Powder & Lies – Lyrics:

Dark clouds in the crazy world of your schemes
The order you make never is what it seems
You think you can hide behind alibis
All that I can see is powder and lies

Blood red is the colour shed by your sun
You only feel safe at the back of a gun
Come down off your cloud — face up to the facts
You have to play ball or a knife’s in your back

[Refrain]
I tread soft in the rain
Cos it’s all just a game
Whole world’s gone insane
Please tell me it’s all just a nightmare and soon I’ll awake

You speak and a plane goes down in the sky
Atrocities spread while the bombs multiply
Dig deep and the reason soon becomes clear
You need to fake power and to generate fear

[Vocal bridge]
Always wondered how you see you
in the temple of your “soul”
I live in hope that you will see through
what fills up your aching hole

[Refrain]
I tread soft in the rain
Cos it’s all just a game
Whole world’s gone insane
Please tell me it’s all just a nightmare and soon I’ll awake

Loose change in the counting house of your heart
You’re not satisfied till you blow things apart
I’ve seen all the pain you disguise with your smile
One day, planet Earth will be free from your guile

Paint dries on the pentagram out in space —
your hologram home where you’re strangers to grace.
Dressed up in your suits and shirts and your ties
All that I can see is powder and lies

[Refrain]
I tread soft in the rain
Cos it’s all just a game
Whole world’s gone insane
Please tell me it’s all just a nightmare and soon I’ll awake

About the Author: Alan Morrisonis a Contributing Author for The Liberty Beacon Project (TLB). Originally from the UK, Alan is a writer, poet, songwriter, performer and occasional actor — a troubadour who could be found in any one of a number of European locations, having lived and worked in France, Sweden, Germany and Spain. There came a point in his life, shortly before the turn of the century, when he determined to live entirely from his art or starve (inspired by the central character in Knut Hamsun’s groundbreaking 1890 novel, “Hunger”). Since then, thanks to the encouraging generosity of others, he has survived and created much, having written numerous articles, published a 200-poem book, performed many concerts, worked with many musicians and created three CD albums. Now another album has been released in October 2016 … Continue reading here: alan-morrison.com, contact Alan at nostoneunturnedwordshop@outlook.com

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
