​The Hands That Thieve

This song is by Toh Kay.

This song is a cover of "The Hands That Thieve" by ​Streetlight Manifesto.
I felt no guilt till I was caught
And I was told that I was guilty
And even then I wasn't really sure, yeah, yeah
The thing I felt was guilt itself
Or maybe it was something else
Frustration at the fact that I was ever caught at all
I told a lie, I multiplied it
By the time I realized it
I'd given up everything I ever loved, yeah, yeah
'Cause the thing you left
When you're looking back
Is the pressure the feel that you have to act
Yeah, everything is clearer
When you're looking at the past
Oh no

And I don't care if I lose
Because my heroes did too
They shouted court should be adjourned
Because the jury are fools
And the judge can't decipher
His left from his right
Or his right from his wrong
And I will bite the hand that thieves
We will not turn the other cheek
This is no threat
It is a promise I will keep
So what's the point pretending
When we've seen behind the curtain
And there's nothing much to see
Oh yeah

I felt no pain till I was down
And I was told that I was bleeding
And even then I knew I wasn't done, yeah, yeah
'Cause the scars I get
They will just collect
Insuring that I won't forget
Reminders of the battles
That I've lost and that I've won
And I will fight until I have died
Or until all my enemies are allies
And even then I will sleep with an open eye, yeah, yeah
'Cause the night is long and our foes are strong
But I know that the road we travel on
It only seems so dark
Because we've almost reached the dawn
Oh no

And I don't care if I lose
Because my heroes did too
They shouted court should be adjourned
Because the jury are fools
And the judge can't decipher
His left from his right
Or his right from his wrong
And I will bite the hand that thieves
I will not turn the other cheek
This is no threat
It is a promise I will keep
So what's the point pretending
When we've seen behind the curtain
And there's nothing much to see
Oh yeah

And everyone will claim
That they knew from the beginning
Exactly how it ends
But they still just went on sinning
The sudden rush you feel
When realizing everything you know
Will fade away, it haunts you deep
But you won't want to let it go
Someday we'll lose the war
But till then we will dream of winning

I won't forget
The things you said
When I was down and I was tired of it
The words you spoke
They brought me hope
When it was time to fight
I chose a side
But I knew in my heart
That something didn't feel right
So we stood my ground
I waited for a sign
And I sang
Oh, I don't care if I lose
Because my heroes did too
They shouted court should be adjourned
Because the jury are fools
And the judge can't decipher
His left from his right
Or his right from his wrong
And I will bite the hand that thieves
I will not turn the other cheek
This is no threat
It is a promise I will keep
So what's the point pretending
When we've seen behind the curtain
And there's
Nothing much to see
