lyrics

By the by I made my mind on a true blue.
I'm hanging round town, ear to the ground
waiting for something new.
There ain't no shame in taking all the blame in this scenario.
I heard every word, airwaves crackling on the radio.

I'll be the judge, I'll be the jury.
Watch how it works out for you. Not to worry,
Got good intentions, don't forget to mention my good name.

Take the time to mastermind a crime on the silver screen.
You turned Snow White red, gone straight to the head
of the crimson aristocracy.
The game stays the same
unless you go and change what you're playing for.
You never let me win,
try and try again just to even up the score.

Peace is my profession, better start confessing.
Watch how it worked out for them.
Got good intentions, don't forget to mention my good name.

I got something from nothing, can't remember just what it was.
It's too late to ask all these questions
after acting like I know what it does.

I stay out until the sun is rising
with my head up, looking towards the sky.
When I'm broken I stand up like a mountain
just to crumble in the thought of a landslide.

You're such a bore, my friend.
You're such a bore, my friend.

Moving slow, got nowhere to go until I want to.
Gonna turn on the light, such a pretty sight
when you're strolling down the avenue.
Ain't no way I'm ever gonna say what really happened there.
What's done is done,
hold the smoking gun like the cross I bear.

I'll be the judge, I'll be the jury.
Watch how it works out for you. Not to worry,
Peace is my profession, better start confessing my good name.
