Criminal

This song is by John Doe and appears on the album For The Best Of Us (2006).

Crawling down
An innocent
Sweeping up the hall
Creeping like a swee-pea
Nightgown like a baby
Head in her mother's hand
Dripping into sleep
Breathing a familiar smell
Filling her full of her sweetheart beat
Who are the hostages
Never let go
So many prisoners
See it on their backs wherever they go

Growing up a criminal
With eyes that always fall
Living in an age of hate
Denying it all
Clinking sounds of bottles
Rising from the street
Hearing a familiar sound
Reminding him of his sweetheart's sweet heart beat
This may never go away
Haunting him for life
So sad in iron bars
See it in his eyes wherever he goes
See it in his eyes wherever he goes

I have been a prisoner in heaven and hell
That may change hourly
But what's on my back is forever & ever
But what's on my back is forever & ever
