Oh I wouldn’t want to live
in a world without grudges.
I’m waiting for you in the back of some bar.
In some city where I’m living at the top,
life clear and skin taut.
I’ll be sitting at the bar there drinking
you just walk up and introduce yourself.
Jesus I’m jumpy just relax you dumb motherfucker
it’s so hard to keep quiet in these times.
For the longest while there’s been a thought
in the back of my mind which can not help
but bring ruin.
It’s been one perfect crime, all my life until tonight.

You and I, we have a lot in common.
We met at some party or at some bar.
It was one of those night when everything
seems like a good idea,
one of those nights when every drink was free.
It was one perfect crime.

I have always been very articulate about
things I will decide to change my mind about later.
I’m still thinking of you sitting at my family seder,
always staring at Elijah’s cup
‘cause it’s the only one still filled up
and never believing that shit about
angels fearing to tread.

It’s been one perfect crime, all my life–
until tonight.
