This song is by Gowan and appears on the album Strange Animal (1985). You see my hands are steadyYou've seen my face beforeSoon you can take your last lookAnd they'll close the doorI stand accused before youI have no tears to cryAnd you will never break meTill the day I die. A criminal mind is all IAll I've ever knownThey tried to reform meBut I'm made of cold stoneMy criminal mind is all IAll I've ever hadAsk one who's known meIf I'm really so badI am. Gowan spent a year writing songs, and also travelled to Scotland and Ireland to trace.
