I feel extremely proud of this one. Not sure why.
I think I just captured exactly what was in my head at the time.

Crit For Crit!

Deceived
Wipe your tear stained eyes,
Open them up and find,
One day they’ll be set alight,
By smiles of friends tonight,

Borrowing shoulders to lean on,
Sometimes it just hurts and hurts,
And for the guilty parties,
It gets worse, and worse,

Chorus
For all the smiles you’ve received,
Did you know you’ve been deceived?
What did they know?
What did they never think to show?

I am not so prosaic,
To be such a pillar of faith,
You might not be able to rely on me,
But I’ll spell it in black and white,

You seem so convinced that,
You’ve done nothing wrong,
I’ve become dangerous goods,
Something you won’t speak of,

Chorus
For all the smiles you’ve received,
Little did you know, you’ve been deceived,
What did they know?
What did they never think to show?

Bridge
Friends may be comforting shoulders,
But with information their so uptight,
They knew all along,
But they’ll be surprised tonight,
