNED THE IDEAL DISGUISE
AND KEPT THEIR DEATHBED PROMISES
TO ALL THEIR LAST ACCOMPLICES
I HEARD THERE WAS A PERFECT CRIME
WHERE FORTUNE, PLANS AND GUTS ALIGNED
AND THE DARING DUO UNDER COVERS
WHISPERED JUST BEFORE THE END
“LOOK AT US – WE GOT AWAY WITH IT”

WE GOT AWAY WITH IT

I HEARD THERE WAS A PERFECT CRIME
BUT AS IT IS I FEAR I’LL NEVER SEE ONE IN MY TIME
THEY LOSE THEIR NERVE, DON’T HAVE THE HEART
OR IT’S BADLY ORCHESTRATED FROM THE START
I HEARD THERE WAS THE PERFECT CRIME
WHERE NO ON GOT LAZY, DISTRACTED OR HIGH
WHERE GUILT AND REPENTANCE REMAINED A VAPOUR
NO GREED OR DESIRE TO TOP THE LAST CAPER
THAT’S HOW YOU GET AWAY WITH IT

THAT’S HOW YOU GET AWAY WITH IT

ONE CUT, GUSHES BLOOD
LEAVES A STAIN THAT GETS THE JOB UNDONE
HOW HARD CAN IT BE
KEEPING YOUR HANDS CLEAN
AND YOUR MOUTH SHUT?
HOW MANY TIMES IN THE MOMENT’S RUSH
HAVE I THOUGHT, “YES, THIS ONE’S GOT THE GENIUS’?
POOR SOULS, CAN’T YOU SEE?
DECEPTION IS ITS OWN HONESTY
