Lyrics

sexcrime
can i take this for granted
with your eyes over me
in this place
this wintery home
i know there's always someone in

sexcrime

and so i face the wall
turn my back against it all
how i wish that i had been unborn
wish i was unliving here

sexcrime
nineteen eighty-four

i pull the bricks down one by one
leave a big hole in the wall
just when you are looking in

sexcrime
nineteen eighty-four
give me myself
