jewel theives
jewel theives
leave their fingerprints on everything
jewel theives
jewel theives
but around here
around here
we never dust for finger prints

snake oil peddlers
snake oil peddlers
we can spot them half a mile away
snake oil
peddlers
we can spot them half a mile away
but these days
these days
we drink a lot of snake oil

adulterers
adulterers
always give themselves away
adulterers
adulterers
always give themselves away
but down here around here
where the moose run wild
and we can't think clearly
we let them off pretty easy

    General CommentAaaah I love this song. I'm not sure I fully understand what he's saying with these three examples...that we know what's going on, but we don't really care. Oh, we could catch you if we wanted, it's just not that important to us.

    General Commentthe point i've gleaned, especially after considering the relationship of the title to the lyrics, is that his wife has left with someone else, and he just wants her to come back. he's willing to forgive her and not have it be a big deal, he just wants her to come back. he's pretty blase about the injustices in his life.
