gleaming house glowing lives
golden family all good no surprise
silence is golden don’t look back
deny all memories black

keeping up the show

threaten all who contradict
excommunication the big stick
like a ferris wheel cycling round
cowed family make no sound

keeping up the show

fearfully we play our roles
bitterness growing in the soul
a master of disguise
obesity screams out it’s lies

keeping up the show

facing all our past realities
helps all except you to be free
we healed can only watch and pray
for redemption’s advent day

closing down the show
