    Lyrics

    I dragged this lake looking for corpses
    Dusted for prints, pried up the floorboards
    Pieces of planes and black box recorders
    Don't lie
    (Don't lie)
    And I've been preoccupied with these sick, sick senses
    That sense DNA on barbed wire fences
    Maybe someday, I'll find me a suspect
    That has no alibi

    New Year's Eve was as boring as heaven
    I watched flies fuck on channel 11
    There was no one to kiss, there was nothing to drink
    Except some old rotten milk someone left in the sink
    And there's no ring, there's no ring, on the phone anymore
    There's no reason to call I passed out on the floor
    Smoked myself stupid and drank my insides raisin dry

    But at the right place at the right time
    I'll be dead wrong and you'll be just fine
    I won't have to quit doing fucked up shit
    For anyone but me
    And the right place at the right time
    It will have been worth it to stand in line
    And you won't have to stop
    say I love cops, for anyone but me
    Your private eye.

    I dragged this lake looking for corpses
    Dusted for prints, pried up the floorboards
    Pieces of planes and black box recorders
    Don't lie
    (Don't lie)
    And I've been preoccupied with these sick, sick senses
    That sense DNA on barbed wire fences
    Maybe someday, I'll find me a suspect
    That has no alibi

    At the right place at the right time
    I'll be dead wrong and you'll be just fine
    I won't have to quit doing fucked up shit
    For anyone but me
    And the right place at the right time
    It will have been worth it to stand in line
    And you won't have to stop
    Say I love cops, for anyone but me
    Your private eye
    Your private eye

    And at the right place at the right time
    I'll be dead wrong and you'll be just fine
    You won't have to quit doing fucked up shit
    For anyone but me
    And the right place at the right time
    It will have been worth it to stand in line
    And you won't have to stop
    Say I love cops, for anyone but me
    Your private eye
