Ruse

From"Tender is the Heart"


This sermon won't elevate the masses
Not all myopic eyes want glasses
You can vilify my apathy
But we all stand down at times
Pick your enemies wisely
Someday they'll trade me for another
A better son, a better brother
My replacement won't put down the phone
Drives in weekends, holidays too
So no one eats alone
Who's behind this ruse
Why don't we split up
And search for clues
Who's behind this ruse
Look at these footprints
It's someone with shoes
We've drowned ourselves in quixotic babble
A worthless word except in Scrabble
Time to clean out the mansion in my head
Rooms I haven't been in for years
Time to paint the walls red
Who's behind this ruse
Why don't we split up
And search for clues
Who's behind this ruse
Look at these footprints
It's someone with shoes
They squint like a mole
Strange how blind men can be racist sometimes
But there's room in this hole
Crawl in, dry off, you are at home now!
Who's behind this ruse
Who's behind this ruse
Why don't we split up
And search for clues
Who's behind this ruse
Why don't we split up
And search for clues
Who's behind this ruse
Look at these footprints
It's someone with shoes
