Lyrics

Take (take) I take what I need
Steal (steal) I breath in the greed
Reach (reach) hands to the sky
Gone (gone) in the blink of an eye

Ain't no mistakin' it's your world I'm takin'.
My fate is unshaken each time awaken.

I will do the crime, but I won't be doing the time.

Sucker punch, don't see me comin'.
Fire (fire) both barrels gunnin'.
World's fastest guns, they say. Leave you all in dismay.
Feel alive in a way no other game to play.

Pit the world against me. I dare you to try and catch me.

I will do the crime, but I won't be doing the time.

Pull back the hammer I don't think I stammered. I steal for the glamour; the worlds greatest scammer.

Pit the world against me. I dare you to try and catch me.

I will do the crime, but I won't be doing the time.

I like the hook/lyrics. Well played and produced. I like the distorted vocals too. Well done!
