From floor to ceiling, I travel your aisles
Fictions, philosophies, in many styles
Driven to own every word ever said
All that I wanted, most left unread
Too clever to get caught, but a fool's life I led
Book thieving

Here is your beauty and here is my crime
A love finger bitten and concealed in rhyme
All corners folded and margins inscribed
An endless unlocking of all that's inside
I'm hopeless but i'm swept away with the tide
Of book thieving

In the poetry section, I will make my selection
Wave security cameras and store detectives

I'm a magician, a sleight of hand star
Deep are my pockets and i'm faster than a car
And if you had seen all the streets that I crossed
Seeking out volumes, forsaking the cost
Then you would know that i really am lost to
Book thieving


from Resonance, released October 31, 2006
