You've been seen in the movies

you've been seen in the papers

and it looks like your lifestyle

is just a string of new capers

so you've been robbing 'em all

been robbing 'em blind

and no matter what name you're called

it's just your style of crime

 

If you ever decide

to come on home

you're gonna have to leave

that blinding smile alone

'cause hypocrisy's a heavy word

and some crimes of yours are just absurd

but I wouldn't stand in the way

of all that you've rehearsed

 

Yeah, you've been seen in the movies

yeah, you've been seen in the papers

and it looks like your lifestyle

is just a string of new capers

so you've been robbing 'em all

been robbing 'em blind

and no matter what name you're called

it's just your style of crime

it's just your

style

of crime

  

 

Your Style of Crime

 

You've got that ready smile

a smile for teeth only

one that makes people forget

forget that they're lonely

you've got a laugh that condemns

gods and devils alike

it crackles just like splintered ice

when you're half lit in the night
