Partner In Crime
Lyrics: John Popper
Music: Tad Kinchla

Trouble has always ever managed to find me
I do my best but in the end I usually get away
That's how it's always been
Quite comfortable in fact
And now at last you've caught me
And it's time to finally pay

Is it the dead man walking
Who feels the most alive?

And you're taking it to me
You sent a shock right through me
To begin is a lifetime
My partner in crime

Your lead dog's off the leash and he has treed me
Not the finest hiding place I see in retrospect
The only thing to possibly have freed me
Was the mercy that I squandered
No mercy I expect

Is it the dead man walking
Who feels the most alive?

And you're taking it to me
You sent a shock right through me
To begin is a lifetime
My partner in crime
And you're taking it to me
You sent a shock right through me
To begin this lifetime of a partner in crime

Is it the dead man walking
Who feels the most alive?

And you're taking it to me
You sent a shock right through me
To begin is a lifetime
My partner in crime
And you're taking it to me
You sent a shock right through me
To begin is a lifetime
My partner in crime

Is it the dead man walking/Who feels the most alive?
Likely a reference to John himself, who has been close to death on several occasions. "Dead Man Walking" was also the original title of the song as written on early setlists.
