Liars
shape my frown
i see through you words
stone done like a hound
liars
faceless clowns
i see through your herds
all swimming to the shore

picaroon you come so soon
youve taken all i had
my tolerance echausted
pain a picture only using

lying to the faces that make you
a less lonesome man
picturing a way of life where fear
and hate could not appear
can it be? this life to lead. Well nothing seems to clear

whar are we doing here?
swamped in fear
what are we doing here?
fear
brings death. brings fear
what are we doing here?

five thousand more lies are laying in
the mist
not suitably equipped
lesson of the day you grey betray
lesson of the day lesson of the day
of the day
you only betray you only betray
lesson of the day
you only betray you only betray

was it a so called man. with a so
cold plan
well i dont want to be another
television lamb, television lamb
television lamb

fear (brings death brings fear)
what are we doing here?
swamped in fear
what are we doing here?
fear
brings us death and then that makes
more fear
is this how its mean to be for you
and me?

lying to my face again you never
found yourself

somthing telling me that things may have
gone too far
warning the next hell ball in your
quagmire

fear of the, fear of the fear of the
fear of the fear of the feare of the
fear of the fear of the fear of the
fear
picturing the ship you sank
try to make me walk the plank

picaroon you come so soon
youve taken all i had
my tolerence now exhausted
paint a picture only using

lying to the faces that make you a
less lonesome man
picturing a way of life where fear and
hate could not appear
can it be? this life to lead well
nothign seems too clear

what are we doing here? swamped in fear
what are we doing here?
fear
brings us death and then makes
mor fear
is this how its meant to be?

    My OpinionAbsolutely incredible drumming in this song. I love how he intersperses those certain cymbals (I have no idea what they're called but they sound awesome) throughout this song.

    General CommentMind blowing song.... For me it perfectly and beautifully captures the deep feeling of seperation and insecurity we suffer from as a society.

    It seems to be about someone on TV, or a politician perhaps, feeling the hollowness and confusion for lying and living a constantly false life. - "Lying to the faces that make you a less lonesome man". And on a deeper level, breaking down and questioning existence itself - "What are we doing here, swamped in fear?", "Is this how it's meant to be?" The sinking ship appears to be the man himself.

    For me, the whole song just brilliantly captures the confusion of existing at all, and the resulting fear and corruption in society. Amazing music and lyrics.

    General CommentI agree about this song being about Politicians and empty promises. The lyrics oddly seem to encapsulate my feelings towards Brexit... And 12 years before it happened...
