Everybody's looking for a platform
To vent their version of right
And everybody's looking for some closure
To put all the nightmares behind
So everybody's looking for an audience
With the bright lights that they bring
And everybody's looking for an exit
But nobody sees a goddamn thing but

Dark eyes behind a bright smile
Aglow with the lies of kindness
There's nothing to be afraid of

Everybody's looking for a savior
To salve the wounds incurred
And everybody's looking for clarity
To make sense of the prophet's words
Everybody's looking for something
But only some know what to find
So everybody's looking for a purpose
But nobody checks to see behind those

Dark eyes behind a bright smile
Aglow with the lies of kindness
There's nothing to be afraid of

When they find out you're going to burn at the stake
Pulling the wool over doubtful eyes
Won't be as easy as earlier times
The world has changed, your image is stained
And no evidence will make the hounds stay away

You're gonna go down, you're gonna fall down
You're gonna come tumbling down
It's over now, superseded no doubt
Enough of you leading us all astray
Astray
