Smoke and Fire

Smoke and mirrors
But smoke means fire
Now we see clearly
But oh God there’s a fire
And the heat is the flame
That’s charring the cores
It’s melting the resistance
But fueling the wars
The battles and riots
Smoke and mirrors
Divert the game
See them where they go
Seen them when they came
Smoked up your view
When they detained your neighbor
Smoked up your view
Said they did you a favor
Smoke and mirrors
But now it’s just fire
And nothing in the mirror
Except me and you
And the fire
Smokes distraction
Blinding the picture
Spurns the action
And blinds the protectors
Distracts the dissent
While we hope and pretend
Oh ignorance is bliss
But we aren’t ignorant
When the fire is at our door
It’s not smoke and mirrors anymore
No it’s not bliss anymore
Where there is smoke there’s fire
See them when they came
See them where they go
And now we can’t say
That we don’t know
We don’t know
Smoke and mirrors
But now it’s just fire
And nothing in the mirror
But you
