Shiny Things Is Good

This song is by Dillinger Four and appears on the album Versus God (2000).

Sometimes you can feel the rug get pulled from below your feet
It's like one minute you're like a rock standing strong, and the next you're beat
It's not up to you, something's always there working behind the scenes
Invisible hands handcuffing and last chance bluffing, feeding their greed

Pacified reason, it's adding up to treason
We are your slap in the face now, the sons who've been cast out
Slip under the wire, our spark ignites the fire

It's all smoke and mirrors and a transparent truth
Hold it up but don't trust it
It's all a hoodwink, disappearing ink on the page
Built you up and then crushed it

It's a bait and a switch, a blindfold that we must wear
A promise of a life so real, so close you can grab it but it's thin as air
Each and every one gets a day in the sun and you just might get one too
If you just believe what they're telling and buy what they're selling, it could happen to you

Pacified reason, it's adding up to treason
We are your slap in the face now, the sons who've been cast out
Slip under the wire, our spark ignites the fire

It's all smoke and mirrors and a transparent truth
Hold it up but don't trust it
It's all a hoodwink, disappearing ink on the page
Built you up and then crushed it

You give it all, get nothing back, just trying to keep your head intact
You're just a shape without a soul
You grind along until you die, your meaning's found in what you buy
Spend your life in the dark, end it with a question mark

We are your slap in the face now, the sons who've been cast out
Slip under the wire, our spark ignites the fire

It's all smoke and mirrors and a transparent truth
Hold it up but don't trust it
It's all a hoodwink, disappearing ink on the page
Built you up and then crushed it
