Let's leave these lives tonight
You can find us by the trail of our insides
They were left at the scene of the crime
We've tampered with evidence
Finger prints were left behind

So let's cut, cut, cut to the chase
We need to get, get, get our stories straight
This is what we're hoping
Covers blown wide open
We can make a run for it,
we can make a run for it

We've got this down to a science baby
Don't be afraid,
be very afraid
We've got this down to a science baby
We don't make mistakes
we don't intend to make

Complex, calculated
Overlooked and not underrated
We've got this down,
we've got this down

So let's cut, cut, cut to the chase
We need to get, get, get our stories straight
This is what we're hoping
Covers blown wide open
We can make a run for it,
we can make a run for it

We've got this down to a science baby
Don't be afraid,
be very afraid
We've got this down to a science baby
We don't make mistakes
we don't intend to make

We'll lure you in
set you up
to take our fall
and now it's over

We'll lure you in (Complex, calculated)
set you up (Overlooked and underrated)
to take our fall (We've got this down,)
and now it's over (we've got this down)
Now it's over

We've got this down to a science baby
Don't be afraid,
be very afraid
We've got this down to a science baby
We don't make mistakes
we don't intend to make

We've got this down to a science baby
Don't be afraid,
be very afraid
We've got this down to a science baby
We don't make mistakes
we don't intend to make

We've got this down to a science baby
(Don't be afraid) Don't be afraid,
be very afraid
We've got this down to a science baby
(We don't make mistakes) We don't make mistakes
we don't intend to make

We've got this down to a science baby
(Don't be afraid) Don't be afraid,
be very afraid
We've got this down to a science baby
(We don't make mistakes) We don't make mistakes
we don't intend to make

    My InterpretationThis song makes feel totally energized. My eyes filled with tears when I first listened to it. I believe the song is about taking risks and trusting that in the end everything will be okay. I feel a touch of sadness in the acoustic version of the song because of the calming melody. ‘We got this down to a science.’ They have a plan for something that’s for sure. The song could also be about having fun and letting go–‘Don’t be afraid, be very afraid.’ In other words, don’t worry about anything–don’t take life too seriously. Believe in yourself.

    General CommentIt sounds liek they're run aways who faked their death or something to get away. "Lets leave these lives tonight"& "Weve tampered with evidence"

    General CommentI think it's about over thinking, especially where relationships are concerned. It's about how you can get something down to a science, but the world has way too many variables to account for everything. Is falling in love with this person really a good idea? Sucks to be you, love is a feeling no one can really control. Whether your heart agrees with your mind or not, it doesn't matter. It's gonna happen.

    'We don't make mistakes we don't intend to make' is a reference to the law of unintended consequences. No one plans on making a mistake. No one plans on trusting someone who's gonna hurt them, no one plans on cheating on someone they genuinely love.

    I think the part referring to the crime scene is about covering your tracks after you've messed up, or maybe about leading people on emotionally.

    I really love this song.
