                        1
I plot your rubric scarab, I steal your satellite
                        1
I want your wife to be my baby tonight
                        2
I choose to steal what you chose to show

And you know I will not apologize

Your mine for the taking
                        3
I'm making a career of evil (repeat three times)
                        1
Pay me I'll be your surgeon, I'd like to pick your brains
                        1
Capture you, Inject you, leave you kneeling in the rain
                        2
I choose to steal what you chose to show

And you know I will not apologize

Your mine for the taking
                        3
I'm making a career of evil (repeat three times)
                        4
I'd like your blue eyed horseshoe, I'd like your emerald horny toad

I'd like to do it to your daughter on a dirt road
                        1
And then I'd spend your ransom money, but still I'd keep your sheep
                        1
I'd peel the mask your wearing, and then rob you of your sleep
                        2
I choose to steal what you chose to show

And you know I will not apologize

Your mine for the taking
                        3
I'm making a career of evil.
                        5
I'm making a career of evil (repeat seven times)

Outro: 6

i think in the first bit it goes up to an power chord (or some variant of) on 8th fret before playing the "riff" though that may just be the bass...
