Grateful Dead - Victim Or The Crime lyrics

Patience runs out on the junkie The dark side hires another soul Did he steal his fate or earn it? Was he force fed, did he learn it? Whatever happened to his precious self control? Like him, I'm tired of try'n to heal This tomcat heart with which I'm blessed Is destruction lovings twin? May I chose to lose or win? Maybe when my turn comes I will have guessed. These are the horns of the dilemma What truth this proof against all lies? When sacred fails before profane The wisest man is deemed insane Even the purest of romantics compromise. What fixation feeds this fever? As the full moon pales and climbs Am I living truth or rank deceiver? Am I the victim or the crime? Am I the victim or the crime? Am I the victim or the crime, or the crime? And so I wrestle with the angel To see who'll reap the seeds I sow Am I the driver or the driven? Will I be damned to be forgiven? Is there anybody here but me who needs to know? What it is that feeds this fever As the full moon pales and climbs Am I living truth or rank deceiver? Am I the victim or the crime? Am I the victim or the crime? Am I the victim or the crime, or the crime?
