LyricsEdit

 Let me introduce myself
 I'm a social disease
 I've come for your wealth
 Leave you on your knees
 
 No time for feeling sorry
 I got here on my own
 I won't ask for mercy
 I choose to walk alone
 
 What's yours is mine
 What's mine is mine too
 If you shake my hand
 Better count your fingers
 
 What if I do get caught?
 What if there is no judgment?
 If I'm right, I lose nothing
 If you're right, I lose it all
 
 I ought to get caught
 Because I'm doing something wicked
 I'm guilty, haunted by my fears
 And the only consequences are dread and the fugitive mind
 
 You built walls to protect you
 So no-one will infect you
 Pursued by those out there
 That vanish in thin air
 
 Come a long way to find
 What you really left behind
 You don't know when the end is
 But it's coming fast
 
 What's yours is mine
 What's mine is mine too
 If you shake my hand
 Better count your fingers
 
 What if I do get caught?
 What if there is no judgment?
 If I'm right, I lose nothing
 If you're right, I lose it all
 
 I ought to get caught
 Because I'm doing something wicked
 I'm guilty, haunted by my fears
 And the only consequences are dread and the fugitive mind
