House of Smoke & Mirrors - Matthew Good

There's the house
There's the doorway
Been locked out
The lights are out anyway
And loosely reconditioned
To be just so refined
A last grasp at the life worth living
In these standard shoes and what's left of my lines
You can see right through me

I've been thinking
Why don't we get out of here tonight?
Get in the car and just start driving
F_ck them if they can't take a joke

I've fallen asleep again
And when I wake up you won't be here
Don't you think I don't know why?
I've been asleep for years

You can see right through me
