deceptive light lyrics – hourglass

“somebody always pays”

look at me in the eye my fellow
i can make your dreams come true
i’ll make you catch the rainbow
and touch and bring the moon

you walked on water, you cut off the bread
you brought life for those who are dead
you lived in vanity, you believed in yourself
your power and strength without me are fake

till the end i’m your friend
trust what i preach you won’t regret
see how the pain fades away
just by the words that i say

now you have crossed my night
blindly followed my false light
your life in ruin your dreams are sand
and your time is nearly close at hand

i know that you never deserve it. no!
but somebody must pay for it all
in your case i’ll believe it is you
who should die for what i do

now the end’s clear as gl*ss
death and the pain – forever last
left all alone – a flood of tears
no time is left – wasted years

one day you will pay for what you have done to me,
in the same deceptive light you will sink
