Shattered Glass

Illusionary Man

Mother Fortune, your servant I am,
but for how long will I remain?
With a curse laid on a clown I am,
with a heavy heart have empty eyes.

Eyes that see what others don’t,
that read between the lines.
That see an art outside the sketch,
a tune below the song.

I hear a horn blow in silence,
its gleam in darkness see.
I know a key to the sealed gate,
a riddle beyond knowing.

    A master of tricks,
    illusionary man.
    A fool by the throne,
    illusionary smile.
    A vision at night,
    illusionary dream.
    A step to nowhere,
    illusionary path.
    An empty mirror,
    illusionary man…

One night I saw shining on the grass
an angel that has touched the ground.
With chaines enslaved, in a cage locked,
charmed with a spell to be who she was not.

I made up my mind -
let’s run away!
All gates are open,
now we are free!

No rush, no rush, walk slow and calm,
and never, no, never look back.
Make sure you see the path before,
behind lies a dark curse.

    A master of tricks,
    illusionary man.
    A fool by the throne,
    illusionary smile.
    A vision at night,
    illusionary dream.
    A step to nowhere,
    illusionary path.
    An empty mirror,
    illusionary man…

Cursed with endless life and grief,
I waited for so long
to see a power come to me,
not just walk past my life.

A ghost to call, a life to change,
water to turn to wine,
a king to serve by his throne,
yet still a fool I am.

Cursed with endless life and grief…

    A master of tricks,
    illusionary man.
    A fool by the throne,
    illusionary smile.
    A vision at night,
    illusionary dream.
    A step to nowhere,
    illusionary path.
    An empty mirror,
    illusionary man…

Lust for power brought me here,
to the town of lie and mare.
Mother Fortune, your slave I am,
but how much more can I take?

People look but cannot see,
they say what they don’t think.
The truth I know, I carry it
within my heavy soul.

And I am all alone…
And only a spider weeps for me…
