Comin' soon....

Hard to tell the difference,
Between the truth and the lies these days.
The lines are all gone between the right and the wrong,
But I'm tellin' you, somebody got to pay!
Did you ever get the feelin',
Like they're cookin' up some kind of master plan?
The devil's in the details, in their tone of voice,
And I'm tellin' you, in their sleight of hand!

  Can't believe those nice guys been tellin' us lies,
  And callin' it the truth!
  We've gone too far to get back, to where we got off the track
  And we got lost in their view.
  But it won't be too long 'til the end of the song,,
  But will we ever change our tune?
  'Cause it's played and it's played, 
  Now it's startin' to fade all the colors in the room.
     And I say "Woah, Lord, I feel it comin' soon"
     And I say "Woah, yeah, I hope you're makin' me some room!"

Now they say we're fighting terror, 
Hell, that's a fight I'd like to see!
We'll stumble and fall, reduced to a crawl,
We'll be unable to proceed!
Sift through the pieces, for rhyme or for reason,
For some sense of it all.
It's there, I swear, in the madness we share,
But, you know, I never heard it fall.

  Can't believe those nice guys been spoon-feedin' us lies, 
  Coated in the truth!
  We've gone too far to get back, to where we got off the track,
  And we got lost in their view.
  But it won't be too long 'til the end of the song,
  But will we ever change our tune?
  'Cause it's played and it's played, 
  Now it's startin' to fade all the colors in the room.
     And I say "Woah, Lord, I feel it comin' soon"
     And I say "Woah, yeah, I hope you're makin' me some room!"
