"Like Bankrobbers" as written by Julian Matthew Carroll, Clint Wesley Hyndman and Paul Anthony Dempsey....
you've never been better
but you've been acting a little strange
you're like some terrorist
reading battle plans behind my back
know you'll be beside me
at the frontline like the hopeless romantic
you are
you and i, like bankrobbers
couldn't think of something real to do
could you?
ran away to leave the circus
you had to be outrageous and you had to be different
you had to go and get yourself killed
you had to kill me too
you and i, like bankrobbers
caught off guard, doomed from the start (x2)
you and i, like bankrobbers
only people so desperate can be so
so frightened, so determined
you're so determined
it's frightening (x2)
you and i, like bankrobbers
we take what's not ours
while we destroy the evidence
we leave a trail of leads
leading us back (x3)
leading us (x2)
you and i, like bankrobbers
caught off guard, doomed from the start (x2)
doomed from the start

    General Commentthe most absurd vocal delivery in all of sfk's career, but the orchestral twiddles after "caught off guard" and "doomed from the start" are becautiful.
