Common Rider – Thief In A Sleeping Town lyrics

Started running just as soon as my feet hit the ground
If I was looking for something
Then it's something that I still haven't found
Saw the modern age lay a generation to waste
But I swore it would never see my back bone break

Ever feel like a thief in a sleeping town
Just like there were dogs trying to track you down
Ever feel like you don't even know what to steal

Saw an emptiness behind the promise of technology
Saw it swallow up souls but it will never drop the freeze on me

Saw the chill of annihilation creep into the young
Saw it go untreated
Saw them stockpiling guns


We're gonna steal back hope from the modern war
