"fool's gold" as written by and Rocky Votolato....
like dead leaves floating on by river water
your voice was carried by the current under the surface
and held those whispers down until you suffocated the sound
of any voice _ and i wasn't here listening
caught chasing a fool's gold
chasing a fool's gold

everybody knows that illusion is a prison
leave it underground where you found it
a fool's gold
leave it alone

like looking for the moon in the water reflection
or looking for the truth in a whole new translation
the moonlight is shining in the sky
and the keys hide behind your eyes
you reached out for the smoke
you tried to hope
it's a broken mirror; it's disappeared
it's a fool's gold
chasing a fool's gold
chasing a fool's gold

what you do with your time is screaming so loud
i can't hear a single word that comes out of your mouth
i couldn't see that hook hiding under the shining moon
caught chasing a fool's gold
chasing a fool's gold
chasing a fool's gold

the poison in the honey tasted so sweet
chasing a fool's gold
but this thing is deadly; nothing is quite what it seems
chasing a fool's gold
the poison in the honey tasted so sweet.
