"Criminal" as written by Benjamin I. Jelen and Joseph E. Janus....
Leaving waves of lies behind
No time to contemplate
Sailing ships of solitude
I never let the sadness dissipate
Leave behind an angry anchor
It's never too late

I guess it's in a time like this
The winds would blow the other way
Sailing through a sea of doubt
I have the time to contemplate
A world so harsh to face and lies so commonplace
We're insecure 'cause we want more
What about the time before?
Was it ignorance?
We said never again

I'm a criminal
I turn away when I know what's going on
My children will ask me, “How did you ignore”
If you really don't see
Then open up your eyes
'Cause its glaring out in front of me
I'll go by myself

I guess it's in the times like these
When the winds are fake
When I wish we'd sail together
Take these empty seas away
In a world so harsh to face and lies so commonplace
We're insecure 'cause we want more
What about the time before?
Was it ignorance? We said never again
Was it ignorance or innocence?
Aren't they really the same?
