The sound of sirens are flooding the streets tonight
Yet we are all still willing to commit the crimes

Should we expect no consequence (no consequence)
maybe our lies will pass the test (will pass the test)

Eyes closed hands tied
behind our back we try
to cover up
our deepest secrets and lies
but we both know we are suspects to the crime
and running won’t solve our problem this time

Your hands are shaking as they’re holing onto mine
a sense of hesitation is hidden in your eyes

I’ve seen a sketch in black and white (in black and white)
I’ve seen the face you try to hide (you try to hide)

Behind the doors under the sheets,
but you are guilty just like me
and none of us are innocent
a cycle of russian roulette

Eyes closed hands tied
behind our back we try
to cover up
our deepest secrets and lies
but we both know we are suspects to the crime
and running won’t solve our problem this time

Pull up a seat next to me and lets face the jury
our only chance to come clean
so what’s it going to be?

I’ve seen a sketch in black and white
I’ve seen the face you try to hide

Eyes closed hands tied
behind our back we try
to cover up
our deepest secrets and lies
but we both know we are suspects to the crime
and running won’t solve our problem this time

I’ve seen a sketch in black and white
I'm the face you try to hide
behind the doors under the sheets,
but you are guilty just like me

Should we expect no consequence
maybe our lies will pass the test
and none of us are innocent
a cycle of russian roulette

    General CommentCarolinaIsBreathing, Oh really? well, that's nice, dear.

    Anywayyy....I think this is about two people who have committed a crime and are lying to try and get themselves off the hook. The sketch in black and white are the pictures that have drawn up of them and are on wanted signs and stuff..
    Maybe I'm just thinking of it in the literal sense, maybe the meaning is deeper than this but this is all I can think of.

    General CommentTo me it seems to me as if it is about two people who are not suppose to be together. They lie to others about there relationship and who they really are, and only the other person can see the "true them"

    General CommentI think its kind of a cross between what stagnate & justalittllost wrote. The 2 lovers aren't supposed to be together or they cheat or whatever, that's the "crime", and they both know each others secret. And what stagnate wrote, about the 'sketch in black & white' being the pictures of them I think is true, but its like a metaphor for them being able to see each other's bad side ('the face you try to hide').

    General Commentto me this song reminds me of when i took this huge dump the other day, it was gross, beside the point i shaved my pubes today and unfortunately i farted in the process; this in turn startled me which resulted in me cutting my penis, it bled a lot but then i had my boyfriend suck the blood off of my sexual organ, we proceeded to have gay sex, i ejaculated on his butt.
