I threw a bottle in the air
And it smashed into a thousand pieces on the concrete street
Where the children play in bare feet
Whoa

We ran as fast as we could/
Cause I might have woke the neighborhood/
Oh I don't feel too good, no no no I don't feel too good at All
Cause when the sun comes up and the children wake/
Get on the street to play
I'll be the one to blame

(Chorus)
I'm a CRIMINAL

It didn't last too long
No I passed out
Woke up and the guilt was gone
Without a care I walk down the stairs
Into the kitchen eat my breakfast there
Whoa
Turn on the television screen
Emergency News Team
Little girl crying on the street sayin
Glass made my feet bleed
Oh tell me what am I gonna do
I'm fore sure done
What am I gonna do
I have no choice but to run

(Chorus)

Change my name and move to Mexico
Die my hair red and get surgery on my nose
Buy a small condo
Stay low in Mexico
Don't it sound so sweet
Get a wife and raise a family
Start my own limousine company
Stay low in Mexico
And they go!
(stay low in Mexico)

(Chorus)

    i think this song mean that we should watch our actions becuz not only can it effect you but it can effect others around you. like slapping someone or breaking something could hurt someone else like that person can get hurt or be offended and there are no second chances no times to apolygize.

    I think it means or conveys an intense realization that everything we do has a consequence and effects those around us. Even some things we may consider to be small or insignificant. I think maybe this song is an emotional exaggeration of that point.
