Half-Truism
by The Offspring



One is for envy and one just for spite
The country in my heart, they show me new lies
It don´t make it better
Twisting lies through the station on to someone else
Stop the operation, we'll leave this behind
We'll treat the error bearing on your mind
It won´t make it better chucking it out
It never mattered anyway...

If we don't make it alive
It's a hell of a good day to die.
Our life, half truism
Only lasts for so long.
And it's ashes to ashes again
Should we even try to pretend?
Our life, half truism
Only lasts for so long.

Whatever you're waking is burning away
Lock it in, it's alright, and try and go ahead against the world,
Diamonds and dust are seeming stranger
Watch the scene revert
Our generation will leave this behind
It sees the error bearing on your mind
It won´t make it better
Broken or blessed, it never mattered anyway...

If we don't make it alive
It's a hell of a good day to die.
Our life, half truism
Only lasts for so long.
Well it's ashes to ashes again
Should we even try to pretend?
Our life, half truism
Only lasts for so long.

While you are waiting
Burning away
Against the world
Talking to p...
It never mattered, mattered, mattered anyway...

If we don't make it alive
It's a hell of a good day to die.
Our life, half truism
Only lasts for so long.
And it's ashes to ashes again
Should we even try to pretend?
Our life, half truism
Only lasts for so long.
Our life, half truism
Only lasts for so long!
