lyrics

Thief On The Right

You steal everything
You steal dignity
You steal futures
You steal money

You steal clarity
You steal safety
You steal value
You steal money

Keep the flame alive
The flame that licks our feet
Who will unwrite the future
Stealing, freedom from the thief

You buy reputation
You buy airtime
You buy the best liars
You buy the finest killers

Keep the flame alive
The flame that licks our feet
Who will unwrite the future
Stealing, freedom from the thief

There is nothing new under the sun
What happens here has already been done
The irony is measured in tonnes
When the cure is offered 
By the problem

You buy bloodbaths
You buy nature
You buy the public
You buy shares to keep

Keep the flame alive
The flame that licks our feet
Who will unwrite the future
Stealing, freedom from the thief

Lyrics by Stuart Anthony
