I woke up today
on a hospital bed
and the white coats say
"You were next to dead".
But you're the perfect criminal
and so we gave you life.
You're the perfect criminal
and we need the perfect crime.
What you did before,
believe that we don't care.
Your country needs you now
and this is why you're here.
'Cause you're the perfect criminal
and there'll be a time
for the perfect criminal
to commit the perfect crime.
Say your lines like we taught you to
and you'll be just fine in the interview.
Help the minister and understand
that he saved your life, he's your only friend.
You're the perfect criminal
and so we gave you life.
You're the perfect criminal
and we need the perfect crime.
Yes, you're the perfect criminal
and there'll be a time
for the perfect criminal
to commit the perfect crime.
