I don't want to be hostile
I don't want to be dismal
But I don't want to rot in an apathetic existence either
See I want to believe you,
And I want to trust you
And I want to have faith to put away the dagger
But you lie, cheat, and steal
But you lie, cheat, and steal
But you lie, cheat, and steal
And yet I tolerate you

But you lie, cheat, and steal
But you lie, cheat, and steal
But you lie, cheat, and steal
And yet I tolerate you

Veil of virtue hung to hide your method
While I smile and laugh and dance
And sing your praise and glory
Shroud of virtue hung to mask your stigma
As I smile and laugh and dance
And sing your glory
While you lie, cheat, and steal
But you lie, cheat, and steal
But you lie, cheat, and steal
And yet I tolerate you

But you lie, cheat, and steal
But you lie, cheat, and steal
But you lie, cheat, and steal
And yet I tolerate you

Our guilt, our blame
I've been far too sympathetic
Our blood, our fault
I've been far too sympathetic
I am not innocent
I am not innocent
You are not innocent
No one is innocent

You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
You lie, cheat, and steal
And yet I tolerate you

I will no longer tolerate you
I will no longer tolerate you
If I must go down beside you
No one is innocent
