The Lyrics

A heist needs to be planned and pulled off to absolute perfection. If something goes wrong, that one weak link becomes the Achille's Heel: one nick and KABOOM! It's history.
Somehow they found us out
That was sarcasm, by the way
Blame is all on you now
We could've made a clean escape
From our little heist there
A priceless heirloom sold away
If only you'd kept up
With the plans that we made that day

The only reason
That we will rot in jail our whole life
Is cause you failed to fake
A decent-ish replica, 'kay?

Wrong substitution, those with bad eyes
Could tell it isn't right
How'd you bollocks up with all that time?

Perfect plan failed us now
Because the key was you, each day
You swore you "got this", how
Did you then screw up this bad, mate?
You had worked out the scale
More ref'rence photos than was sane
The decoy that you placed
Was twenty-second rate

Singular reason
That we will face all of the jail time
Can't plan a real failsafe
When one dipshit botches their place

Wrong substitution, all those with eyes
Can see that isn't right
Whole plan scuppered, gone to shit
Wrong substitution, those with no eyes
Can tell it's fake, so I
Must ask, moron, are you drunk or high?

Need every piece to fall in place
Or else a heist won't end up great
We're on trial cause one ingrate
Just had to slack off, yes, you, mate
Stop now, not leavin' here tonight
Stop now, we've earned our stay, alright
Trust in you was mislaid
Cause all you cared 'bout was the weight

Wrong substitution, how did your eyes
Figure that was alright?
Such an awkward lump there, friend
Wrong substitution, look with your eyes
Turn off that glint, wait, I
Think you hold some ill intent
Wrong substitution on purpose, I'm
Caught by a real blindside
Next time, gonna screen my team more tight

Then again, if everything went off perfectly, it wouldn't make for an interesting film/book/episode, would it?
