Cloud of Clues

The soul behind the cloud of clues
Are you watching closely? 

(SFX - Wind/Thunder)
(Guitar INTRO)
(All instruments BEGIN)

When I ask you to disappear
You shall disappear
When I ask you to appear
You shall appear
You are mine

Pride turns an angel to a devil

(Keyboard SOLO)

I take less than what I need
I snatch more than I need

My secret dies with me
My secret amazes the world 
And its fools

(Instrumental Break)


(All Instruments BEGIN)
(Instrumental Section - 8 minutes)

Nothing is impossible
Impossible is expensive
But not impossible

The polite mask of pride on my face
I walk around to amuse and amaze

You are amazed because you are a fool

The wait has come to end
The curtain has fallen
Still you can see nothing, can you?

I will now allow you to meet yourself
Are you ready?


I love the man in the mirror
I disguise the lies in truth 
And, you are mine

The person you are trying to reach is right here
In front of you
He is you

You are not the master
You are the fool here
Your reach exceeds your grip
Don't fool yourself anymore
Stop living your act 
You are the fool here

Secrets are your life
Burn the venom of deceit and
For a change
Try being yourself 

(Drums BREAK)
(Bass SOLO)
(Guitar SOLO)

One man, two roles
One man, two roles
One man, two roles
One man, two roles 
Two men, one role
Two men, one role
Two men, one role
Two men, one role

(Guitar EXTRO)

the duplicity we choose to believe... but who do we fool but ourselves?

Strawberry Girl said...

The veil of lies has hidden who he truly is, his real self lies just beyond his reach and he dies not knowing the true man... at least that is what I take is the jist of this it is so well written that although it seems clear it also seems a mystery! Fantastic job sweetheart!!

awesome image!
I like your use if different angles of the alliterated words in this- Also the duality theme.

Putting on a show is never as important as knowing yourself- so true!

well done; the self is always there...we are sometimes afraid to see it

TechnoBabe said...

People are able to fool others and even themselves when they choose, right? Facing oneself takes courage and strength. You are doing that though.

I enjoyed your latest work AJ. The mask of vanity and the dual between the real self and the imitation is quite palpable. Nicely done here!

Interesting lines .. Love the line "Pride turns an angel to a devil"

Thought provoking ...

Scribbling Girl said...

Two persona of a single person...indeed they exist...what important is who he lets to be more dominant....the angel or the devil...its the hardest he has to make.

Written perfectly.

Opaque said...

@Snaggle Tooth - Had to rephrase them to convey the duality theme. Glad it came out well.

Opaque said...

@...Paige - True. We are sometimes afraid of the known too.

Opaque said...
