Waste a smile, waste an afternoon, waste a while just waiting.
Watch the thief follow the aftermath, wasting time just hanging round.
Waste an hour, watch the shadows rolling, watch the thief go walking by.
I'm sure there's always going to be foot marks and fingerprints.
I'm sure there's always going to be thieves and liars, robbers and cheats.
I'm sure there's always going to be eyes in the darkness.
I'm sure there's always going to be thieves and liars.
From me to you.
Waste an hour, waste an afternoon, watch the thief go walking by.
