Criminal

Take a good look around –
Sleepless in the night
Without a sound,
You won’t see,
That I’ve slipped into your thoughts;
You won’t know that it’s me.
Just waiting to strike.
I’m a criminal, baby.

I broke into your mind
When I made you mine.
Then I crept into your heart
While you laid there in the dark.

I’m just a criminal, cr-cr-cr-criminal;
Half of a whole,
I’ve been biding my time and now,
I’m coming for your soul.

Cr-cr-cr-criminal, I’ll leave you subliminal,
Just watch what I’ll do.
Yeah, and I’ll leave the evidence behind
When I’m done with you.

I waited, debated; said I wouldn’t rush,
You know that love can be quite dangerous.
Cleaned out your pockets,
Then I closed your eye sockets.

I’m just a criminal on the low,
Should have seen it coming, but now you know,
This way it’s best, I digress;
Saved the best for last.
Should never trust a man with class.

I’m just a criminal, cr-cr-cr-criminal;
Half of a whole,
I’ve been biding my time and now,
I’m coming for your soul.

Cr-cr-cr-criminal, I’ll leave you subliminal,
Just watch what I’ll do.
Yeah, and I’ll leave the evidence behind
When I’m done with you.

When I leave you behind,
You’ll be another corpse that they find,
Another day on the news;
Fame is a game
That I can’t afford to lose.

I’m just a criminal, cr-cr-cr-criminal;
Half of a whole,
I’ve been biding my time and now,
I’m coming for your soul.

Cr-cr-cr-criminal, I’ll leave you subliminal,
Just watch what I’ll do.
Yeah and then I’ll leave the evidence behind
When I’m done with you.

I seeped into the cracks
That led to your collapse,
And then I poisoned your mind
When I left you behind.

Now that I’m done with you,
I hope they catch me soon.
Who knows what I’ll do
By the light of another full moon.
I’m just a criminal, baby.
It’s what I do.
