The Jokes on You

The jokes on you 
Flit

As we walk home from the party 
The atmosphere declines
Just you and i alone again 
There’s nowhere left to hide
In and out of consciousness 
We always wear a different face
Whatever we decide to show it’s never out of place

A game for two that one can play
I know you’ll never stay away
A never ending episode 
Of day and night –night and day
Of day and night –night and day

Hello Jekyll goodbye Mr. Hyde
To me you are the joker
 The jester deep inside
You are the joker- ---
But the jokes on you

A switchback roller coaster 
Always coming of the tracks
Its double vision eye to eye, 
It’s time we faced the fact
I know you’ll never catch me, 
I’m gonna slip right through
Your altered twisted attitude will be the end of you

I see you in the mirror 
There’s no freedom there for me
Cause this schizophrenic multitude 
Is deep inside of me?
Is hiding deep inside of me?

Hello Mr. Jekyll 
Goodbye Mr. Hyde
To me you are the joker 
The jester deep inside
You are the joker---- 
But the jokes on you
The jesters deep inside
