The life side of Theif

I'm as quick to pick your pocket as I am to pick your lock
And slip into your picture perfect world just to piss it off
A lot of tricks up my sleeve, yes I mean to rip you off
I leave a lot of empty wallets, all away from which I walk
If you are rich enough, then you oughtta listen up
I'll be quickly stripping you of every single frill and pomp
Just because you are another name upon the list I got
Robbing every prick aristocrat until I hit the top
See, with every breath I take and with every tick and tock
I'm just another step ahead, a vigilante in the dark
I'm the whisper in the wind, the paranoia in your gut
All I know is how to take, so I won't be giving up

I'll never let go of my inner klepto
Cause I've been one ever since the get-go
I have only come here to collect gold
So I thought I'd let you know
I am the darkness, come to creep in
And when you can't sleep, I am the reason
With all the light gone, I can see your demons
You're never safe from me when you're bleeding secrets

Plagues, cults and kings can't even keep up
Can this be real or something that I dreamed up?
These mean streets are greased up with steampunk
Every rooftop's a new spot to free run
In a bleak city that's stripped clean of freedom
And where decency is seen as treason
For these sick people, there's not much that could be done
Honestly, all I could care about is cha-ching (uh)
Homeowners insurance, you're gonna need some
And I won't kill you unless you give me a reason
I mean, please, I am the master thief, son
That's a fact that you might need to sleep on

I'll never let go of my inner klepto
Cause I've been one ever since the get-go
I have only come here to collect gold
So I thought I'd let you know
I am the darkness, come to creep in
And when you can't sleep, I am the reason
With all the light gone, I can see your demons
You're never safe from me when you're bleeding secrets

Don't let the shadows creep in
They'll seek out all your demons
Resurrect your secrets so
Beware of where the dark is deepest
I'm as quick to pick your locks as I am to pick your pockets
I'm not a Robin Hood because I'm only good at robbin'
Should the Baron dare declare war upon me, then I'll drop him
Leave it to the people to knock the nails into his coffin

I'll never let go of my inner klepto
Cause I've been one ever since the get-go
I have only come here to collect gold
So I thought I'd let you know
I am the darkness, come to creep in
And when you can't sleep, I am the reason
With all the light gone, I can see your demons
You're never safe from me when you're bleeding secrets
