lyrics

The air was saturated
At the peak of Mount Hope
Snow encapsulated
The fire foretold
Senses stimulated
As the lies took hold
You must have incubated
A plan so cold
Must have calculated
The last known cent
Before you detonated
A life unspent

As you played a silent game
Watched the dream just fall away
Nobody saw it coming, you took us all
And the ones with the least
Had the furthest to fall

Underhand and understated
The nine yards got sold
Eyes were dilated
At the pot of fool’s gold
Should have interrogated
Instead of counting on
Maybe you can’t detect it
When conscience is gone

As you slowly snuffed the flame
Sent the dream along it’s way
Nobody saw it coming, you took us all
And the ones with the least
Had the furthest to fall

Each promise you break
Was never more than a paper plate
Something in our eyes
Blinked away the lies
We must have been snowblind

As the sun danced on in vain
You made a mountain turn to clay
Nobody saw it coming, you took us all
But the ones with the least
Had the furthest to fall

With the sun glinting over
The mountain peak
A flaming white cloud
With every word you speak
Stamp your feet warm
Now the path is clear
Launie and Steve
Meet Mark - the mutineer
