Trickster In Exile

lyrics

I feel you slipping
But I'm still holding on
My hands are trembling
Reaching for the dawn
Under the moonlight
Under the moonlight

I look into the mirror
Who am I fooling?
I feel just like a stranger
Lost among the ruins
A trickster in exile
A trickster in exile

It's more than just a roll of the dice
You've got to look the King of Hearts in the eyes
Even if you're not able
Even if you're not able to shake off the doubt
You lay your cards on the table
I'm not betting on my luck running out

Your never ending
Constant trail of tears
Have left their mark pretending
The illusion was real
And when I pulled back the curtain
Your red eyes were uncertain
If the act was still working
If the act was still working

I can see you through your disguise
Behind your mask, you tremble like a child
But you got that look in your eye
Give it to me one wink at a time
I know you're trying to tell me something
I hope it's a lie

Like when you caught
A bullet in your teeth
That never left the gun
The end before the start
Of what never begun
Done is done

Beyond any reason
Beyond any doubt
Beyond any reason
Beyond any doubt
Beyond any reason
I wait for you day in
Day out
