The Lyrics

You're shakin' from your habit so you head out the front door fast
Cos' you got to pilfer something just to pay for your next stash
But you wouldn't need 200 flashlights if they weren't easy to sell
All the neighbors get a discount and you get your coke as well

Are you stealing things from Sears?
Bein' master of crime?
Soon it will all turn into tears
And you'll be doing hard time
Are you stealing things from Sears?
Sneakin' around the mall?
Have you made this your career?
Don't you know you're bound to fall?

You've been telling me you were pilfering since you were a shaver
You show up at my front door to sell me a screwdriver
The weekend at the lockup wasn't part of your grand plan
Though you didn't mind it much - there you met your Man

Are you stealing things from Sears?
Bein' master of crime?
Soon it will all turn into tears
And you'll be doing hard time
Are you stealing things from Sears?
Sneakin' around the mall?
Have you made this your career?
Don't you know you're bound to fall?

You've saved a lot of money and you've nicked a lot of food
The things you stole from WalMart spread through the neighborhood
After you collect your foodstamps then you bargain with the hope
That you'll trade them all for money and you'll buy your dope

Are you stealing things from Sears?
Bein' master of crime?
Soon it will all turn into tears
And you'll be doing hard time
Are you stealing things from Sears?
Sneakin' around the mall?
Have you made this your career?
Don't you know you're bound to fall?
