Victimless Crime

(back)                                                                                           (listen / download)

Out behind the stables with
All the best intentions in mind
But half blind

Hiding in the hay loft and
Tying up the ends which unwind
By design

None were any wiser when
One by one the rancheros fell
To the spell

All the pretty horses on
Each and every last carousel
Said farewell

No one gets hurt just walk away
Victimless crime like a ballet
Dance for December skates on the lake
Crisp is the crack swift is the break

Driving at a point with no
Gasoline or oil in the tank
Please no thanks

Saddle up the best one but
Better not invest let’s be frank
We’re outflanked

Maybe all the rules and the
Regulation tools have your grin
Paper thin

Never mind the hay bales or
Legalese delays underpinned
Just break in

No one gets hurt just walk away
Victimless crime like a ballet
Dance for December skates on the lake
Crisp is the crack swift is the break

Hand on the shifter
Eyes on the prize
Hard as a pillar
Fast as goodbye

Beautiful freedom
Just like machines
Dangerous heathens
Long live the dream
