You're lying to yourself
Twisting your arm
You're lying to yourself

You're lying to yourself
Borrowing dreams
You're lying to yourself

You're lying to yourself
Making good impressions
You're lying to yourself

You're lying to yourself
In self-deception
You're lying to yourself

Taken over
Taking over
Taken over
Taking over
Taken over
You're taking over
Taking over
You've been taken over

Plagued by fear
Plagued by fear
They're plagued by fear
Plagued by fear
They're putting their heads in mirror-lined boxes

Plagued by fear
Plagued by fear
They're plagued by fear
Plagued by fear
They're putting their heads in mirror-lined boxes

You're lying to yourself
Telling tall tales
You're lying to yourself

You're lying to yourself
Being so complacent
You're lying to yourself

You're lying to yourself
Not a bad intention
You're lying to yourself

You're lying to yourself
In self-deception
You're lying to yourself

Taken over
Taking over
Taken over
You're taking over
Taken over
You've been taken over
Taking over
You're taking over

Taking over
You're taking over
Taken over
You've been taken over

Plagued by fear
Plagued by fear
They're plagued by fear
Plagued by fear
They're putting their heads in mirror-lined boxes

Plagued by fear
Plagued by fear
They're plagued by fear
Plagued by fear
They're putting their heads in mirror-lined boxes

They're putting their heads in mirror-lined boxes

    General CommentFavorite song from "Why Bother?" bar Harvest.

    I get the impression that it'd to do with "the masses" who just sit back and allow wrongs to happen.
    The "putting their heads in mirror-lined boxes" line, seems to be relating to these people just sitting back and thinking about themselves, rather than seeing the bigger picture and doing something to help change the world for others.
