Public Image Ltd. – Criminal lyrics

Like a criminal.
Did you think it could be like on tv?
Where you could be big in your own movie?
Did real life let you down?
A genuine Pygmalion.
(Criminal) Like a criminal.
(No) No good to anyone.
(Foolish) Gotta get a life and get sensible.
(No) No pity, no pardon.
Criminal. Just like a criminal.
Could've been a factor.
Could've been another distracter.
Some like it in limousines, I like it in a tractor.
Solo, separate, not just one of a crowd.
Indifferent to compliment.
I leave my funeral ground.
(Criminal) Like a criminal.

(No) No pity, no pardon.
Just a criminal.
Haven't got a clue.
Cannot comprehend anything you value.
I'm probably just like you.
Yes, I haven't got a clue.
Just let that Judas goat lead you down that narrowing
As affluence is your influence.
You'll be of no consequence.
(Criminal) Like a criminal.
(No) No pity, no pardon.
Yes, I haven't got a clue.
Just like a criminal.
I can not comprehend anything you value.
Probably just like you.
Yes, I haven't got a clue.
I cannot comprehend anything you value
