I have the mirrors, one for each of you
I reserve the absolute: I always tell the truth
all that I can see: reflections in your eyes
I am postulate one: I always lie

as above is not so below
spider webs, dotted lines hold all I behold
driven like a suicide through a noose of hope
alibi's demystified hold on..., and let go

CHORUS

... yes
take me with you
I want to belong
show me something
I need to be wrong
tell me all of
your favorite lies
warm me with your
illusory fires
fires...
lies...

CHORUS:
Driven... like suicide
Headfirst against the tide
Driven... like a suicide
Headlong into the night

    General CommentBathe me with your filth of "culture"-scented marketing, your "freedom"-scented scum of lobbying, and ubiquitous grime of grift and cronyism, and I'll tell you what you want to hear - that it was refreshing and invigorating rather than repulsive and revolting - but only when saying so will get me in your circle.

    If you're an asshole, then you know it -- no matter how you try to rationalize it to yourself that you're just ambitious and driven compared to the rest of the rabble. And once you figure out how to dump your own bathwater of disinformation and disenfranchisement on everyone below you, you'll do it too; or otherwise just end up back on the receiving end.
