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 each had a role
We'd overrehearsed 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
And 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
But it's not what you're sure of
It's what you don't know

It should have been filled with
The usual ones
Throwing their cash in
To mutual funds

We all had our ski masks
And sawed off shotguns
But how do you plan for
A bank full of nuns

But I guess we panicked
We all have taboos
And they were like zebras
They had us confused

We should be in condos
With oceanfront views
Instead we're most wanted
On the 6 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 look 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
We all did our best now
We all need to rest now
Leave me alone
