And I don't care about that new angle you used
It's not that clever or new
But relying on suspicion's
Not suspicious at all if it's true
And I don't care about that last message I sent
Now keep it for evidence
Now baby, what is it to you?

Detective, detective
Well, I hope you found what you're looking for
I'm kind of confused
What the benefit of your doubt
Is worth to me anymore

And did you ever think I was leaving this trail
For you to follow at my will?
Well, my guess is if you knew
You would be moving much slower
Your standards have lowered
Now keep it cautious and still
I only do it cause I can and you will

Detective, detective
Well, I hope you found what you're looking for
I'm kind of confused
What the benefit of your doubt
Is worth to me anymore
Suspecting, suspecting
Well, I never said I never knew
You know it's not always about...

Detective, detective
Well, I hope you found what you're looking for
Suspecting, suspecting
Tell me what all that hard work was for

Keep the lights out
Hope no one finds out
Keep your fingers close to the keys
Keep your eyes on the prize
And rely on your flawless wit and instinct

Detective, detective
Well, I hope you found what you're looking for
I'm kind of confused
What the benefit of your doubt
Is worth to me anymore
Suspecting, suspecting
Well, I never said I never knew
You know it's not always about you

    General Commentthis song is about myspace.

    "And I don't care about that new angle you used"

    ..is talking about "myspace angled pictures"


    i think its more like he is with somebody and she's stalking/lurking his myspace trying to figure out if he's cheating or doing something behind his back. she's being a "detective, detective."
