Perfect Crime

This song is by Poison Girls.

You try so hard to please the teacher

Play it straight and you toe the line

You try so hard to win their favour

But it's just a bore, a waste of time.

Trapped all day behind a window

Trained to work from nine to five

Taught to feel you're just a number

Forget what it's like to be alive

So you jump the wall and break for freedom

Where the air is fresh and the sky is high

You roam the streets and laugh for pleasure

Remember what it's like to be alive.

I'm biding my time for my perfect crime

I've already done my time

You sit at the back to cheat the teacher

Your body's trapped

And they waste your mind

They've got you now

And they want your future

So you go on the run to steal back some time

And kids from before you can remember

Were chained to their desks,

But what's the crime?

They broke the locks, escaped the numbers

Bunking off to find some pride

So you jump the wall

And break for freedom

Where the air is fresh and the sky is high

You rush the streets like running water

Remember what it's like to be alive

You meet your mates behind the shelter

In the toilets, out of sight

You go where you go so they can't get you

Disobey, it's the basic right

You wanted something from your teachers

Something real that's worth your time

But they let you down,

They taught you failure

So you jump the wall. The Perfect Crime

So you jump the wall

And break for freedom

But where can you go to find your pride

Where can you go for love and laughter

To remember what it's like to be alive
