This feeling is not of our own mind
Invented, implanted
Half-truths and only one right side
Helpless and stranded
It weaves like smoke trails throughout the air
Apart from, among
With sharp intentions, fights unfair
The breath stole from your lungs

Next choice the one that matters most
Choose now – the phantom or the ghost

The lines have blurred, the rules have changed
They’re undeterred now
Our conscience and our reason tamed
Honor disavowed
They bet both sides to rig the game
A subtle sleight of hand
A burst of air into our veins
Control and command

If we are to believe everything we see
Then the truth is fleeting and changes with the breeze
We mustn’t let our minds be shaped by their designs
It’s for us to decide what is real in our eyes
