Hey you, don't get off of my cloud
I find you fascinating
In this world, full of liars and thieves
You're sweet and supplicating
Whereas I practice
All of the dealy sins that there are
With a split, silver tongue
I am calling heaven above

Cause I've been thinking of the perfect crime
And waiting for the perfect card to pull
A victim of a one-track mind
Been thinking of the perfect time to call
A friend in need's a friend indeed
I'll keep you closer than an enemy
Been thinking of the perfect crime

I was raised on Holden Caulfield
Persona non grata
Elvis, Jagger, Lennon and Neil
Were my alma mater
You can judge, I suppose
But it's your net caught in the rope
Little things we do to cope
Better wash my mouth out with soap

Cause I've been thinking of the perfect crime
And waiting for the perfect card to pull
A victim of a one-track mind
Been thinking of the perfect time to call
A friend in need's a friend indeed
I'll keep you closer than an enemy
Been thinking of the perfect crime

Something wicked, this way, comes
Grab your torches and your guns
It's the beast that lives within my child
Painted red and white
Oh...

Cause I've been thinking of the perfect crime
And waiting for the perfect card to pull
A victim of a one-track mind
Been thinking of the perfect time to call
A friend in need's a friend indeed
I'll keep you closer than an enemy
Been thinking of the perfect crime
