Thought, thought, thought

Thought I had a witness
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon
Thought I had a witness
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon

Thought I had a witness to this crime
I thought I had a witness
I thought we were on the same side of becoming
Oh then the judges called in a witness

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon

So then when did you then begin your cravin'
For white powder exotic matter that cells divide
Arresting time

So in your furnace then you drank my tenderness
Feldspar and Mica then you thought that you would own
My temple of gold

Gotta rise in the night and pick myself off the floor
I know now that it's over, I had a life before
You left me burnin' in your petrol emotion boy
Your petrol emotion, wanting more

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon

I thought I had a witness
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon
Thought we had a friendship
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon

Thought I heard you whispering murder
Thought this witches brew was more than bullet-proof
But words are like guns when you shoot the moon
'Cause everybody whispers, yeah

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon

So then when did you then begin your cravin'
For white powder exotic matter that cells divide
Arresting time

So in your furnace then you drank my tenderness
Feldspar and Mica then you thought that you would own
My temple of gold

Gotta rise in the night and pick myself off the floor, girls
I know now that it's over, I had a life before
You left me burnin' in boy, your petrol emotion
Your petrol emotion, wanting more

Is there anyone? Is it any wonder?
Is there anyone? Is it any wonder, oh baby?
Is there anyone? Is it any wonder?
I'm out the door, I'm out the door, now

Is there any way? Is there any way forward?
Is there any way? Is there any way forward?
Is there anyone? Is it any wonder?

Thought I had a witness
I thought you were you
Thought I was a witness
You could turn to, not in
Thought I had a witness
Thought I did

Thought I had a witness
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon
Thought I had a witness
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon

Thought I had a witness
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon
Thought I had a witness
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon
