lyrics

It's a lie so don't waste my time on your
alibi with a twist of lime you
your self-defense
or self pretense
is just another faded disguise

Feels like one long procedural to me
track you down, taking notes and all I see
dead ends
misdeeds
reads like
a second hand mystery

so what is a door closed without a goodbye
what is a message sent without a reply
when you can't be sure of the truth
suspicion counts for proof
at least in my mind
I'd call it a crime

went through your pocket lint and searched your drawers
lost my head had to get down on all fours
under
the bed
looking
for dangerous saboteurs

so what is the fear that keeps me awake in the night
and what is the doubt that's turned me into a spy
when you can't be sure of the truth
suspicion counts for proof
at least in my mind
I'd call it a crime

I saw you on the street yesterday, chatting up some guy
you didn't see me watching from the coffee shop nearby
called you on your cellphone but you just let it ring
the two of you just laughing and talking, like it didn't mean a thing

what is the fear that keeps me up awake in the night
and what is the doubt that's turned me into a spy
when you can't be sure of the truth
suspicion counts for proof
at least in my mind
I'd call it a crime
