– Lyrics –

I believe its Homicide
I rest my case don’t cast aside
You better believe it
That’s the truth of it
Take it or leave it
Resign to it

Homicide Homicide
Homicide Homicide

No one cared
When someone lied
They’d rather say
That it’s irrelevant
You better believe it
That’s the truth of it
Take it or leave it
Resign to it

Homicide Homicide
Homicide Homicide

You tried to tell me it’s his fault because he’s down
And letting loose this Homicide all over the town
I’ll take your number I’ll write it down
What’s your address I’ll write it down
I’ll be in touch so don’t leave town in a big black car

Homicide Homicide
