"The Thief" came out of an altercation with a close male friend who appeared to want more than just friendship. I reacted the only way I knew how, which was pretty harshly - this came out of my recent breakup from a very long relationship. It's a wound that may never heal, and the wound is invisible to most. "The Thief" actually represents someone or something that happened to me many years before I even had my first relationship. I don't know if anyone understands, but this song is an attempt to express my frustration and my situation.
