HONOR AMONG THIEVES

To walk the streets you hide your money neatly
So the Artful Dodger picks your mind
You take your chances as you ride the subway
And as you sign the dotted line

Another blind man's search for honor
Ends in a heap under a streetlight
So Katie, bar the doors and windows
For the thieves are out tonight

Why don't we celebrate the Ides of April
Proclaim the 15th - All Thieves Day
We'll fill the courtrooms pleading 'human nature'
Save persecution for the saints

Another blind man's search for honor
Ends up a notch on some punk's slip-knife
So Katie, bar the doors and windows
For the thieves are watching

Behind the scenes the dodger plays a new game
Agitate, captivate, capitalize
His ruse to finance hostile escalation
A death dance on the knife edge of a lie

The thieves are out tonight
The thieves are out tonight
