"Scene of the Crime" as written by and Brian Molko,steven Joseph Forrest Stefan Olsdal....
Send me a sign, let me know
Give me a time, a place I should go
Reach inside, watch me grow
See me rise

Scene of the crime, the star of the show
If you were mine, then we would know
The peace of mind and seeds that we sow are intertwined

We almost made it
But making it was overrated

Scene of the crime, a friend or a foe
I got a body to hide, I got a body on show
And with our bodies entwined
We will know paradise

Scene of the crime, go with the flow
Take it fast, take it slow
Stay blind so I don't know what's right

Our breath that berates before our rise
The ground beneath that shakes under our weight
We almost made it
Making it is overrated

Making it is overrated
Making it is overrated
Making it is overrated
Making it is overrated

Scene of the crime
Scene of the crime
Scene of the crime
Scene of the crime
Scene of the crime

    My InterpretationUh, it's clearly about sex.
    "Send me a sign, let me know
    Give me a time, a place I should go
    Reach inside, watch me grow
    See me rise." One's inviting other for sex, then quite a metaphor for erection there.

    "We almost made it,
    But making it is overrated" Sex isn't about when it ends, but the doing of it.

    "Scene of the crime, go with the flow
    Take it fast, take it slow
    Stay blind so I don't know what's right.

    Our breath evaporates
    Before our eyes
    The ground beneath
    That shakes under our weight"
    Even clearer the song is about sex.

    This album is so great and yet so different than other Placebo's albums.

    My InterpretationI think the song is about a story between two individuals who are trying to find the way to love, through sex. They want to meet each other, so they play a game of signs and hidden emotions. But they're discovering that sex, can create something meaningful between them, but also, can destroy the expectations they had when they met for the first time. The Scene of the crime.
