Hello, oh dark one, my old friend,
You just came back to play pretend.
You're just a memory by now,
Don't even know each other's names or how to not be proud.
Why must you keep up the charade?
You'll only piss on my parade.
Who are you trying to impress?
Both know you've come back just to point out all my mess.

Why won't you leave me alone,
I smell your dogma's breath on me,
Why must you knock at my door, there is no room at the inn,
Your mouth is full but your words are empty.

I've stopped pretending to pretend,
Your self righteousness has its end.
Even the smiles you wear are fake,
It sits cold on your face, you burn your witches at the stake.
Manipulation's all you know,
Teamed with hysterics for the show.
The ignorance spits out like bile,
You have no one cos you put every poor bastard on trial.

You wanna tell me I'm wrong, you're strong, go on say it.
It's not enough to believe your own lies,
You have to sell them to the masses, can you do it?
It's not enough to convince yourself,
You can't drink the Koolaid without the practice.


from Holding Hands With The Shadow Man, released August 23, 2016
