Last week I posted a poem and a song called Asbestos Skies and I mentioned it is an unofficial companion piece to a song written many years ago under the guise of my band Crimson Flight. I have found the lyrics to Chemical Lies and I wanted to share them with you.

Chemical Lies

I know we’re in trouble I can see it in the skies

I know we’re in danger it happens all the time

I can feel the warning in those chemical lies

There’s oil-slicked danger with your power to deny


Chemical lies

Oh your chemical highs

They’re killing me killing me

Chemical lies

Oh you cannibalise all those lives that you buy

And it’s killing me killing me


Your notion of freedom is bleeding me dry

Delusions of grandeur no longer benign

I can feel the terror from your oval disguise

Oh my


Chemical lies

Oh your chemical highs

Your chemical eyes

They’re killing me killing me

Chemical lies

Oh you cannibalise all those lives that you buy

And it’s killing me killing me


Nothing’s as it seems my boy

Nothing’s as it seems

Drift off it’s obscene my boy

Drift off to a dream


Chemical lies

Oh your chemical eyes

Are killing me

killing me
