about

The masks we wear are illusions and defenses, but in the face of love that resonates deep inside us, our walls seem flimsy and our illusions seem like transparent attempts at sleight of hand.

lyrics

well you break me down so easily
and you crack the walls here surrounding me
and i'm so exposed and so incomplete
in the naked truth you so clearly see

and this sleight of hand is my only defense and you know
that this sleight of hand is my only defense from you
and if you should break in through my walls i wouldn't know what to do
what to do

well you have no doubt i'll be back again
so you ruin me because you know you can
and i'm suffering but i'll never learn
how to keep you out when you want back in

and this sleight of hand is my only defense and you know
that this sleight of hand is my only defense from you
and if you should break in through my walls i wouldn't know what to do
what to do

... and this sleight of hand ...
... and this sleight of hand ...

and i've wondered how much more now i can take
until i bleed to death from all the wounds you've made
but if you would care to make a few more i'd always let you back in
let you back in
