Joker's Lie

Credits Lyrics: 
Pete Sears. B.M.I.

JOKER’S LIE Words and Music Pete Sears B.M.I.

For one week and a day you lay as your life hung by a thread
Unconscious to this earthly plane as she waited by your bed
You later said you found this place that shook you to the core
And you never want to go back to that dark and distant shore

(Where) and the reaper waited patiently as you knocked at deaths old door
While you felt the grip of fear inside as you never have before

But your souls at peace of that I'm sure and there will be no pain
And you'll never go back to that dark shore to that terrible place again

Perhaps it was the Morphine's grip that crawled inside your brain
As the joker sneered and lied to you said you'll never laugh again
Metallic shades of cobalt blue dark angels cold as rain
Trapped inside the devils lie and you tried to flee in vain

But your souls at peace of that I'm sure and there will be no pain
And you'll never go back to that dark shore to that terrible place again

Solo: Verse: Chorus:

But it was a lie I know you to be a man who’s lived life well
You've done more good than harm for all and for you there’ll be no hell
And you've lent a helping hand to those who for no fault of their own
Have felt the fickle hand of fate flay them open to the bone

But your souls at peace of that I'm sure and there will be no pain
And you'll never go back to that dark shore to that terrible place again
