Smoke and Mirrors

I had it going my way
Didn’t need any relief
And I couldn’t feel the sting of sin
Tell me why should I believe
If I thought that ya wouldn’t judge me
Maybe then I would listen
It’s my soul that you’re playing with
Why do you condemn me

Now that it’s all so clear
I can see thru your smoke & mirrors
I can’t wait to see when the sword destroys my enemy
And rips these chains from my life and sets me free
This is not a dream, not a fantasy
It’s very real for you & me
Things aren’t what they always seem
Smoke & mirrors

Things aren’t what they always seem
As they become a hazed reflection
You must go on out and clear the smoke
You must shatter all the mirrors

And I thought I knew it all
I thought I knew everything
But now that I have found my maker
There’s only one path that I’ll take
I have learned to throw away
All the filth that leaves me stained
I have choked the burdened world
Why can you let me be

Now that it’s all so clear
I can see thru your smoke & mirrors
I can’t wait to see when the sword destroys my enemy
And rips these chains from my life and sets me free
This is not a dream, not a fantasy
It’s very real for you & me
Things aren’t what they always seem
Smoke & mirrors
