they hover with their holy lights
and begin to stir the skies
going down through swift clouds

yes: they can hover with their holy lights
and began to stir the skies
going down through swift clouds

this time: we'll let them take us
oh hell, why not let them break us?
for they must be: the holiest of thieves

whoa! hey stop!
look around look around
are we the only ones crazy enough?

whoa! hey stop!
look around look around
are we the only ones giving up?

whoa! hey stop!
if this is love then don't put up a fight, don't put up a fight

whoa! hey stop!
look around look around
are we the only ones crazy enough


i hope this looks like love

this time we'll let them take us
oh hell, why not let them break us?
this time we'll let them take us
oh hell, why not let them break us?
for they must be, the holiest of theives

we'll just let them take us
for they must be, the holiest of theives

take us now
and cut our shaking fists off, at the wrist
break us now
and burn a hole right through us, with a kiss

with your kiss
for we hope
that this is what loves looks like
for they must be the holiest of theives

whoa! hey! stop!
whoa! hey! stop!
whoa! hey! stop!
look around look around
whoa! hey! stop!
this time
whoa! hey! stop!
looka looka
whoa! hey! stop!

    General Commentsome people understand love more than others, but for some reason the ones who seem to actually understand love are the ones who seem to be wrong. the ones who actually love don't usually put a fight unless it REALLY becomes a necessity, they're usually the giving, accepting, understanding, peaceful ones - yet in the song the ones who seem to be trying to do all the "fixing" are the "holy thieves." They seem to always have a need to break and fix everything - notice it wasn't broken to begin with.

    The ones with love offer everything in the end to try to show love to the holy thieves, even down to the last bit, offering them to cut off their shaking fists, (burn a hole right through us with a kiss [possibly a reference to Judas Iscariot]) and in the end - giving up their very lives. The whole time all they were doing was trying to show love. I could go on forever. Great song. Album slightly confusing - which saddens me. Seems like they slightly gave in to being the "intricate" band and their lyrics seem to get lost in that a little. I'd rather head a song and get the point and find a deeper meaning later than listen to it - read the lyrics - and then be like what? And waste my time like a grandfather clock.
