45 Stories – 3. Thief

3. Thief
Fred:
I originally wrote Thief at some point in the early 2000’s. This was the first song written in what I call “Spies Ascend Tuning”. I’m not really sure how I came up with this tuning. Somehow I discovered that tuning the high E down to C made songs in A Minor sound more dissonant. This tuning is used on many other songs as well. Also, Nenner and I jammed on this song in 2006 before we lost touch. I guess you could call this the original Spies Ascend song!
David:
“Thief” is a very straightforward song. It is about how someone can steal your heart, but they may end up stealing a great deal more of you as well.
