Impressions

And you say it's all pretending

Just an image on the screen

A vision of what cannot be

Something never really seen

-The great depression, impression

-An impact of questions and pain

-The pit is deep, the walls so high

-In the darkness - insane

-Spiral down

-Falling - falling

-Hold on - no - nothing there

And you say it's all pretending

Just an image on the screen

A movie played out for no one

Something never really seen

-And you say there is no understanding

-No way to really know

-It's a prison that confines us

-Of words - from not so long ago

-Spiral down

-Falling - falling

-Hold on - no - nothing there

And you say it's all pretending

Just an image on the wall

An exercise in illusion

Really nothing there at all

-The castle crumbles at our feet

-The world collapses all around

-The flowers wither away and die

-Loving hold - no, tightly bound

-Spiral down

-Falling - falling

-Hold on - no - nothing there

And you say it's all pretending

Just a reflection in a pool

And now there's no pretending

Who is the standing fool?

Who is the standing fool - crying fool?

-Spiral down

-Falling - falling

-Hold on - no - nothing there

-Spiral down

-Falling - falling

-Hold on - no - nothing there

Spiral down

Falling - falling

Hold on - no - nothing there

- nothing there

- nothing there

- nothing there

- nothing there
