Magic is money. Make believe sells.
From lottery tickets to wishing wells.
Mystical drugs. Imaginary ills.
From mood suppression to diet pills.

Mirror Mirror
On the Wall
Who are the greatest Fools of all? (We are!)

Strength in a bottle. A jar full of youth.
We'll pay for fantasy instead of the truth.
Motivation and Psychiatry
There's always a cure, and there's always a fee.

All the illusions are not what they seem.
They charge you to hope, and they charge you to dream.
Escape in a movie. Escape in a drink.
Escape in religion so you don't have to think.

On the Wall
Who are the greatest Fools of all? (We are!)

As long as we're gullible and willing to pay
There's a line of folks to take our money away.
Magicians that tell you all that you can achieve.
Just whip out your checkbook and pay to believe.

No need to suffer your chosen abuse.
They'll whip up a syndrome with a doctor's excuse.
Invest in a answer that they'll never find
because they don't make money, if you just change your mind.
