SMOKE AND MIRRORS

i ain't saying you're a liar
but you ain't on the up and up
always preaching to your choir
only fillin' your own cup
seems there's nothing you can't taint
a fact is a fact until it ain't

   twisted logic
   twisted reason
   twisted words
   twisted lies
   fairy tales and fables
   your favorite alibis
   hiding you intentions
   only makes 'em clearer
   it's what you're made of
   smoke and mirrors

so you tell us one more time
how truly great you are
the perfect picture of sublime
hero, god, superstar
you've done it all, you've told us so
over and over making certain that we know

   twisted logic
   twisted reason
   twisted words
   twisted lies
   fairy tales and fables
   your favorite alibis
   hiding your intentions
   only makes 'em clearer
   it's what you're made of
   smoke and mirrors



Harmonies: Janice Merritt (Thanks to you both!!)


Comments welcomed and encouraged.
Have at it.

Wow! What a great sound! Total quality. Soon as it started I thought it was as good as anything I've heard commercially. Love the lyric too, though that may be more divisive! Great harmonies, I like that you used them sparingly in the verse, then heavily in the chorus. The length of the notes is really well judged too, that's something I can take away for myself. Brilliant song!

Hi Floyd
I wrote one called "It's all smoke and mirrors", myself a few years ago.
Totally different though.

I like that it's stripped down and especially like your phrasing in the line "smoke and mirrors".

Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Smoke and Mirrors is such a good phrase... I guess it's been used for titles by so many, including me... but I don't think I've heard one that comes close to "topping this one", Floyd:

Your phrasing is so darn good, the write is nearly perfect (there are no "perfect songs") and I really enjoyed my listen. ----Dave

Awesome lyric. Covers so many circumstances in so few words using everyday language....and it rhymes.
Enjoyed the tune, delivery, subject matter and everything else.

I can only echo previous comments. A really good song - catchy on first listen, The lyrics stand out for sure. And the arrangement, instrumental sound and singing are all top notch - great lead vocal. Definitely radio ready.

This is good. Floyd to me your forte is your ability to write for yourself, alot of people can't, you have a style. Your vocal always sounds like you're there.

I'm not a big country fan, but it has a 90's quality to it where I believe pop and country started colliding, may have happened earlier than that but....

It's hard to write a convincing song and perform it to boot.

You seem to be able. Enjoyed my listen.

It's hard to write a convincing song and perform it to boot.

You seem to be able. Enjoyed my listen.


Fd - I certainly appreciate your comments here. I know you "call it as you see it".... Thanks.

I love that this song works so well on two levels. Not everyone will get the political reference (especially those who perhaps need to hear it more than anyone), but they will still be able to enjoy it because it's just a darned good song. Kudos.

Thanks, Gavin. IT seems to get more relevant with each passing day (or hour!)... smile

Just Plain Quotes
"A lot of people will tell you that preparation is what will make you successful. But I think that people misunderstand exactly what that means sometimes. The type of preparation you need most is the kind that allows you to instantly seize an opportunity, change your course based on a momentary circumstance, and grab hold of the totally unexpected when it happens, and allow it to take you for the ride of your life! That is the kind of preparation that can lead to the most enjoyable type of success." -Brian Austin Whitney
