WHERE ARE THE THIEVES?
They've seen them around here
They've seen them on the rooves
Giving back in Paris
Convicting in the courts
With the powdered nose
In a tie or in blue jeans
They've seen them everywhere
Without anything else to say
Where are the thieves
Where is the murderer
Perhaps there flailing
In the neighbor's patio
And what happens if they are
And what happens if i am
The one who plays this guitar
Or the one who sings this song
The one who sings this song
They've seen them on their knees
Sitting or squating
Stopped giving lessons
In all the positions
Preaching in the churches
Until offering concerts
They've seen them in all the bars
Distributing ministeries
Where are the thieves
Where is the murderer
Perhaps there flailing
In the neighbor's patio
And what happens if they are
And what happens if i am
The one who plays this guitar
Or the one who sings this song
The one who sings this song

    Where would be the thieves? Where can they be hiding
    perhaps in paris
    wearing blue jeans in cordoba
    lying under a trash can
    eating rusted apple seen
    laughing hard not giving a damn
    cz they know
    where are the thieves? Where the hack
    some times i hear roars
    very bad human music
    i believe that they are here
    with a guitar singing
    maybe me singing with guitar
