lyrics

You did it right
Captured light
Put it into their
Open eyed arms
Preach with style
Step to side
Joke around
Tell em 'loves in the cards'
Then a man from the wings
Asks some things
Which to answer are hard

Critical light
Undeceived them
Thought you had 'em wrapped up in your charms
Then the audience
Did not receive you
Left you all alone with telephone cards

What’s the truth anyways?
Cause facts can be opaque
Superstition overlays
Most of every all our days

Crystal light
Burns the night
As your tears
Wave the getaway cars

Friends and life
Say goodbye
Oh and why?
Cause you lied about stars
Then that man from the wings
Says some things
Which to swallow are hard
Critical light
Can redeem you
If you listen to the reason with heart
Don't let charlatans
So deceive you
They'll rob blind cause lyins an art

Oh what's the truth today?
That myths outdated anyway
You'll find another one some day
A lie to make your get away

Critical light
Can redeem you
If you listen to the reason with heart
So don't counterfeit
Truth or you will
Trap yourself inside the lies that you start
