distant lies


distant lies - calling you across the years
their voices loud - kind of loudness no-one hears

grown and twisted out of shape
they're so hard to recognise
but still they point a gun at you
make you be what you despise

distant lies - shallow dreams, confused ideas
once our hopes - now they anchor all our fears

spend your lifetime if you will
searching for the truth below
years of doubt and years of pain
and you still may never know

distant lies
lies of faith, lies of fame
distant lies
lies of love, lies of shame
