"Criminal" as written by and Scott Thomas....
Look at me, I'm happy as can be
By the air in my lungs
And the stories I spun
I, being satisfied, most of the time

Listening to the wind and the rain, always wondering
Why, does everybody run away
Tell me, tell me
When, will I get myself straight
Help me, help me

'Cause the good people I know
They come and they go
Talk about hospitals,
Making room for criminals

And they look at me, think as mad as can be
So got a criminal outside
And I just can't hide
And I'm frustrated, I try to medicate it

But nothings as strong as the damage I done
But why, does everybody run away
Tell me, tell me
When, will I get myself straight
Help me, help me

'Cause I live alone (I live alone)
With a criminal (I live alone)
I live alone (I live alone)

Why, does everybody run away
Tell me, tell me
When, will I get myself straight
Help me, help me
Why, does everybody run away
Tell me, tell me

It's the hardest thing at heart
'Cause I'm living alone, with a criminal

    General Commenti absolutely love this song. the whole album it's on is excellent but i love the way this song builds as it progresses. sure, it's the most original sound ever, but its so fucking great to listen to.

    General Commentthat should have said "sure, it's NOT the most original sound ever, but its so fucking great to listen to." my point is that ringside isn't doing anything that no one has done before, but it's fun and great to listen to.
