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 InterpretationThis song is clearly about sex, but what makes the song interesting is the slight hint to the underlying message of the song: 'Love Fails when the lovers don’t evolve beyond desire.

    ' And the main character recognizes this by calling their passionate endeavor 'scene of the crime' because the crime is that their love is not evolving and they are only with each other because of the great sex they have. The line 'We almost made it But making it was overrated' refers to both: the act of the sex being more fun than the climax as well as they almost made to get into a committed relationship but relationships are overrated. So we see that the protagonist is not yet mature enough to be in a committed relationship.
