Rustic Overtones – The Heist lyrics
I walked in the bank - the black leather bag tucked
Tight beneath my arm.
When I pulled that. 45
I looked into the bankers eyes
"Don't you dare pull that alarm"
I screamed hit the floor"
A woman screamed "please, help me lord"
And I thought about you dear.
If you knew I lost my job, and gambled what we've
Saved and lost
Would you understand all of my fears?
For once in my life can I do this one thing right?
Felt the pressure tight
A weekend man, a weekend heist.
A Saturday I'd not forget
Uncle Sam this money jam you put me in
Took a human life to pay the debt
I didn't hear the guards outside, I heard a scream
I turned surprised, felt the smoking pistol
In my grip.
The gun went off into the soft yellow tie
That hung beside the banker's heart
Inside the banker's chest.
Lived such a short life, I hope he'll be alright.
For once in my life I feel so damned alive.
