Joe Walsh - The Confessor Lyrics

The Confessor
written: J. Walsh

If you look at your reflection in the bottom of a well
What you see is only on the surface
If you try to see the meaning hidden underneath
The measure of the depth can be deceiving
The bottom has a rocky reputation
You can feel it in the distance, the deeper down you stare
From up above it's hard to see, but you know it'when you're there
On the bottom, words are shallow; on the surface, talk is cheap
You can damn near judge the distance by the company you keep
In the eyes of the Confessor

In the eyes of the Confessor
There's no place you can hide
You can't hide from the eyes
Of the Confessor
Don't you even try
In the eyes of the Confessor
You can't tell a lie
You cannot tell a lie
To the Confessor
Strip you down to size
Naked as the day that you were born
Naked as the day that you were born

Take all the trauma, drama, commas
Guilt and doubt and shame
The 'what if's and 'if only's
The shackles and chains
The violence and aggression
The bitterness and scorn
The jealousy and hatred
The tempest and discord
And give it up!
