Name of Song: A criminal record tends to follow you in time

Committing a crime is easy,
Covering it up is hard,
You never know who saw you there
so often someone on guard.

Once you commit a crime you’ll find
you’ll need to remove all clues,
Leave nothing for forensics,
They’re really good at finding you.

Later on you hear about
a clue that points to you,
More and more to cover up
to erase what you did do.

Chorus
Is it really worth it,
To take a chance on crime,
Those immortal computer records
tend to follow you in time.

Bridge
So crime is really risky,
The waiting scars your mind,
You start to look like a criminal
‘cause your mind gets locked in time.
A withhold lasts forever,
Just look at things you’ve done,
Unless you take an ownership
so you’re not this only one.
Find someone you trust,
Tell them what you want,
To listen to your sins and crimes
so don’t feel their haunt.

Yes crime is really risky,
The waiting scars your mind,
You start to look like a criminal
‘cause your mind gets locked in time.

A withhold lasts forever,
Just look at things you’ve done,
Unless you take an ownership
so you’re not the only one.

Tell them what you want,
To listen to your sins and crimes
