Like a foggy mirror
Where receptions blurred
And things could stand to be clearer
Sometimes it's hard to look you in the eye

If I could be the man on your shoulder
A god as you grow older
I'd sleep so much easier tonight
Close your eyes, they'll tell a story of happy endings

Close your eyes, re-write the story, a new beginning
And it's not what they said and it's not what we read
And all the promises they made us
Are left shattered on the ground

And your defense
You've done no wrong
And live life in innocence
So, how could they have looked you in the eye?

If I could be the man on your shoulder
To watch you as you grow older
I'd sleep so much easier tonight
Close your eyes, they'll tell a story of happy endings

Close your eyes, re-write the story, a new beginning
And it's not what they said and it's not what we read
And all the promises they made us
Are left shattered on the ground

And it's not what they said, it's not what we read
And all the promises they made us
Are left shattered on the ground

It's on the ground
And when the cards are down
It's safe to say that all bets are off

It's on the ground
And when the cards are down
Well, it's time to play, it's hard to say
So, bet all call

It's not what they said, and it's not what we read
And all the promises they made us
Are left shattered on the ground

It's not what they said, and it's not what we read
And all the promises they made us
Are left shattered on the ground

Shattered on the ground
And all the cards are down
Everything they told us
Has always been so wrong

So wrong, so wrong
So wrong
