Petty Thieves

Last night on the street
In some shady part of town
I think there was a church involved
There was a mugging going on

A thief had crept up from behind
And stole a good man's mind
He believes in a prophet now
Looks for something he can't find

Last week when the sun was high
In some crowded bit of park
I think there was a ball involved
They stole a good boy's heart

A thief had crept up from behind
The innocent tears to stop
The boy has got a new game now
The game of growing up

Even a petty thief
Can steal much more than you can give
They steal your every sense away
A petty thief
Will steal your make-believe
And you already feel much colder than yesterday
