I CONFESS
Simmons, Tamplin

[Rhy. Fig 1] (2x)

[Rhy. Fig 1] (2x)
When I look into the mirror
Just can't believe, what do I see
[Rhy. Fig 2]
There's no wakin' from this nightmare
And you're lost in your reality

[Rhy. Fig 1]
So you tell me all your secrets
And you tell me that you're innocent
[Rhy. Fig 3]
There's something in your eyes I can see
And my face keeps looking back at me
[Rhy. Fig 4]

[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ Rhy. Fig 7]
You confess
This living lie that you can't go on
[Rhy. Fig 6 w/ Rhy. Fig 8]
You're possessed
You can't fool yourself
You're the crime and you can't go on

[Rhy. Fig 1]
Another day, another sorrow
No today and no tomorrow
[Rhy. Fig 2]
Try and wash away the shame
And you smile in your picture frame

[Rhy. Fig 1]
You had a charmed life, but you fell from grace
And you're long gone without a trace
[Rhy. Fig 3]
You're all alone and wonder why
And you laugh when you wanna cry
[Rhy. Fig 4]

[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ Rhy. Fig 7] (2x)
You confess
This living lie that you can't go on
You're possessed
You can't fool yourself
You're the crime and you can't go on

[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ Rhy. Fig 7]
You confess
This living lie that you can't go on
[Rhy. Fig 6 w/ Rhy. Fig 8]
You're possessed
You can't fool yourself
You're the crime and it can't go on

[Rhy. Fig 9] (6x)
It can't go on
[Riff 1]So livin' in our lies will test the faith

[Solo over Rhy. Fig 10]
[Rhy. Fig 1]
So cut your straight lines on the mirror
And dip your hands in holy water
[Rhy. Fig 3]
Try and wash away the shame
Cuz all you've got is your father's name

[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ Rhy. Fig 7] (2x)
You confess
This living lie that you can't go on
You're possessed
You can't fool yourself
You're the crime and you can't go on

[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ Rhy. Fig 7]
You confess
