Lyric "Assassin"
Everyday is a long disguise
Everyday is a compromise
I can tell a blatant lie
While looking you deep in your eye

Everyday I look for a sign
What triggers your death
Triggers mine
We will ride together in the end

Assassin, assassin
Show me paradise
Life is not the same
Assassin, assassin
Show me paradise
I'll never be the same

Twenty years, a loyal friend
But now the knife is in my hand
I can't begin to understand
How I've been deceived

Show me visions out of time
Greater than my stinking life
If I serve you to the end
I will find some peace

Assassin, assassin
Show me paradise
Life is not the same
Assassin, assassin
Show me paradise
I'll never be the same

Baksheesh, Baksheesh
I'd sell my sainted mother
For another glimpse of paradise
Baksheesh, baksheesh
Twenty years, deep cover
For another glimpse of your paradise

Assassin, assassin
Show me paradise
Life is not the same
Assassin, assassin
Show me paradise
I'll never be the same
I'll never be the same
