About the song
Eugenides is a thief who establishes a queen's throne, outwits her enemies, and generally causes witty mayhem wherever he goes...and then falls into the clutches of a rival queen. Exacting the traditional punishment, she cuts off his right hand.
The motif of stealing as a metaphor is particularly acute in "The Queen of Attolia"; probably because (rather than "in spite of") the fact that he is greatly incapacitated physically.
This is only the beginning of the story: the rest fans know and other readers should go discover.

This is my first lyric for a fandom I ardently support, and I think it turned out almost the way I wanted it--and probably way better for that slight difference.
Lyrics
Queen's Thief, made a cripple
Am I going blind, too?
What is this life for, that I don't die?
They're dying over it out there, and here she comes
Steal me peace, steal me time

Gods double-cross me
An honor I could do without
I'm reaching for something
Though it took my hand off...

Oxe Habrea Sacrus Vax Dragga

All I can think of is her cruel face
The lips that ordered my fate
Let me come in to your Thief
We're square, now you've stolen something of mine
Stole my peace, my peace of mind

Eyes never killing me
Why are we here014what do we want?
I reached for you
With the hand that is gone...

Oxe Habrea Sacrus Vax Dragga

I can steal anything
What if I stole you?
From your enemies, stole your throne, too
Steal you to peace,
Steal you to be mine
