Guilty

Tell-tale heart beating wildly out of place
Tell-tale heart beating wildly out of place

I can see the sweat lining your brow
Well if you’re innocent, baby
There’s no sense being scared anyhow
They say that if you do the crime
You gotta pay the time
But if you’re innocent
You shouldn’t hear

Tell-tale heart beating wildly out of place
Tell-tale heart beating wildly out of place

The jewel of the prosecution
Has got the testimony, making you squirm
If he’s the one with the lies
You have no reason to worry (Right?)
The jury will reach their verdict
Deliberating a corner room
Will you be vindicated?
Or will you be…?

Tell-tale heart beating wildly out of place
Tell-tale heart (bump, bump, bump, bump)

If the past has the power to condemn
You are guilty
Good behavior won’t last so you can’t win
You are guilty

You can take the stand
On your own behalf, plead your case
Pull the others’ heart strings
As yours goes at a rapid pace (Bump, bump, bump)
You think you’ve played your cards right
But there is one thing
That keeps you awake at night

Tell-tale heart beating wildly out of place
Tell-tale heart beating wildly out of place

Juts when you’ve fallen into a false security
Guess what’s on display for the world to see
Exhibit B

If the past has the power to condemn
You are guilty
Good behavior won’t last so you can’t win
You are guilty

You won’t get away with it
You’re guilty so you won’t get away with it
