lyrics

NOTHING'S EVER AS IT SEEMS
(e.fischer)

a poker playing relic in a flying machine
plants another saint in the lost and found
aimless and stupid, deceitful and mean
he digs another hole into the dessicated ground

yeah, that’s him, bonjour, welcome to the head
of an insect mimicking the voices of the dead
if you listen real careful, and get as close as you can get
he’ll let you autograph, the medals on his chest

permit me a small interjection
if you will, an introspection injection
won’t hurt too much, just sting a bit
cut the sleeves, and the suit will fit

while the poisoned dogs, reel off defeated dreams
to the cold hard road, under their feet.
a seer in a cheap shirt, swigging oil to stay alert
shines the shit real good, but hey it still stays dirt
nothin’s ever what it seems
