Great Disguise

(Sullivan/M Dean) 2019

Last man standing is the game I play the best
When everyone’s so sensitive it’s easy to be tougher than the rest
But there are secrets and ghosts in everything
And long silences between the words
The wall-clock in your kitchen is the loudest that I’ve heard

I need to find someone who tries to see behind the great disguise
And all the sins and all the lies that hide behind my great disguise

Last night I heard an animal cry when I was lying in my bed
I listened at the window but it was deep inside my head
If you take my madness then I take your control
There are clues to be found and a smoking gun there on every table
And in everything we said

I need to find someone who tries to see behind the great disguise
And all the sins and all the lies that hide behind my great disguise

Disappointment kills us every time
Disappointment kills us every time…

That cold November evening I drove across the hills
To witness your confession – I guess there was no one else
You gave me a box to bury deep in the ground
So you could forget what you put inside
And reinvent the stories to what it suited you to tell

We need to find someone who tries to see behind our great disguise
And all the love and all the lies that hide behind our great disguise
