'The Cuts and the Crime' is the fourth single from the debut album 'Symbiotic' by The Zoup.


Take time, scarred line
Dance with the fire
Hurt mind, small crime
Dance with the fire

Tomorrow will be the only day to stray from comfort
Hard time, straight line
Dance with the fire

Stop my mind fading (woah)
The cuts and the crime make it glow

Can't we settle for more
Than the littlest amount being offered to us
Self blame, short reign
Dance with the fire

In my mind
The better side of never is what keeps me in line
In my mind
I'm never gonna get it from the cuts and the crime
