The police showed me a photo
You look so unlikeable
I say I'm not sure it is you
But I wish I said it was you
You taught me a lesson
People are stupid in the dark
People are useless in the moonlight
People are meant to be loved
Loved without thought, loved without thought, oh
In the moonlight
Pull out the gun, give me your money
Give me your phone, you can keep your ID
The detectives encourage as I punch you in the tummy
Once we felt sorry for you people
But not that sorry
You taught me a lesson
People are stupid in the dark
People are useless in the moonlight
People are meant to be loved
Loved without thought, loved without thought, oh
In the moonlight

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the first verse goes like this:

    Police showed me your photo
    You look so unlikeable
    I said, I'm not sure it's you
    But I wish I said it was you.

    General CommentThis is about killing someone, possibly a recent acquaintance, and about helplessness of people, which are easily loved and killed ("in the dark").

    General CommentIt's about Jamie Stewart's experience being mugged and his revenge fantasy.
