  • Well the crooks are out
    And the streets are gray
    You know I wouldn't have it any other way, yeah
    Your mother's words, they're, they're ringing still
    But your mother don't pay our bills, yeah

    A sinister kid is a kid who
    Runs to meet his maker
    A drop that spreads from the day he's born
    Straight into his maker's arms
    And that's me, that's me
    The boy with the broken halo
    That's me, that's me
    The devil won't let me be

    I got a tortured mind
    And my blade is sharp
    A bad combination in the dark
    If I kill a man in the first degree
    Baby would you, would you flee with me?

    Yeah, a sinister kid is a kid who
    Runs to meet his maker
    A drop that spreads from the day he's born
    Straight into his maker's arms
    And that's me, that's me
    The boy with the broken halo
    That's me, that's me
    The devil won't let me be

    A sinister kid is a kid who
    Runs to meet his maker
    A drop that spreads from the day he's born
    Straight into his maker's arms
    And that's me, that's me
    The boy with the broken halo
    That's me, that's me
    The devil won't let me be Writer/s: Daniel Auerbach, Patrick Carney
