It was an upset in two minutes flat,
We're back on the freeway, foot to the mat.
I can't understand it, we had it down pat,
It's very upsetting, could we leave it at that?

We all had positions, we all had a role,
We'd over-rehearsed it, we had full control.
They can't teach you acting, it's there in your soul,
It's the same with a bank job, and each thing we stole.

So I don't need attitude,
Cause you knew just what to do.
We all did our best now,
We all need to rest now.
Leave me alone, wait by the phone.

I was the driver, you ran the show,
You had the last word, the go or no-go.
I knew every laneway in Ontario,
It's not what you're sure of, it's what you don't know.

It should have been filled of the usual ones,
Throwing their cash into mutual funds.
We all had our ski-mask, sawn-off shotguns,
But how do you plan for a bank full of nuns?

Well I guess we panicked, we all have taboos,
They were like Zebras, they had us...confused.
We should be in condos, with ocean-front views,
Instead we're Most Wanted on the six o'clock news.

So I don't need attitude,
Cause you knew just what to do.
We all did our best now,
We all need to rest now.
Leave me alone, and wait by the phone.

Inside the police car, you tried to explain,
Your crisis of conscience, the voice in your brain.
And now that the whole thing has gone down the drain,
I think we all know who should shoulder the blame.

Cause you made a choice there, almost sublime,
I'm all for compassion, just not on my dime.
You looked like an amateur, and that's the real crime,
So I'll take a walk now, and you do the time.

And I don't need attitude,
Cause you knew just what to do.
We all did our best now,
We all need to rest now.
Leave me alone, there's no need to phone.

We all did our best now,
We all need to rest now,
Leave me alone.
