Thief

from Esshatology by Johan Ess

lyrics

it's the age of deceit as i choose a seat
in the fully interactive society
it seems that i know more about famine and war
than the polka dotted lovers at my core

there's a need that drills me down
to a vault hidden in the ground
and it's looking like i have a little more space to fill... yeah

i'm a thief i'm a little weak when it comes to things
snatch some spice or a little oil but i'm not from the east
a klepto whore go to a store leave feeling like a rich man
grease my beard with stolen beer twenty rings on one... hand

i cloak myself in black as i go through stacks
of perversive and precarious papers
a feeling deep inside causes my to sigh
how hairy they look as we get straighter

there's a need that drills me down
to a vault hidden in the ground
and it's looking like i have a little more space to fill... yeah

yeah

washing off a gold chain as blood goes down the drain
in a public bathroom as i reconnect my brain
a feeling deep inside causes me to sigh
it once belonged to a girl named beau

there's a need that drills me down
to a vault hidden in the ground
with the eyes of a wolf its a space that's never full... yeah

i'm a thief i'm a little weak when it comes to things
snatch some spice or a little oil but i'm not from the east
a klepto whore go to a store leave feeling like a rich man
grease my beard with stolen beer twenty rings on one... hand
