"Thick As Thieves" as written by and Sergio Pizzorno....
There we were thick as thieves
Frightened by shadows and the autumn leaves
We wore stolen hearts, vintage souls
Aided by lies amongst the media foes

And hey ho
Where did it go?
When did we lose our sight?
And it's a nice show
The ones we perform
Performing them day and night
Night

See the lines upon my face
Walking circles with the human race
And all the little people
They want to be free
But I can't get there
Cause I got you holding me back

And hey ho
Where did it go?
When did we lose our sight?
And it's a nice show
The ones we perform
Performing them day and night
Night

Let me be free

La la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la

Gave you all the high skies
But you gave me night
I gave you all the high skies
But you gave me night, yeah
I gave you all the high skies
But you gave me night
I gave you all the high skies
But you gave me night
Let the lights sing again

There we were thick as thieves
Frightened by shadows and the autumn leaves

Goodbye my sweet
Goodbye
Goodbye

    General CommentThere we were, thick as thieves, frightened by shadows and in the autumn leaves.
    We wore stolen hearts, vintage souls, aided by lies amongst the media foes

    And hey ho, where did we go?
    When do we lose our sight?
    And it's a nice show
    The ones we perform,
    Performing them day and Night.
    Night.

    See the lights upon my face, walking in circles with the human race
    And all the little people, they want to be free, but I can't get there cause I've got you holding me back.

    And hey ho
    Where did it go?
    When did we lose our sight?
    And it's a nice show
    The ones we perform
    Performing them day and night.
    Night.

    Let me be free

    La lalala la lalala
    la lalala la la la la
    La lalala la lalala
    la lalala la la la la

    I Gave you all of your scars
    but you gave me mine.
    I Gave you all of your scars
    but you gave me mine. Yeah
    I Gave you all of your scars
    but you gave me mine.
    I Gave you all of your scars
    but you gave me mine.

    Let the lights sing again

    There we were thick as theives
    Frightened by shadows and the autumn leaves

    Goodbye my sweet
    Goodbye
    Goodbye

    General Commenthere are some corrections:

    "Aided by lies amongst the media foes" not "aided by lies among..."

    "The ones we perform" not "The one we perform"

    "Performing them day and night
    Night" not "performing it day and night."

    AFTER "you holding me back":

    And hey ho
    Where did it go?
    When did we lose our sight?
    And it's a nice show
    The ones we perform
    Performing them day and night
    Night.

    Let me be free

    La lalala la lalala
    la lalala la la la la
    La lalala la lalala
    la lalala la la la la

    Gave you all the high skies
    But you gave me night
    I gave you all the high skies
    But you gave me night, yeah
    I gave you all the high skies
    But you gave me night
    I gave you all the high skies
    But you gave me night
    Let the lights sing again

    There we were thick as theives
    Frightened by shadows and the autumn leaves

    Goodbye my sweet
    Goodbye
    Goodbye
