looking inwardly lyrics – chameleons

i delve into myself ceaselessly
but i rarely see
what i want to see
embracing the future
forgetting the past
love lost and misfortune
the chaos and the cr*ss

i’m wary of you
but you’re oblivious to me
i’m chained to your ego
and there isn’t a key
i play with emotions
but never my own
don’t you recognise me
try looking inwardly

but you won’t see me

such a strange situation
as i wallow in waste
that such a trivial victory
should put a smile on your face
using me as the scapegoat
for what you want to believe
so i’ll just bow out politely
and tip my cap as i leave

comme ci, comme ca

my eyes are wide open
yours are closed
it’s time you realised i’m a part of you

look inwardly
don’t bleed for me
look to yourself
