Macguffins of the Mind lyrics

The voices sound in every generation
The story is the same as always told
Illusive list of wrongs
Offenses deep and long
Cruel accusers in familiar molds

Trading on the dark sides of our nature
Counting on our distrust and our fear
Searching for the worst
The last become the first
Listeners hear what they want to hear

They try to vilify a hidden villain
They won't reveal the documents they clutch
And the crumbs they try to crush
Nothing real for them to touch
Just a drawing in the dust
Hidden by the underbrush
MacGuffins of the mind

The object of the chase is in the chasing
Players playing hard to win the game
Staging guilty scenes
The ends outweigh the means
All is fair in placing of the blame

They fabricate the fictional MacGuffins
Devious designers in command
Shady sleight of hand
Distractions from the plan
Loyalties and secrets on demand

The try to vilify a hidden villain....
