lyrics

IT’S A WONDERFUL LIE
Miller/Levy

If I’m alit with candles, let them glow
If I’m acast with darkness, let everyone know

I’m bright with ideas that flicker and shine
Dark as the shutters, and dumb as the blinds

You’re not pretty anymore so don’t pray to that particular god
He can’t hear the whoosh of your hair
And he won’t listen to your vanity prayer

Where were the voices when I needed to
Find something fixable in you?

I don’t blow in the wind like an answer
I’m not singing for a-changing the times
I go slow with the truth ‘cause I know
It’s a wonderful lie

I said “Lord do you reward what’s humble and true?”
He said “Man, I don’t know, what would you do?”

I’m afraid of Zen, that’s my pile of things to attach to
That the wise old master is putting a match to

Door to door bible sales to girls in pajamas
As you give me the “Como se llamas”

It’s your stake I take through my vampire religion
You never knew you were its paradise vision

This is only disappointment, God be praised
My prize is noble but my spirit has not been raised
It’s late to chime in, late to wonder how and why
People change every day - you did, so could I

Every time a bell rings
It's just a fallen angel trying to sell me something
