Nits, during the International NITS Convention (INC 2005) on March 20th, 2005. Video recorded by October Films and edited by nitsfan. Crime & Punishment is from the album: Wool ( 2000)

A song about Rob Scholte, the Dutch painter who lost his legs when a bomb exploded in his car in 1994.
It is still unknown who did it and why.
Guitarist/singer Henk Hofstede has known Rob for quite some time and he wrote this angry song about the situation:

Crime & Punishment

The beauty of the town takes my breath away.
Sunlight’s cutting houses in two.
The beast of the town brings only death.
He’s cutting a man in two.

My heart is so empty, my head is so full.
I cannot understand why they blew up a car
With a man and his wife

Crime & Punishment

Cut me like you cut a flower
Burn me like you burn a tree.
The lines in my face
The nails in my hand.

Crime & Punishment

Give me one reason when the truth is a lie
Don’t take my body when I offer you my hand

2 Crime & Punishment

My heart is so empty, my head is so full
I cannot understand why they blew up a car
With a man and his wife.
