Thief, of silent dreams
Of golden scenes
Stole away

All, it was in me
It wasn't me
Who slipped away

Now I stand with skin and bones
Without a dime to call my home
Only a voice to tell you
Thief, you've taken all that was me

Rain, It laughed so hard
It cried on me
You rain on me

Cleanse, cleanse my soul
The soul to be
The me to be

Now I stand with skin and bones
Without a dime to call my home
Only a voice to scream at you

Now I stand with skin and bones
Without a dime to call my home
Only a voice to scream at you
Thief, you've taken all that was me
Thief, you've taken all that was me
Thief, you've taken all that was me
Thief, you've taken all that was me

Now I stand with skin and bones
Without a dime to call my home
Only a voice to scream at you
Thief, you've taken all that was me
Thief, you've taken all that was me
Thief, you've taken all that was me

    General CommentFavorite Kitchen Tape!

    Anyways, this is definitely about a break up.The girl is the Thief,
    "Thief, of silent dreams
    Of golden scenes"

    And after the incident, she's all that he thinks about and he gets weaker, physically and emotionally, thus:
    "Thief, you've taken all that was me"

    Thats my take
