Smoke and Mirrors
Smoke and Mirrors
Gary Pedroni (music) and Yoli Rose (lyrics)

Smoke and mirrors
House of cards
Broken glass
in splintered shards
Storm the fences
Tear down the walls
Piece by peace
we¹ll watch them fall. Watch them fall
Parlor games
at the costume ball
Remove the masks
till there¹s none at all.
Written words
upon the sand
Tide comes in,
and out again
All these things
come crumbling down
Wind and waves
and sand remain.
Try to wake up
from this dream.
Make some sense
of what it means.
Smoke and mirrors
clear the air.
What it seems
might not be there.
Storm the fences
Tear down the walls.
Piece by piece by peace
we¹re gonna make them fall. Let¹s make them fall.
Watch them fall.

Elaborate Lies
Gary Pedroni (music) and Yoli Rose (lyrics)


I read the books, I know the things to say
I heard the experts, just the other day
I know, I know, but I don¹t want to know
The truths behind why things are so

Elaborate lies, Veils of illusion
Rationalize the fear and confusion

I know the way it should be,
I saw it last night on TV,
Y¹gotta do it this way if y¹want to be free
Everybody¹s got to be like me

Elaborate lies, Veils of illusion
Rationalize the fear and confusion

I know the right words, forget about action
I can¹t tell the act from the reaction.
It¹s all about style, status and stuff
So let¹s go shopping Œcause there¹s never enough

Elaborate lies, Veils of illusion
Rationalize the f-f-f-fear and confusion

I¹ll impress you at parties with my knowledge and charm
And if it¹s phony don¹t be alarmed
Œcause there are games to play with unspoken rules
Building walls and cities of fools

(aihh)

Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie
Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie
Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie
Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie

Elaborate lies, Veils of illusion
Rationalize the fear and confusion

Walk Away
Gary Pedroni (music) and Yoli Rose (lyrics)

You say that you love me, You say that you care
But when I really need you, you just aren¹t there.
You tell me sweet stories, but I can see in your eyes,
You go through the motions, but the words are just lies.

Walk away, walk away, walk away, don¹t cry
Walk away, don¹t look back, walk away, say goodbye

You want me, you need me - that¹s what you say
You pull me real close, then you push me away.
One day it¹s hot, and the next you¹re real cold.
I call you up and you put me on hold

Walk away, walk away, walk away, don¹t cry
Walk away, don¹t look back, walk away, say goodbye

I wonder what happened, and just what is real,
I¹m not even sure Œbout way that I feel.
I could never hate you - I¹m not placing blame,
but I¹m getting tired of playing your game.

Walk away, walk away, walk away, don¹t cry
Walk away, don¹t look back, walk away, say goodbye

We had some good times, and now they are gone
I know that now I must keep moving on.
I gave you my heart. You took up my time.
One of these days now I know I¹ll be fine

Walk away, walk away, walk away, don¹t cry
Walk away, don¹t look back, walk away, say goodbye

You said that you love me, you said that you care
But now I don¹t need you - I¹t¹s going nowhere.
Now it is over, now it is through
Now I am saying goodbye to you.

Walk away, walk away, walk away, don¹t cry
Walk away, don¹t look back, walk away, say goodbye
Walk away, walk away, walk away, don¹t cry
Walk away, don¹t look back, walk away, say goodbye
