Reflaugh (Song) The First God

"Thief" is track four on the Hungry Lights studio album "Three Gods & Me." Remember that this is a summary, not the entire story! It is like 10% of what is actually going on—just the skeleton. It is a rough translation of what is literally going on in the lyrics. There is also a figurative story that is taking place at the same time which goes much deeper and does not involve the fictional character Prill, but that is up to you to find :) It is much easier to discover the hidden meaning when you grasp a decent understanding of the literal meaning first. These are your puzzle pieces, and I highly suggest you study them before pursuing the next albums in the sequence, otherwise emotion and information will be lost, therefore connections will be missed!

Story Edit

Lyrics Edit

All the fear that I felt dismantled

Everybody’s looking—all eyes are me,

But we’re unsure if I was different than before

I felt different, but I just couldn’t place my finger on it

-Couldn’t look to the mirror

Naw, man—didn’t like what it showed

Covered up—so to run from the criticism

I covered up til’ my way out closed


Now I shine with a glint of madness

So dark I will not be denied


And so the beatings began

Don’t look to me

Don’t act surprised!

Deception had been unraveled

Took the time to tell myself the lie

I wouldn’t trust me… not one bit


‘Cause I shine with a glint of madness

So dark I will not be denied

And your sight’s been lost for too long


A dangerous fool, or was it superstition?

A thief was caught tonight,

And I’m just here to make that noticed

How’d half blood stain my hands?

Would I see it wash away?

Nothing’s forever,

But I guess I was just looking for remorse


Errors have showed me

That the more I hide, the more you seek

I wasn’t one to hesitate...

Maybe I just felt empty

Maybe I couldn’t feel at all!


I don’t think any words of kindness

Could repent all the crimes I’d committed

No, my sight’s been lost for too long


A dangerous fool, or was it superstition?

A thief was caught tonight,

And I’m just here to make that noticed

How’d half blood stain my hands?

Would I see it wash away?

Nothing’s forever,

But I guess I was just looking for remorse


Bless you all with godspeed

May this be an eventful evening full of smiles


I can’t help it,

I just think it’s funny

No one is synchronized

Maybe I believe that the heavens never had our backs

We’re done—no, it’s over

Three gods entered inside the realm

Deep within my head,

I could have found peace

I could have found all things I’d ever longed for


It’s uncanny, yea…

But that’s how I present myself

No stealth, I just straight-up lie

‘Cause I ain’t looking for no means to escape

No, the noose on my neck holds tight—my fault

Time was sick, and I’m quick

Inside the pit, the pendulum flipped

I couldn’t find me the will to lift me

Look, Ma, I’m under the spotlight!


And Mrs. Humble, I know you see me shine

It’s not the way that you wanted me to

-The way could make things brighter

But Mrs. Humble, I know you see me shine!

It’s not the way that you wanted me to,

But with a glint of madness that peeks out from these

eyes


A dangerous fool, or was it superstition?

A thief was caught tonight,

And I’m just here to make that noticed

How’d half blood stain my hands?

Would I see it wash away?

Nothing’s forever,

But I guess I was just looking for remorse
