The Hands That Thieve Lyrics - Streetlight Manifesto

Review The Song (0)



I felt no guilt till I was caught
And I was told that I was guilty
And even then I wasn't really sure (yeah yeah)
The thing I felt was guilt itself
Or maybe it was something else
Frustration at the fact that I was ever caught at all
I told a lie I multiplied it
By the time I realized it
I’d given up everything I ever loved (yeah yeah)
Cause the thing you left
When you're looking back
Is the pressure the feel that you have to act
Yeah everything is clearer when
You’re looking at the past (oh no)

[Chorus:]
And I don’t care if I lose
sponsored links
Because my heroes did too
They shouted court should be adjourned
Because the jury are fools
And the judge can’t decipher his left from his right
Or his right from his wrong
And we will bite the hand that thieves
We will not turn the other cheek
This is no threat
It is a promise we will keep
So what's the point pretending
When we sit behind the curtain
And there's nothing much to see
Oh yeah

I felt no pain till I was found
And I was told that I was bleeding
And even then I knew I wasn’t done (yeah yeah)
Cause the wounds I get
They will just collect
Insuring that I won’t forget
Reminders of the battles
That I've lost and that I’ve won
And I will fight until I have died
Or all my enemies are allies
And even then I will sleep with an open eye (yeah yeah)
Cause the night is long and our hooves are strong
And I know the road we travel on
It always seems so dark
Because we've almost reached the dawn
Oh no

[Chorus]

And everyone will claim
That they knew from the beginning
That what they did was wrong
They still just went on sinning

The sudden rush you feel
When realizing everything you know
Will fade away
It haunts you deep
But you won’t want to let it go
Someday we'll lose the war
But till then we will dream of winning

I won’t forget
The things you said
When I was down and I was tired of it
The words you spoke
They brought me hope
When it was time to fight
We chose a side
But everyone knew that something didn't feel right
So we stood our ground
And waited for a sign

When it was time to fight
We chose a side
But everyone knew that something didn't feel right
So we stood our ground
And waited for a sign

You said don't look back
(No, no, no, no...)
Don’t look down
(Don’t look back
We won't go down
We’ve come too far
We’re too high off the ground
The wheels have turned
The lessons learned)

You said don't look back
Don’t look down
