  • <b>THIEVES</b> by <i>Incubus</i>You're happy all the time
    I just don't understand why I can't be happy too
    Your smiles are salt in the wound
    A slap upon a back that's been toiling in the sun

    When will I get mine?
    Or must I be a god-fearing, white american?
    Oh everything is fine
    As long as you're a god-fearing, white american

    Why should the thieves have all of the fun?
    Selling us water by the river, they don't speak for everyone
    I'm ready to run and you're making me crawl
    Selling me water by the river, they don't speak for me at all

    The man about the town
    The beauty queen, the paragon of civilization
    But shadows cling to us all
    Even those convinced that they're sheltered and immune

    When will I get mine?
    Or must I be a god-fearing, white american?

    Why should the thieves have all of the fun?
    Selling us water by the river, they don't speak for everyone
    I'm ready to run and you're making me crawl
    Selling me water by the river, they don't speak for me at all Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
