Set It Off – Partners In Crime lyrics

You'll never take us alive
We swore that death would do us part
They'll call our crimes a work of art
You'll never take us alive
We'll live like spoiled royalty
Lovers and partners
Partners in crime

This the tale of
Reckless love
Living a life of
Crime on the run
A brush to a gun
To paint these states green
And red

Everybody freeze
Nobody move
Put the money in the bag
Or we will shoot
Empty out the vault
And me and my doll will be on our way
Our paper faces flood the streets
Saying if the heat comes close enough to burn
Then we'll play with fire 'cause

You'll never take us alive
We swore that death would do us part
They'll call our crimes a work of art
You'll never take us alive
We'll live like spoiled brats
Lovers and partners
Partners in crime

Here we find our omnipotent outlaws
Fall behind the grind tonight
Left unaware that the lone store owner
Won't go down without a fight
Where we gonna go?
He's got us pinned
Baby I'm a little scared
Now don't you quit
He's sounded the alarm
I hear the sirens closing in

Our paper faces flood the streets
Saying if the heat comes close enough to burn
Then we're burning this place to the ground 'cause

You'll never take us alive
We swore that death would do us part
They'll call our crimes a work of art
You'll never take us alive
We'll live like spoiled brats
Lovers and partners
Partners in crime

The skies are black with lead filled rain
A morbid painting on display
This is the night the young love died
Buried at each other's side


You never took us alive
We swore that death would do us part
So now we haunt you in the dark
You never took us alive
We live as ghosts among these streets
Lovers and partners
Partners in crime
Partners in crime
Partners in crime
