Smoke and Mirrors

He said she said that something that was said
To somebody from somebody was in somebody’s head
And you and I are objects of deceit
I have something to tell you that I really can’t repeat

It’s all unclear; I’m wrapped up in the fray
So many sounds surround me and I’m not sure what to say
The wolves are out, they dance between the trees
And underneath their howling are the whispers in the breeze

The feelings out, the word it is in and narrow minds dictate the day
As hollow voices seize our thoughts and smoke and mirrors guide the way
This bitterness consuming as our blurring vision fades away
With cloak and dagger creeping into all the choices that we made

This day’s betrayed, I’m lost inside my mind
And finding myself doubting that the truth is there to find
As now I seek remains of my retreat
My tired eyes survey the broken bones beneath my feet

The feelings out, the word it is in and narrow minds dictate the day
As hollow voices seize our thoughts and smoke and mirrors guide the way
This bitterness consuming as our blurring vision fades away
With cloak and dagger creeping into all the choices that we made

I’ve been too scared to mention with all the best intentions
I don’t want to reveal these things I bring to your attention
I’d hate to think you don’t believe this information I receive
I say to you in confidence, don’t get the wrong impression

The feelings out, the word it is in and narrow minds dictate the day
As hollow voices seize our thoughts and smoke and mirrors guide the way
This bitterness consuming as our blurring vision fades away
With cloak and dagger creeping into all the choices that we made

He said she said that something that was said
To somebody from somebody was always in my head
The wolves are out, they dance between the trees
And underneath their howling are the whispers in the breeze

The feelings out, the word it is in and narrow minds dictate the day
As hollow voices seize our thoughts and smoke and mirrors guide the way
This bitterness consuming as our blurring vision fades away
With cloak and dagger creeping into all the choices that we made
