Quiet as I watch you falling
You become the prey again
I can see your skin is crawling
Lipstick cases and sins

Wake up Wake up Wake up
You're drowning
Same old song and dance
Wake up Wake up Wake up
My Darling
Never stood a chance

Lost in another one
And it's just so far
An Illusion
It's all just smoke and mirrors
Always chasing scars
Never gets you far
An illusion
It's all just smoke and mirrors

I hear it in her voice, she's stalling
"You were just another man"
Your claims of love are falling
Now it's clear you can't win

Wake up wake up wake up
Heart's pounding
Praying for romance
Wake up wake up wake up
It's sounding
Time to try again

Lost in another one
And it's just so far
An Illusion
It's all just smoke and mirrors
Always chasing scars
Never gets you far
An illusion
It's all just smoke and mirrors

I'd rather be alone
Than put you on a throne
And lose my faith in smoke and mirrors

Black painted eyes
Cover the lies
It's time you threw away your cruel disguise

Lost in another one
Now it's just so far
An illusion
It's all just smoke and mirrors

Always chasing scars
Never gets you far
An illusion
It's all just smoke and mirrors

I'd rather be alone
Than put you on a throne
And lose my faith in smoke and mirrors

    My InterpretationI was told that this was about Andy and Scout's breakup when she had cheated on him. Now I don't know the full story of their breakup just what other people have said, but from what everyone has been saying that's what this song was about.

    Lyric CorrectionIt's supposed to be "Than put you on a throne" not "Than watch you outgrow". Otherwise I think they're correct. :)
