Lie of Your Life

Capo 5

C
It’s so easy
Am
To get lost in this world
C
One day you wake up
Am
And your mortal coil is curled
F
Around a quiet life of desperation
Am
Click your mouse on a post
F
It’s a bad bad situation
G
Because that’s what you love the most

It’s an endless game
With too many squares
Waiting on a train
Under baleful stares
Of the black birds of appetite
Chattering up in a tree
You keep wondering who they’re waiting for
But you’re all they see

It’s a logical proposition
But your conclusions wrong
You took for granted the premise
That you mean anything at all
That hole you’re digging is getting deeper
With every dream your forget
Your life flashes before your eyes
Like the stoplight of regret

F                                         C
And it’s the sweet song of illusion
F                                     C
The convicted voice of confusion
F                                                         C
The utter certainty you have in your delusion
                          G
I see it in your eyes

F                          G               Am
You’re loving the lie of your life
You’re living the life of your life
