"Deceiver" as written by and Matthew Wentworth....
All of your priorities have disappeared
Lost in the ground
Where you bury your treasure
I abandon the abandoned to a deceiver
And it's just a waste of blood just for you

You put your hands over your eyes
And pretend no one can see you
We can see right past your disguise
So don't waste your time on us

Trade in your fortune for
A lesson in honesty
Fill your mouth with coins
To hide your secrets
The same thing could happen to us
One mistake could mean two soiling years
Our lives and curse will walk this land

You put your hands over your eyes
And pretend no one can see you
We can see right past your disguise
So don't waste your time on us

Where did you go when your leader abandoned you?
Your selfishness is dividing us in two

You put your hands over your eyes
And pretend no one can see you
We can see right past your disguise
So don't waste your time on us
Purge the gold
Tied to your feet
Weigh you down, and keep you under the surface
We need to end this cycle
Before it's to late

    General CommentThis song is talking about liars and how they need to just be honest with themselves and others.

    General CommentYeah, its definitely about liars. To go deeper, it is also how he is fed up with these lies for possessions and money it seems. And also this person has gone so far that, "And its just a waste of blood just for you", it makes me think he has hurt people in the process too and he's lying to himself and everyone else about it. But this person is close to the liar and doesn't wanna see them end up in jail or worse. "One mistake could mean two soiling years".
