I never would have guessed i’d see you stoop so low
I should have known that i was losing from the get go
If everything had gone according to plan
None of us would ever have to work again
I was an honest man i never took a thing in life
Sometimes the blues will introduce you to a life of crime
Here in the box it is my personal hell
Crime pays but it don’t pay too well
And I wanted to tell you that everythings perfectly fine...but that’s a lie.
In fourty seconds we were in and out and the deed was done
If no one tries to be a hero they won’t see my gun
Ladies and gentlemen we just mean business
So all you citizens don’t pay attention
Then at the top of my lungs i said get on the floor
And fired a couple warning shots into the door
But when i got inside, the vault was empty
Except for a note that said “god forgive me”.
And an honest man has nothing to fear,
So i’m tryin my best not to look so scared.
I got a spoon i’ll dig my way soon clean outta here...
