At the time

I studied numbers,sequences and rhymes Connections,patterns in between the lines It seemed a good idea at the time Unfortunately, with study, we use mime We see beneath the surface to the crimes I studied numbers,sequences and rhymes Whenever I was found, I took the blame The clock gave more than twenty thousand chimes Life seemed a good idea all the time Humiliation, sadism,torture,fame We share the blasphemy that God will smile Life seemed a good idea at the time How the world is full of rebuffs yet beguiles Enough,I’ll give it one more finite trial I studied numbers,sequences and lies I joined the Secret Service,I’m a spy Share this:
