I'm hiding inside me
Eye sees through my smile
As I shine
For the eyes of another

Let him inscribe
What he admires
Let him inspire
So many lies
I can provide
Any disguise

Night folds me beside you
I hide from your eyes
For I know
This illusion is kinder
Than what you'll find
If I reveal
My crime

My deception
My invention
My obsession

You may despise
What you may find
Hiding behind
All of the lies
Let me provide
One more disguise

You won't understand me
I can't let you try
Still I dream
Of the day you discover

I am the spy

    Staying together with someone you don't really love? Either way, this and Ocean are the best tracks off Spooky !

    Seems like someone willing to be whatever t'other person wants, happily assuming other facets of a totally false identity, never ever revealing the truth... Why? That I've no idea... having been watching The Americans recently the spy motif is definitely apt... By far one of (if not the) best tracks off a truly remarkable album !!!!
