​Insidious Lie

This song is by Craig's Brother and appears on the album The Insidious Lie (2011).

If only I could break the spell
That binds your heart
I wish that I could abrogate
Whatever trance keeps you believing

That hideous deception
That this is what your heart is yearning for
The power of suggestion and the mind
Bereft of the discretion to deny
The insidious lie

Caught in the clutches
Of those who would usurp your motivation
Held in the grasp
Of those who would collateralize your life

I hoped you wouldn't patronize
Those who would appropriate your mind
But you've been prone to swallow lies
Ignorantly still believing

That somebody out there
Holds that missing part of you
Knows what in your heart
You've always truly thirsted for
It's packaged at a price you can afford
And ready to deliver to your door

Oh but I know it's a lie
Must we persist in believing
That we can buy joy
Or are we all swine
Are we defined by our girth and our appetites
Can we be anything more than consumers

If only I could break the spell
That binds your heart
I wish that I could abrogate
Whatever trance keeps you believing

That hideous deception
That this is what your heart is yearning for
The power of suggestion and the mind
Bereft of the discretion to deny
The insidious lie

Caught in the clutches
Of those who would collateralize your mind
Held in the grasp
Of those who would usurp your free will

Caught in the clutches (The insidious lie)
Of those who would expropriate you
Those who would collateralize you
Those who would commodify your mind
