Now Wash Your Hands (1994 / Live At La Cigale Theatre, Paris)

Marillion

When you look into the mirror
Do you see a face you hardly recognise
If you look into the sun too long
Do the things you see begin to burn your eyes

Paper lies
Just to express what he's thinking
Must a man take all the mail will bring?
Are we living only for today

It's a sign of the times ... we believe anything ... and nothing
Paper lies
When you kill the truth
You can make a killing

You might just make losing look like winning
You came to tell the people what's goin' on
But nobody knows whose side you're on
Seems like you're sailin' pretty close to the wind again

Paper lies
You have already won a prize!
I know something that you don't know
Something that you ought to know

It's burning a hole in my pocket book
Listen ... do you want to know a secret?
We can print our own money here
If you let us do a piece on you

We can take you to pieces
When you look into the money do you see a face you hardly recognise?
When you get behind the news of the world do the things you find begin to bend your mind?
Paper lies

Why don't ya let us take a piece outta you?
