There are bodies in the basement of the house I used to own
I thought I could escape them with the miles I had flown
But the past, it catches up to you just when you least expect
And it crumbles down around you and makes you the prime suspect

I've a problem in my pocket that keeps calling out my name
Nobody else can hear it and they're calling me insane
But the noise is deafening and there's a ringing in my ear
Everyone else must be deaf if I'm the only one that hears

The riddle to my answer, the question that I chose
At one time it was a baby, now I see that it has grown
Left a body in Helsinki, left a body in Berlin
I thought my problems were all over, now they're starting to begin

There's a book that I was reading all about how to get away
But in the end I had to burn it, it recommended that I pray
Feeling like I've got a fever and my neck's starting to sweat
Just run my hand through my hair and do my best to forget

The choice that's been laid out before me is the path I have to choose
I wish that I'd gotten a winning one, but I know that I will lose
At the end of the day, though, it was only my and her
But I don't know what you'd expect from a violator
