​Innocent Party

This song is by Fish and appears on the album Field Of Crows (2003).

Don't talk to me about justice, freedom, truth and
Democracy,
When all you left me were false hopes, lies, empty
Promises,
Now you're crying betrayal, demanding attention and
Sympathy,
You forget your own treason, your actions and the
Consequences
Of your selfish behaviour, don't make out that you're the
Innocent party!
You played the cards you were dealt with unwisely; you
Didn't listen to me,
You tried to bluff once too often, you were called out,
Cheating in the first degree
Just a sheep in wolf's clothing, a cowboy, a charlatan a
Chevalier,
A naive knave among princes you weren't quite what you
Appeared to be!
Now all you see is all you get; it's in your face, nowhere else left to hide,
Just face the truth and face the facts you're on your own, no one left on your side
You blame it all on the system you worked in you helped to
Perpetuate
You sold out all of your secrets; you sold short all your big
Ideas
You were flying too high not a care in the world you thought that you'd never come down; You forgot all the rules, lost sight of the ground Didn't think that you ever could fall, A fool on the wing flew too close to the sun; you burned out and dropped out the sky, And everyone stared but did anyone care no one remembers your name,
Now you can't trust your own instincts, you don't know
Who or what to believe,
You were blind in the spotlight you reached out for
Conspiracies.
There's times you feel you lost your mind, you've lost control the very will to survive,
Just pick yourself up of the ground, get dusted down, and get back in the fight
You were flying too high not a care in the world you
Thought that you'd never come down;
You forgot all the rules, lost sight of the ground
Didn't think that you ever could fall,
A fool on the wing flew too close to the sun; you burned
Out and dropped out the sky,
And everyone stared but did anyone care
No one remembers your name,
Now that you're down to your last hope, the long shot, now
You're down on your knees,
Begging me for one last chance, one more golden
Opportunity
And all you see is all you get; it's in your face, nowhere else left to hide,
Just face the truth and face the facts you're on your own, no one left on your side
You once had the World at your feet but your conscience
Wandered in clouds,
You lost sight of your goals; your vision was blurred when
The towers one day disappeared.
Everyone stared, no one believed as the images burned on
Our screens,
That a world had just changed, the dream evaporates, no
More innocent parties!
