the mirrors tell you lies

Welcome to the Fun-house where all the mirrors tell you lies.

They see what they’re told to see, nothing to do with what’s inside.

Even the woman with the beard think’s I’m weird…

“Hey buddy want to ride?”

An old man stands next to a merry go round telling me its the way to go…

“It’s safe and sure says everyone before come on and give it a try”…

I catch a little something more in his eye, is it sorrow or is it pride? I don’t know…

A genie in blue with a handful of cards gives promise of knowing what is true…

My money in his pocket he turns to face the the… “Mirror Mirror on the wall”…
