Lyrics

I held up a liquor store / Demanded top-shelf metaphors / With a sinner’s smile and open arms / Drop a line to charm the silent alarm / Heard neutral angels call the cops / They’ll be choosing sides when the fighting stops / Polizie in the cabaret / While we six kings made our getaway / Thick as thieves / On our knees / With an ocean in between / Laughter in the darkness / I heard whispers in the shadows / I was there when the wall fell down / I'll be there when the ocean rises / Building castles with cans and bottles / Drinking like they do in novels / I know they’ll get me by and by / But tonight you are my alibi / The same old sun that we all come from / Faded stars in the air that we breath, in the earth, in the sea / Thick as thieves / On our knees / With an ocean in between
