Kickin' back in the shadows
Got no need for the light
Who's sorry now old timer
Look at how you've spent your life

Scroungin' for change
To put some money in your pocket
My how scratch does burn
Laughin' at the suckers as you pissed it away

But I got the time and I got the muscle
I got the need to lay it all on the line
I ain't afraid of your smoke screen hustle

It's a perfect crime
Goddamn it, it's a perfect crime
Motherfucker, it's a perfect crime
I said it's perfect

Keep the demons down and drag the skeletons out
I got a blind man followin' me in chains
I said he's fun to watch when the world has stopped
And I think he's got somethin' to say

"You wanna fuck with me?
Don't fuck with me.
'Cause I'm what you'll be
So don't fuck with me
If you had better sense
You'd step aside from the bad side of me.

Don't fuck with the bad side of me
Stay away from the bad side of me
Don't fuck with the bad side"

T-minus 1:09 and counting

Ostracized but that's all right
I was thinkin' about somethin' myself

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8

Call on everybody who's got last rites
Said it's better if you locked 'em away
Runnin' through the visions at the speed of light

Won't ya let me be
Motherfucker, just let me be
Goddamn it, better let me be
Don't ya know ya better let me be

Perfect crime
Goddamn it, it's a perfect crime
Motherfucker, it's a perfect crime
Don'tcha know it's a perfect crime
