about

“What strange phenomena we find in a great city, all we need do is stroll about with our eyes open. Life swarms with innocent monsters.”
― Charles Baudelaire

lyrics

I wanna be a criminal
who flies from time to time
I’m becoming an animal
who glides from rhyme to crime

Barefoot in the mire,
A foggy desire,
Belvedere's strobing,
Revealing Hearts on discount...

Is it that I'm tired
An illusion so far
The Backstreet's whispering:
"Let me show you what's behind the lies you hide inside"

I wanna be a criminal
who flies from time to time
I’m becoming an animal
who glides from rhyme to crime

Let's hope one day I’ll realize That I’m like oil on fire
A spark turns me on Bursting what’s left of my mind

I found a weird family who has it all to please me
All I could do was agree to their ensnaring creed,
Keeping focus on their entertainment,
Serving the circus as a client

I wanna be a criminal
who flies from time to time
I’m becoming an animal
who glides from rhyme to crime

Let's hope one day I’ll realize That I’m like oil on fire
A spark turns me on, a spark turns me on
Bursting what’s left of my mind

Can a man be more depraved?
I’ve lost my origins, traded them for another skin
Am I the one who betrays?
In a game played like a race amongst those familiar faces!
Who gave me everything From the Craddle to the grave

I found a weird family who has it all to please me
All I could do is agree to their ensnaring creed
I've lost my focus on my entertainment
When the laughter’s reduced to silence

I wanna be a criminal
who flies from time to time
I’m becoming an animal
who glides from rhyme to crime

Let's hope one day I’ll realize That I’m like oil on fire
A spark turns me on, a spark turns me on
Bursting what’s left of my mind
