Career of Evil

I plot your rubric scarab
I steal your satellite
I want your wife to be my
Baby tonight, baby tonight

I choose to steal what you choose to show
And you know I will not apologize
You’re mine for the taking

I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil

Pay me I’ll be your surgeon
I’d like to pick your brain
Capture you inject you
Leave you kneeling in the rain
Kneeling in the rain

I choose to steal what you choose to show
And you know I will not apologize
You’re mine for the taking

I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil

I’d like your blue eyed horseshoe
I’d like your emerald horny toad
I’d like to do it to your daughter on a dirt road

And then I’d spend your ransom money
But still I keep your sheep
I’d peel the mask you’re wearing
And then rob you of your sleep
Rob you of your sleep

I choose to steal what you choose to show
And you know I will not apologize
You’re mine for the taking

I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil

I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
I’m making a career of evil
