He crept up those crooked stairs with a pistol shoved into his pants. He looked and saw the woman kiss the man. He lit ‘em up and blew them away. This is the privilege of a criminal life! Now he knows for sure that it was the truth that he was told. Whatever it was the bastard did the bastard knows. This is the privilege of a criminal life! What’s done is done. He can never get it back. He’s gonna stand there till the authorities attack. This is the privilege of a criminal life!  He says “come on!” He says “come on!” Why are you waiting? What are you waiting for?” This is the privilege of a criminal life!

You know what to do. You know what to do. You know. I know. You know. You know. I know. You Know . I know. I know. You know what to do. You know what to do. And I know that you know. And I know that you know. And you know that I know. And you know that I know. How bout we invite ourselves to invite ourselves to invite ourselves? You know what to do. You know what to do. And I know that you know that I know. And you know that I know that you know. You know what to do.

While we are sleeping  Mannequins make clothes to wear  For their big night out

Here is something to show you. It’s a peculiar thing. If you can’t trust the pictures do you know what you think? Hold the remainder of your chosen condition. Just like they do in long division. If a taste in the air reminds you that you’re not there. Do you know what you’re made of till you see it outside? They say believe so just believe. They think they know their “Master”well. To say the least.  They cry “Oh Lord keep us on your leash. Oh Lord keep us safe at least. From the Beast. From the Beast.” There’s a place in the center with features familiar. Two eyes look right through you. They seem to know you and say: “You think you’ve got it bad, how’d you like to live your life on a wall?” If you don’t want to know that, don’t push the blinds. It’s a doorway. It’s a painting you’ll enter. It’s a painting. Just a painting. It can’t end well. It might end well. If you had a replacement could you trace and compare? You should face down the faker and end it right there. Oh well  Oh well  Oh well Oh

You look to be a little out of phase. Where do you need to be to get back in the race? It won’t be long before you know it. Your fate will change its shape. It won’t be long before you know it. You’ll be standing right there. Come on now and get behind the wheel or you’re bound to lose control. Come on now get back up on that wheel. When you’re moving you’ll know. You head out all alone with nothing but your memories. Souvenirs and trinkets no one else can see. They won’t amount to nothing when there’s nothing left to be. Come on now and get behind the wheel or you’re bound to lose control. Come on now get back up on that wheel. When you’re moving you’ll know. They said not to worry there’s one thing you’re never see. The last time you heard that they said it was never. You said “why’d you say that.” They said “don’t you worry.” You said “now I’m worried. Now I’m worried.” Come on now and get behind the wheel or your bound to lose control. Come on now get back up on that wheel. When you’re moving you’ll know. Now you’re rounder than a wheel. Rounder than a wheel.

Civilization will grind to a halt and it’s all your fault.

All the days that I witnessed were beyond belief. They slept in the doorway of ignorance and grief. Some of them left the outside. Some of them went back in. All the words, the the only thing that they could ever sing was. “Bbbbbbrrrrrrrbbbbrrrrrbbbbb!” Some of their faces faced me. Faces to the left and the right. Pinched inside like a fist Never could get out of sight. They wondered who was with them there and should they watch their backs. The whole time I was singing, singing to myself: “ I could’ve been somewhere else had I known. Had I listened. I could’ve been somewhere else had I known about this shit. I could’ve been somewhere else. I was afraid of never ever leaving. I could’ve been somewhere else. I could’ve been somewhere else.” All I heard was “Bbbbbbrrrrrrrbbbbrrrrrbbbbb!” If I do not fail I’ll get the report just right. I’ll send it in the mail. It might get there by Friday night. Save my face for me. It needs a place to be. Leave my face with me. I need my face. I need a face. “ I could’ve been somewhere else had I known. Had I listened. I could’ve been somewhere else had I known about this shit. I could’ve been somewhere else. I was afraid of never ever leaving. I could’ve been somewhere else. I could’ve been somewhere else.” It was so nice to leave. That’s no place to be. And that is why I’ll never never go back. I could’ve been somewhere else… I’ll never never go back. I’ll never never go. I’ll never ever ever ever go back there.

All this time to wait All this time to take All the time to waste After all this time I’ll wait. All this time to wait All this time to take All this time to waste Is all the time it takes All this time All this time All this time

You know just when the wind blows and know just where it goes when it goes. Not man enough to pass the test. Just man enough to make a mess. Not fast enough to win the race. Just close enough for second place. But I never said make a fool of me. Not brave but I’m older. Not brave but I’m bolder. Not brave but I’m bold. Can’t you trust it? Can you trust it? But I never said make a fool out of me.
