Lyrics

We’re so lost now,
We’re so gone now
We’re breaking in
Into houses of the people
We thought we’re in bed with
For the long haul
But now it’s a thing
The clashes of the classes
And they’re asking

Have you seen me
On the cover of a magazine?
And we’re smiling, smiling wide
Take a look around

The burglars are back in town
And we’re taking our money now
If you insist on keeping your crown
We’re ripping those diamonds out

We’re so cross now
But we’re straight now
They know they’re up
’Gainst the real crowd
Not the breakdown
Of their quarterly crops
We’re not sorry, we just worry
’Bout the next few months
We’re lying to our babies
And that’s why we’ve come

Have you seen us?
Do we look like giving up?
And we’re smiling
Yeah, we’re smiling wide
Take a look around

The burglars are back in town

Maria and Luis
Kimberly and Steve
Amina and Rashid
People I’ve never seen

All over the city streets
Beautiful anarchy
No-one needs to bleed
Just money being freed

Take a look around
The burglars are back in town
’Cause what’s theirs was always ours
