Lyrics

THE GREAT DECEIVER


One time Babe you held the magic lantern,
That filled the night with its electric glow,
The smiles and kisses that you gave me,
Seemed so special then until I came to know
That your whole life is just our deception,
And it?s sad but it?s oh so true,
That the only one you end up deceiving
Combs her hair in the mirror
And beams smiles back at you
.

Your trade torn tricks are worn and their withered
Your lids to life less to believe,
You?re a beauty it?s my duty to adore you,
But no one can implore you
All is lost when you deceive.
Some fat assed plumber is your conquest
Or a faceless man who?ll never understand,
Why a girl like you, a living Goddess,
Needs to feel the comfort of his hands.

Chorus
Your whole life is just one deception,
And it?s sad but it?s oh so true,
That the only one you end up deceiving,
Combs her raven hair in the mirror
And beams smiles back at you back at you

Weird Alice says I no longer lust for you,
But she can?t see the pleasure in my pain.
I?m a taker and I?m taking all I can from you.
And deceiving a deceiver once again.

Chorus
Your whole life is just one deception,
And it?s sad but it?s oh so true,
That the only one you end up deceiving,
Combs her raven hair in the mirror
And beams smiles back at you back at you
