Confession:Reflection

lyrics & music: Stan Stewart

In spite of my thoughts of independence
I built my world around you.
I closed my heart to fears my mind would raise.
In spite of my fear of true repentance
I’m here to say my failure
Was only that I failed to fail myself.

Look at me
Play the fool,
set the stage and state the rule.
Look at me when the fire’s burning low.

Excuses we made were unforgiving.
Amazing that we’re living;
Amazing there’s a spark this left at all.
Refusing to budge won’t get us nowhere:
We’ve seen the traffic slow where
The human side can’t see the side it’s cold.

Confession:ReflectionLook at me
Play the fool,
set the stage and state the rule.
Look at me when the fire’s burning low.

Don’t think the payment will be given:
I know the life I’m living
May not be much. I’m treated, oh, so cool.
Yes, I’ll place the spark in places fitting.
The fire will be emitting
A flame that burns the foolishness I feel.

Look at me
Play the fool,
set the stage and state the rule.
Look at me when the fire’s burning low.
