Kidding Ourselves

We're all looking for something that may not be real
Truth is the fear we keep concealed
We forget to predict with our map of the past
Lie to ourselves with abandon this time will last.

(Chorus) We've all been fools
We've all felt used
We can't deny
We're just kidding ourselves

Did anyone tell us this life was fair
We'll gladly accept a lot more than our share
Ignore all our flaws - find someone to blame
Point at a mirror the image is always the same


We kid ourselves
We know we lie
We hurt each other
We know we'll get by
We see ourselves
with our own eyes
We can't see through
Our own disguise

We can work on our souls be better by far
We choose to mark time - be less than we are
End of the day we're surprised it goes by so fast
Look at the sky and marvel at something so vast
