Scott Stapp – Criminal lyrics

I listened alone all night
I listened for what seems is no way out
No windows to allow a sound or light to feed my mind,
Slowly I bury myself alive, alive

I'm so sorry, so sorry I opened that door
I'm just searching, I am searching for reasons why
I hear knocking, knocking on doors I have closed
The man you're describing has got to be make believe
No you're not insane, no no
Yes, it was me
Why can't you see me for what I've become?
Not who I used to be
I'm no criminal

My life's stuck in rewind
Look the other way
Big mistakes I made
So why do I keep turning back to see the flames?
When ashes still burn in my eyes
Oh, the pain

Said I'm so sorry, so sorry I opened that door
I'm just searching, I am searching for reasons why
I hear knocking, knocking on doors I have closed
The man you're describing has got to be make believe
No, you're not insane, no, no
Yes it was me
Why can't you see me for what I've become?
Not who I used to be
I'm no criminal, no criminal
Not caught red handed, busted

I'm not in chains, I'm not in chains
Oh why can't you see me for what I've become?
Not who I used to be
There's no criminal, no criminal, no criminal, left in me
In me...
Can't you see?
Why is the day so many follow narrows the path I soon will swallow
Blinding eyes can't see my way
Can you help me please?

I'm no criminal, no criminal
Not caught red handed, busted
I'm not in chains, I'm not in chains
Oh, why can't you see me for what I've become?
Not who I used to be
I'm no criminal, no criminal, no criminal, left in me
Why, why, why?
I'm no criminal
Why, why, why?
'Cause I'm no, I'm no
No criminal...

I listened alone all night
I listened for what seems is no way out
No windows to allow a sound or light to feed my mind,
Slowly I bury myself alive
