I said the jok­er is a want­ed man
he makes his way all across the land
see him sift­ing through the sand

So I’ll tell you all the story
’bout the jok­er and the thief in the night

He’s always laugh­ing in the midst of power
are we liv­ing in the final hour
there is always sweet in sour

So, we are not goin’ home

Can you see the jok­er fly­ing over
as she’s stand­ing in a field of clover
watch­ing out everyday
I won­der what would hap­pen if he took her away

What you see, well you might not know
you get the feel­in’ comin’ after the glow
the vagabond is movin’ slow

So I’ll tell you all the story
’bout the jok­er and the thief in the night

All the peo­ple that you see in the night
hold their dreams up to the light
the wilde­beest is search­ing for sight

We are not goin’ home

Can you see the jok­er fly­ing over
as she’s stand­ing in a field of clover
watch­ing out everyday
I won­der what would hap­pen if he took her away

I said the jok­er is a want­ed man
he makes his way all across the land
see him sift­ing through the sand

So I’ll tell you all the sto­ry ’bout the jok­er and the thief
I said, I’ll tell you all the sto­ry ’bout the jok­er and the thief
I said, I’ll tell you all about the jok­er and the thief in the night
