This song explores the "impostor syndrome" and how too many people that should have more confidence don't have enough, while many of the wrong people, especially people in power have way too much confidence.


The master of all you survey
Your truth is the fact
Wide eyes hanging on your next word
Perfecting the act

One more day another dollar
Cash out in the end
How long til they all discover
That It’s all just pretend

Lost in the clouds
As I play the clown
I made you smile, like a child

It keepsyou up at night
Flashes of deep insight
Let’s see how far they’ll bend
You fooled them once again

So close to that big promotion
Keep feeding that flame
Caged rat going through the motions
Just a slave to this game

Lost in the clouds
As I play the crowd
Pulled the wool over your eyes

You question all of it
Maybe you’re full of shit
Life is a big charade
And yet you still get paid

(PC) You question all of it
Maybe I’m full of shit
Life is a big charade
Looks like we all got played

Everybody’s got an imposter syndrome
Except the fools that run the world
Stoking fears with smoke and mirrors
Turning pebbles into pearls
