It’s a mystery to me

It’s a mystery to me
The game commences
For the usual fee
Plus expenses
Confidential information
It’s in a diary
This is my investigation
It’s not a public inquiry

I go checking out the report
Digging up the dirt
You get to meet all sorts
In this line of work
Treachery and treason
There’s always an excuse for it
And when I find the reason
I still can’t get used to it

And what have you got at the end of the day ?
What have you got to take away ?
A bottle of whisky and a new set of lies
blinds on the window and a pain behind the eyes

Scarred for life
No compensation
Private investigations

Mark Knopfler, is genius thy middle name ?

    Life is such (especially for a person who has a heart)!!. Highly appreciate your taste. I am sure you are in one of those moods where you want to sit down with a good friend of yours with a peg of whiskey and have a philosophical conversation.

    Nameless (Whats in a name?)

    Mark Knopfler is one of those geniuses who ‘speak’ with htheir guitars!
    His solo albums are great too. Vintage Mark!

    This is one of my personal favorites though many want to disagree with my choice. Atleast now I feel vindicated! 🙂

    The “rough at times and smooth at other” voice of Mark Knofler lends this song its enigmatic touch!
