Lyrics and pictures

Things are not what they appear / As tonight will make quite clear / But what is real will be revealed
what is real will be revealed
/ I can feel the moment's near

Things are never what they seem / That will be this evening's theme / A music sights for your delight / Perhaps a few to make you scream
You'll be surprised to see whose disguise
You'll be surprised to see whose disguise
/ Is the cleverest one of the lot / After our show the whole world will know / Who's is pretending to be what they are not

If a jesters grin or a dancers spin / Should be pleasing, please say "Yea!" / If a jugglers feat should be incomplete / He's the one to greet with "Ney"!

If the fools we see should look / like you and me / Then before the night goes by
Ask why, why, why, why... Why?
Things are not what they appear and the finest proof's right here
Things are not what they appear and the finest proof's right here

How I regret when we first meet / I believe my own worst fear

Things are never what they seem / So in keeping with our theme / A change of hair, a dress to wear / And our nightmare's now a dream

Clueless and wild I saw this sweet child / As a danger to one and to all / Savage, I thought, what could have Rolfe have brought / Now I see she is the belle of the ball

Things are never what they seem / He's right, he's right Many don't say what they mean
Many don't say what they mean
/ He's right, he's right
A powered face is just the place to hide an ugly scheme
A powered face is just the place to hide an ugly scheme


Only one things really clear

Things are not what they appear
