Thieves & the Midnight Breeze

lyrics

What I say, not what I do
The truth bent to my will
Ain't no use now, you can't escape
Lord, you're gonna get your fill

Ain't I pious?
Ain't I free?
Snow-white like a dove
Come bask in the warm glow of my dark, twisted love

Change your face darling, change your name
Nightmares become dreams
Breed a false truth from your lies
As long as you believe in...

Thieves in the midnight breeze
Oh thieves, got you on your knees
Beggin' please, please

If you give it enough time
You turn to what you hate
Drawn to the dark edges
Like a moth to a flame

There's no better, there's no worse
You're somewhere in between
I'm gonna get my hold on you
When no one is looking

Change your face darling
Change your name
Nightmares become dreams
Breed a false truth from your lies
As long as you believe in...

Thieves in the midnight breeze
Oh thieves, got you on your knees
I can take you higher!
Higher above the pain
I can take you higher!
Look me in the eyes
Would I lie?
Would I lie?
