lyrics

Purposefully distracted from the moment
Perfect portents and overblown omens
Chasing the dancing light on the wall like the grail
Getting so engrossed in the detail, chase your tail

Fish and chips, computer quips
Quills and ink, cheap thrills and tricks
A stick attached to perfect hips
Impending doom, apocalypse
We could buy the perfect kind of weather
To curse and then complain about together
Will our worries wash away
With the perfect kind of rain?
Stop, take a deep breath
And listen here...

There’s a wizard in disguise hiding inside
He will take you by surprise and he’ll blow your mind
In the falling leaves he is leaving us signs
Invisible to most, most of the time
I’ll get on my way, he will be by my side
With spells upon my tongue, screaming “I’m alive!”
Wizard in disguise, hiding inside
The magic he will teach you will blow your mind

Building a range of mountains from a million molehills
Can’t see the forest or the leaves for the chlorophyll
Manufacturing mirages to quench thirst
Filling up on satisfying metaphors, fit to burst

Train your brain for segregation
Thick as thieves that plague the nation
Slackers, schemers, politicians, dreamers
Point the finger at the unbelievers
They’re the reason we’re in neck deep
Scapegoats in a flock of black sheep
I have heard the grass is green
Underneath the guillotine
Stop all that nonsense
And listen here...

There’s a wizard in disguise hiding inside
He will take you by surprise and he’ll blow your mind
In the falling leaves he is leaving us signs
Invisible to most, most of the time
I’ll get on my way, he will be by my side
With spells upon my tongue, screaming “I’m alive!”
The magic he will teach you will blow your mind
