Mind, filled with fairytales, New ones every day, Don´t ask me anything
now, I know what you´re waiting the Curtain to fall

Names don´t mean anything, hear the lady sing, all human rights are now
cancelled, you need to handle the dreams of the day

You´ve hurt them many times, why apologize, they were the ones who were
wrong, what are they waiting? Give them a vail

Oh, be my valentine?, play along with an angel with silver tongue, play
with a stranger

I never saw anything so white, call me Ishmael, if it ain´t a lie
I am blinded by your revealing smile, I can only be guilty of an
innocent try
You think you are right, in a way, It is something I hear every day

I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos
Life is a play you star on, to you it´s all a game

Why can´t I leave today, and escape your funny ways, you are a one
person riot, far in the horizon, done for the day

I outsmart you, I am wise, I defeat you any way I like, but you got
me forced into a fall, I am your slave, down on the floor?

I never saw anything so white, call me Ishmael, if it ain´t a lie
I am blinded by your revealing smile, I can only be guilty of an
innocent try
You think you are right, in a way, It is something I hear every day

I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos
Life is a play you star on, to you it´s all a game of chaos
I do feel stronger now, Why am I still here with you
You and your silver tongue, why do I still play with you

I never saw anything so white, call me Ishmael, if it ain´t a lie
I am blinded by your revealing smile, I can only be guilty of an
innocent try
You think you are right, in a way, It is something I hear every day

I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos
Life is a play you star on, to you it´s all a game of chaos
I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos
Life is a play you star on, to you it´s all a game you play with me

    General CommentI think the whole album has a theme of loss. In this case, the singer ;oses his control over himself, as shown by the lines "I do feel stronger now, Why am I still here with you
    You and your silver tongue, why do I still play with you". Also, at the end, "to you it´s all a game you play with me".

    General CommentI think it's about someone who acts like he doesn't care about anything or anyone - He (or she) can hurt them, but it means nothing for him.
    "all human rights are now
    cancelled, you need to handle the dreams of the day.
    You´ve hurt them many times, why apologize, they were the ones who were
    wrong, what are they waiting? Give them a vail"
    The man in the song thinks the one whom is the song about lives in some kind of fictional story he has built for himself ("Mind, filled with fairytales, New ones every day, Don´t ask me anything
    now, I know what you´re waiting the Curtain to fall") but he can't understand that way of living ("I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos
    Life is a play you star on, to you it´s all a game").
    Either way, he himself evaluates the truth and is angry on the other person, but still can't leave him.

    General CommentI agree this song is about "lies" but looking deeper, there are lines that could suggest the Soviet Union, and Communism.

    For example: "you´re waiting the Curtain to fall"

    General Commenti really doubt SA would write a song that reffers to SSSR, but still, an excellent theory

    General Commenti think it's about a man who's serious, hard working, and thinks about things in a logical way . he meets a girl who is an eccentric daydreamer. her innocent, playful nature bothers him.he and this woman do not belong together, but he cannot help but fall in love with her. he tries to forget about her but it is no use and in the end up being together.

    General CommentI think its about a man who its very smart, bright or whatever. He meets a girl completely self-centered and narcissistic but not so intelligent. I think the lines"Life is a play you star on, to you it´s all a game" mean that.

    "You´ve hurt them many times, why apologize, they were the ones who were wrong" She doesnt bother apologizing because she think she's always right. The man can help but fall at first sight but he discover the truth behind that "pretty" appearance "you are a one
    person riot, far in the horizon"...

    General CommentIts about someone who lies and is nonchalant, and someone who is serious and tells noting but the truth.
    For example, the line:
    "I never saw anything so white, call me Ishmael, if it ain�t a lie"
    White, meaning a white lie. And I beleive the line is actually "Call me Ishmael, if he didn't lie".

    Also, Someone with a silver tongue is someone that is a good lier.
