I've Been Deceived Again

So many times I've been deceived
And I don't know how it happens
    It seems that I will not listen
    But I hear them words anyway
    They cycle through my head
    And I think I've figured out a way

The day turns into darkness
Filled with delusions
I am blessed with confusion

Reality hits me in the face
I feel like such a disgrace

There is a natural way
You've been there all along
Why can't you stick to it
Seeing what it has to say
But instead you turn and go
Every which way

But in my defense
I've learned something new
Just like I always do
It has made me a little stronger
I can see things much better
Maybe being deceived
Finding I've been fooled
Is me
Growing in a natural way
