lyrics

Everyone knows ‘cept yourrself that these phases are fleeting
time to take stock
and face up to the path life is leading

watching your eyes with your eyes
and seeing through death’s disguise

every awake finds the wake of the black water breaking

watching your eyes with your eyes
and seeing through beauty’s disguise

life is a game
when you win you begin to start losing
you fight to get by
to grow old
and then die alone with nothing

but watching my eyes with my eyes
seeing through death’s disguise

photographs end
and here come your friends

in the abyss you feel tenderly kissed and unaching
and there’s no appeal to seek out the next one to forsake you

‘cept when i watch your eyes
and see through your lies

love is a game
when you win you begin to start losing
and all that remains
is an old set of plans that’s abandoned

reel turns around and I play the clown

get out my life and let me be
leave me free to leave me free
looking ahead with no backward glances
