08. In Layers

Goliath
by Steve Taylor & The Perfect Foil



 

You were the first in line
The first to volunteer
Now youíre the last to learn
they arenít what they appear


If itís naivety
it looks best on the young
Give it time, and youíll be
comfortably dumb



You fall in
You grin
You fake it
Something stirs
and the perks canít shake it
Ask around
Get shrugs from players
Leads and lies
come wrapped in layers


LIES
WEíVE ALL BEEN COMPROMISED
LIES
NOW ARE YOU SO SURPRISED?

Itís in the air, she said
as she took a shallow breath
Itís in the walls and floors
leaching a slow death

They call you paranoid
Itís how they seize control
And once youíre pacified
theyíre gonna steal your soul

You say enough
They call the big boys
You blow the whistle
They crank the white noise
You fight back
They send more players
Kick all you want
Youíre lost in layers

LIES
WEíVE ALL BEEN COMPROMISED
LIES
NOW ARE YOU SO SURPRISED?
LIBERTY STARES YOU DOWN
BEFORE IT DIES
LIES
NOW ARE YOU SO SURPRISED?

GOOD OLí BOYS
CRANK UP THE WHITE NOISE

You hit the first clue
if you drill down far enough
Itís gonna stare you down
until it calls your bluff

Weíre all hoarders here
caught in layers of sin
Itís been stratified
beneath our onion skin

Throw up your hands
and hell keeps yawning
Open your eyes
Thereís a new world dawning
Sun burns fog
burns all naysayers
Love, like a child
comes wrapped in layers

RISE
WEíVE ALL BEEN COMPROMISED
RISE
NOW ARE YOU SO SURPRISED?
LIBERTY STARED YOU DOWN
BEFORE HE DIED
RISE
NOW ARE YOU SO SURPRISED?
