Criminal

 

I ain’t nothing but a simple man

Pockets full of broken promises and blood on my hands

I ain’t no better than with who I stand

I carry the weight of the world

 

Call me criminal for stealing time

Away from ears that aren’t listening to

My words that are filled with a thousand knives

Cutting to the chase

 

We spread good word with a quota to fill

We’re looking like heroes but we’re just writing a bill

A mile long expecting something in return

 

Well I ain’t nothing but a simple man

Pockets full of broken promises and blood on my hands

I ain’t no better than with who I stand

I carry the weight of the world

 

We say an eye for an eye and you took mine first

We call each other out on our handy work

To save one soul by telling the news

Is better than the hundreds that we’re leaving confused

 

Love is more than a bible verse

Love is more than going to church

Love is more than a bible verse

Love is more than going to church

 

Well I ain’t nothing but a simple man

Pockets full of broken promises and blood on my hands

I ain’t no better than with who I stand

I carry the weight of the world
