It's not about the crime but the cover-up
So I'll keep the covers up to my neck with my eyes shut
It's all I have left to save
And I painted the most beautiful picture
On the back of my eyelids
Just in case I miss her enough
I will close them and I will see

I'm sweating bullets
I never thought that I could pull this wool over your eyes
Cause you and I both know
That we weren't ones for this disguise
Keep the lights down low
Don't show your fear
They won't hear
Well, is it worth this?
Well, tell me what do you do when there's nothing left

It's not about the crime, but the cover-up
So I'll keep the covers up to my neck with my eyes shut
It's all I have left to save
And I painted the most beautiful picture
On the back of my eyelids
Just in case I miss her enough
I will close them and I will see

Don't try to catch me
Don't try to find me
You know I'm always hiding
You won't see me
Better listen for my breathing
Don't try to catch me
Don't try to find me
You know I'm always hiding
You won't hear me
Better listen for the beating of the heart
That we know we both share
Don't be scared
You know that's my job
Well, tell me what do you do when there's nothing there

Well, it's not about the crime, but the cover-up
So I'll keep the covers up to my neck with my eyes shut
It's all I have left to save
And I painted the most beautiful picture
On the back of my eyelids
Just in case I miss her enough
I will close them and I will see

It's always something, but it's never what we wanted
Cause there's nothing more deceiving
Than the lives we're leaving
Nothing's worse than seeing all the faith you put in (x2)

It's not about the crime, but the cover-up
I'll keep the covers up to my neck with my eyes shut
It's all I have left to save
And I painted the most beautiful picture
On the back of my eyelids
Just in case I miss her enough
I will close them and I will see

It's always something
But it's never what we wanted to be
It's always something
But it's never what we wanted to be
