Thick as Thieves

from by Jesse Stockton



This is a statement I use as a term of endearment for my friends to let them know the depth of my love for them, and this song is about to brothers fighting opposite sides of the Civil War and coming home to one another to rebuild their old life and be brothers again. I love the imagery the sounds lend at the very end as though the birds don't mind if we simple people kill one another.
