Neal Morse – Author Of Confusion lyrics

Author of confusion you play inside my mind and I want to run
But where can I hide?
Author of confusion your aim is to confound 'til I do not know
Which is up or down?
Author of confusion you play inside my mind and I want to run
But where can I hide?
"Author of confusion you start an endless chase; thoughts start running 'round"
Never find their place
Author of confusion your aim is to confound 'til I do not know
Which is up or down?

Low or high
The truth is I don't know

Author of confusion you play inside my mind and I want to run
But where can I hide?
"Author of confusion you start an endless chase; thoughts start running 'round"
But never find their place
Author of confusion your aim is to confound 'til I do not know
Which is up or down?

Day or night
Who knows right from wrong?

How long will stay tied to the mast?
How long 'til you reach for me at last?
Aren't you tired of living in the cold?
How long 'til you come to claim the gold?

You are like a raven in the night
You fly high but you're sleeping in the light
The waves will crash and the mighty winds will roar
Why can't we be the way we were before?

Author of confusion you play inside my mind
Author of confusion you live to make me blind

Author of confusion you play inside my mind and I want to run
But where can I hide?
"Author of confusion you start an endless chase; thoughts start running 'round"
Never find their place
Author of confusion your aim is to confound 'til I do not know
Which is up or down?

I'm in a Cage

As the dream floats by ('neath the towering sky)
There's a move to move me forward
But it only lasts 'til I fall on yesterday

With opinions thrown (like the crowd's first stone)
And the world of men is nowhere
I have a sense of freedom but it feels so far away

'Cause I'm in a cage (of my own making)
I never wanted to be this way
I'm in a cage (my heart is breaking)
But I'll tough it out today

I could move way in (I could move way out)
I could move all the way to Cairo
"But someone would be there; someone that I know too well"

I wanna change my mind (wanna change my heart)
I just need some relief but I know
That it just won't come, that is as long as I'm myself

'Cause I'm in a cage (of my own making)
I never wanted to be this way
I'm in a cage (my heart is breaking)
But I'll tough it out today

I'm in a cage (of my own making)
And now I forgot what the reason is
I'm in a cage (the toll's been taking)
But I guess that's all there is...

There's a reason why the storm is raging
There's a reason why you feel alone (the man's gone to make his way alone)
There's a reason why your soul's been caged in
Can't you feel your need to come back home? (the man's gone)
Feel your need to come back home (the man's gone)
Feel your need to come back home
