lyrics

I once had detectives at my bedside
Reading me questions in a language they had yet to decide
I did not answer, I could not read their papers
The cliché "run and hide" was here just good advice

I was young then, I did not know my rights
They knocked over my lampshade to my surprise
They shone a light in my eyes, so they could see the lies
I glanced towards the door, lampshade on the floor

They exited quickly, just as they had came
They wanted something, I gave them a name
The name was made up, so was the address
Fiction can take the blame, I started to get dressed
