lyrics

I made a picture of you with
fire all around
but you escaped you
configured a way out
the frame crept back at the seam and
you slipped away
just a thief and

you crafty devil
how do you do it?
you pick the lock and
it makes us wonder how

you're just swift enough
you jumped far enough
you got over
the hoop and wire
you're just swift enough
you jumped far enough
but I'm stuck over
in the middle of the fire

but real friends don't dwell on envy
so neither will I
after all you're still the same inside
you found a girlfriend to feed you
and thousands and thousands to need you

you crafty devil
how do you do it?
you pick the lock and
it makes us wonder how

you're just swift enough
you jumped far enough
you got over
the hoop and wire
you're just swift enough
you jumped far enough
but I'm stuck over
in the middle of the fire
