Thieves

Incubus



You're happy all the time
 I just don't understand why I can't be happy too
 Your smiles are salt in the wound
 A slap upon a back that's been toiling in the sun
 
When will I get mine?
 Or must I be a god-fearing, white american?
 Oh everything is fine
 As long as you're a god-fearing, white american
 
Why should the thieves have all of the fun?
 Selling us water by the river, they don't speak for everyone
 I'm ready to run and you're making me crawl
 Selling me water by the river, they don't speak for me at all
 
The man about the town
 The beauty queen, the paragon of civilization
 But shadows cling to us all
 Even those convinced that they're sheltered and immune
 
When will I get mine?
 Or must I be a god-fearing, white american?
 
Why should the thieves have all of the fun?
 Selling us water by the river, they don't speak for everyone
 I'm ready to run and you're making me crawl
 Selling me water by the river, they don't speak for me at all
