ABSTRAKT ALGEBRA lyrics - Shadowplay

ABSTRAKT ALGEBRA
"Shadowplay"

Dancing figures of smoke and light
The jester's sardonic parade
Mannequin puppet your limping waltz
On my bedroom wall
Keep pretending, keep performing
The dreamer must stay awake
Shapeless riddles told by pompous rogues
Pantomime preachers present

Empty eyes staring, sunken eyes glaring
Drowned in a moment of truth
Hourglass ticking, a childs fingerlicking
Jigsaw puzzles and clay
Silhouettoes and gepettoes circling the face of my world
You point your finger, I break each and one
A handfull of reasons are gone

'Cause you're nothing
But a shadowplay
I am all
No longer astray
And I'm sick n' tired of you

So get out my house
So get out my life
So get out of my head
So get out of the way

Taciturned teasers with tattooed tears
A play of shadows they give
A blindfolded sejour from Shakespeare to Marx
Directions vague and obscene
Comedies and tragedies
Spastic laughter I sense
A room, a scene, a private playground
The front-row ticket I've got

'Cause you're nothing
But a shadowplay
I am all
No longer astray
And I'm sick n' tired of you
'Cause you're nothing, nothing
But a shadowplay
I am all
No longer astray
