I can spot your kind a million miles away

Buckle down boots and a bloodshot gaze

You talk so sweet until the going gets tough


The last job you pulled was never big enough


Don't say you'll change after the next time

You wouldn't even be yourself if you weren't telling a lie



'cause I know where the cops hang out


I know where you'll be found
I know what you're all about

I know when you're going down



You only call me honey when we're alone


Hiding at your place up on slack road
You've got an answer for every little thing

You can't even tell me where you've been



My face couldn't make you leave it behind


Maybe 20 years in state will change your mind



I know where you'll be found
'cause I know where the cops hang out

I know what you're all about

I know when you're going down




You wouldn't even be yourself if you weren't telling a lie
Don't say you'll change after the next time

Maybe 20 years in state will change your mind



'cause I know where the cops hang out
I know where you'll be found



I know what you're all about
I know you'll never change now



I know my love was good enough


I know you would have she'd my blood
I know you can't shut me up

I know when you're going down
