Nature Of The Experiment

Album: A Lesson In Crime (2006)
  • We've got our tracks covered
    Thanks to your older brother
    It's not the moonlight that sets me off
    It's not the money that makes me scoff

    It's my impeccable disorder
    Where I keep on falling for her
    It's not the way my mother talks
    It's not the people that she mocks

    It's the nature of the experiment
    It's the patterns of my temperament
    It's the nature of the experiment
    They're taking me in increments

    We're halfway up the bracket
    The rain comes through my jacket
    It's not the stones inside my shoes
    It's not the risk of what's to lose

    It's an ancient Russian proverb
    I doubt it's ones that you've heard
    It's not the cracks beneath the floor
    It's not the fact that it's a chore

    It's the nature of the experiment
    It's the patterns of my temperament
    It's the nature of the experiment
    Taking me in increments
