lyrics

SMOKE AND MIRRORS



Disguise
Swift about face
Prone to make the same mistakes
Muscle memory aches
Time and again
Burnt by this same old flame
Just another glutton for pain


Grandstand above the smoke and mirrors
Throw the spotlight inside
In hindsight the vision so much clearer
Lessons learnt in mind at all times
Disguise


As we give chase
To a vice that took our place
The price of illusions taste
Time and again
The enemy that we befriend
Filtered through a blinkered lens


Attempt to fool all with the smoke and mirrors
Perfect in every way
Cast the lime light up upon the favoured
And mask the rotten soil that you tend
That you tend

Completely entranced by disambiguation
Fraudulent distorted reflections
The new reality


Grandstand above the smoke and mirrors
Throw the spotlight inside
In hindsight the vision that much clearer
Lessons learnt in mind at all times
At all times
