The Confessor Lyrics

The Confessor - Joe Walsh

Written by:Joe Walsh

If you look at your reflection in the bottom of a well


What you see is only on the surface


When 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 when you're there


On the bottom words are shallow


On the surface talk is cheap


You can only 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 comments

The guilt and doubt and shame


The "what ifs" and "if onlys"


The shackles and the chains


The violence and aggression


The pettiness and scorn


The jealousy and hatred


The tempest and discord
