Steel Train – Cellophane And Glass lyrics

I would rather watch a sunset
Through cellophane and glass
Then ask just why we fly
So why you got to rock the boat
Ain't it time for you to choke
My love, on your epiphany

So keep one eye open
'Cause what you see ain't what you got

I sold my hate
To the man with a master plan
To run the world that I ran from

Last time I had left you
This time we are leaving truth
In a quest to lose it all
And fall with style
'Cause even these empty hands
Can hold the way to your promise land and my soul
Mind and body will render the crime

So why you gotta be so cruel
And use me like a tool
That will never fix our love

I know that it's time to give it all up
When it all is so corrupt
And I'm torn from child and lust
Time is sublime when pain's a rhyme
I know you thought them stars would align for you
Oh but beauty is my light
