lyrics

here I sit in silent wonder
while you set the scene
submitting to your private torture of the first degree

here I am anticipating
a healthy act of sin, oh
I tell you that flattery won't get you nowhere
your hands have not yet been

baby are you ready for the other side of me
call it a prevention of a crime of passion
honey after all the films that you and I have seen
I wouldn't push me to the edge of your obsession, no no

through the hell of your rejections
I was held on call, oh
you can't tell me you don't notice
the torture of it all, oh yeah

through the maze of strange reactions
I guessed my way in, oh
but I was outside your sense of sane encounter
and your politics of sin

oh baby are you ready for the other side of me
call it a prevention of a crime of passion
honey after all the films that you and I have seen
I wouldn't push me to the edge of your obsession, no no

I don't know if this is madness
and I don't really wanna know it
every trap you open for me
I'm not gonna fall for it

every time you kiss me baby
it feels like the day of the dead
put your loving arms around me
and I might take a bite out of it

baby are you ready for the other side of me
call it a prevention of a crime of passion
honey after all the films that you and I have seen
I wouldn't push me to the edge of your obsession

hey baby are you ready for the other side of me
call it a prevention of a crime of passion
oh honey after all the films that you and I have seen
I wouldn't push me to the edge of your obsession
