PUNISHMENT FITS THE CRIME

From the album VICTIM OF THE MOON (2002)

Itís a bad indication
When you cry every day
When everyone you ever loved
Has vanished or moved away
Oh was it me who deserted
Was it me all the time
And once again Iím reminded
How the punishment fits the crime
How the punishment fits the crime

Iím a bit broken hearted
And I bleed to the touch
I canít even breath too deep
íCause I feel everything too much
Oh, this is not a song about a common man
Iíve had too much Love and too much time
And once again Iím reminded
How the punishment fits the crime
How the punishment fits the crime

All this not being wanted
Has put me in a rage
The furies live in my childhood nights
The child grows up by day
But I hold on to my vision
And my faith makes me blind
And once again Iím reminded
How the punishment fits the crime
How the punishment fits the crime

Itís a bad indication
When you cry every day
