Look Left

Album: Evil Spirits (2018)
  • Scary dead time stories
    Old Glory's flying proud
    Fists are raised in triumph
    While heads are in the sand
    Subterfuge and fantasy
    Played only to ignite
    While everybody's looking left
    What the hell is happening right?
    What the hell is happening right?

    Somebody tell me the truth
    Now youth never waits for anyone
    So let's unmask the charade
    Our time in the shade has overrun
    Though the dying blooms evade the sun
    I'll wait for you

    Masterful illusions
    Digital magicians
    Guided by the hidden hand
    Lies become the facts
    Writers in a wrong world
    By shackles they are bound
    Censorship is slavery
    History has found

    Freedom of the mind
    Is freedom of the soul
    Fear is an impediment
    A fear you shouldn't hold
    The decks are duly loaded
    But till we force their hands
    It's a dark romance

    Somebody tell me the truth
    Now youth never waits for anyone
    So let's unmask the charade
    Our time in the shade has overrun
    Though the dying blooms evade the sun
    I'll wait for you

    While everybody's looking left
    What the hell is happening right?
    While everybody's looking left
    What the hell is happening right?
    While everybody's looking left
    What the hell is happening right?
    While everybody's looking left

    Somebody tell me the truth
    Now youth never waits for anyone
    So let's unmask the charade
    Our time in the shade has overrun
    Though the dying blooms evade the sun
    I'll wait for you Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
