"The Thief" as written by and Casey Blue Crescenzo....
(Shrouded) criminal and in the fade of myâ?¦
(We must let words go)
Shadow, theyâ??re oblivious
With plans around
(we want)
Who can save us now?

Love seems barren when cash is king
Wealthy for the bleeding, what good will bring
More than I could ask from those who sleep
A crooked mind and honest heart can still agree
Make emâ?? right

Cheating innocence
Iâ??ve got the time to breathe

Tonight

Got time, got time.
I got time, got time.

    General Commenti think it's "love seems bare of meaning when cash is king"

    and "fleeding" should be "fleeting"

    General Commentok my constructive comment is that it is "love seems barren..." but the last time he sings that line, Casey actually says "love seems bare of meaning..."
    So both are right!

    General CommentShrouded
    Criminal
    An innovative mind
    (he was _________??)

    Shadowed
    They're oblivious
    with plans awry
    (he was _________??)

    Who can save us now?

    Love seems barren when cash is king
    Wealth here for the bleeding what good will bring
    More than I could ask from those who sleep
    A crooked mind, an honest heart ancillary
    They collide

    Cheating
    Innocence
    I've got the time tonight

    Tonight x 6

    Got time, got time x 7

    Love seems bare of meaning when cash is king
    Wealth here for the bleeding what good will bring
    Be more than I could ask from those who sleep
    A crooked mind, an honest heart ancillary
    They collide

    the only thing I can't make out is what the background singers are saying after each of the first 2 verses. the first 2 words are either "he was" or "we must" but the next part I can't tell. sounds something like spear and slow, spirits low, miracle, or spiritual, or but none of those make sense at all. A couple other sites have "we must let words go" but I'm pretty sure that's wrong.

    I actually don't have a prob w/ the original poster putting "baron" instead of "barren"; it shows the nice wordplay by Casey to someone who might not catch it, since the song is saying that love < cash. Similarly, a baron < a king.

    Oh and like the guy said above me, the first time it's "love is barren" and the second time it's "love is bare of meaning".

    General CommentI thought it said

    "Shrouded
    Criminal
    An innovative mind
    "We watch spirits move"

    Shadowed
    They're oblivious
    with plans awry
    "We watch spirits move""
