Eyes Set To Kill – A Sketch In Black And White lyrics

The sounds of sirens are flooding the streets tonight
Yet we are all still willing to commit the crimes
Should we expect no consequence (No consequence)
Maybe our lies will pass the test (Will pass the test)

Eyes closed hands tied (Behind our backs we try)
To cover up (Our deepest secrets and lies
But we both know we are suspects to the crime
And running won't solve our problems this time)

Your hands are shaking as they're holding onto mine
A sense of hesitation is hidden in your eyes

[Chorus:]
I've seen a sketch in black and white (In black and white)
I've seen the face you try to hide (try to hide
Behind the doors under the sheets
But you are guilty just like me
And none of us are innocent
A cycle of Russian roulette)

Eyes closed hands tied (Behind our backs we try)
To cover up (Our deepest secrets and lies
But we both know we are suspects to the crime
And running won't solve our problems this time)

(Pull up a seat next to me and lets face the jury
Our only chance to come clean so what's it going to be?)

I've seen a sketch in black and white
I've seen the face you try to hide

Eyes closed hands tied (Behind our backs we try)
To cover up (Our deepest secrets and lies
But we both know we are suspects to the crime
And running won't solve our problems this time)

(I've seen a sketch in black and white
I've seen the face you try to hide
Behind the doors under the sheets
But you are guilty just like me
Should we expect no consequence
Maybe our lies will pass the test
And none of us are innocent
A cycle of Russian roulette)

    What they meen with skech can only be the skech they are doing from what a witness says, we can't forget about "i've seen the face you try to hide". This song are, if you ask me about a couple or a pair of friends that are, as conquito says doing thier best to cover it up. But I will aslo say that they are half way to give up and confess it, becuse if you don't try to run you do know deep within that you are gone for it, I've been there and recognize everything from this song.
    Still it is a long past now, but yes it is pretty easy to see if you take all of the song in.
    Ps: if you ever going to jail, and can get songtext printed out, do not ask for this one, the wardens are totaly thinking it is hillarius xd.

    To the one who was marked as unregistered talking about "not sure how the title goes in with that, "i've seen a sketch in black and while" at a random guess i would say the wanted sign? " I would say you're about half right. They're probably not implying the wanted sign but rather the sketch that's being done when witnesses describe someone they saw. That is if the song is designed to be set more modernly since they'd use those sketches and try and generate a cg image of what the person must look like for any "wanted" posters. Now if it were set say more like a 1920s concept or something it could very well still be the wanted poster as well.

    I agree with conquito, this song is about people trying to hide their crimes and expecting to get away with it but they are still guilty. In the end I suspect they get caught. Not sure how the title goes in with that, "i've seen a sketch in black and while" at a random guess I would say the wanted sign? How teh sketch an image based off of what the witnesses say what the criminal looks like? "i've seen the face you try to hide" oh well, that is how music is, meant to have different views ^^.
