Love the Lie
You gotta love the lie You gotta love the lie Love(love) life (life) Girls (love)(life)(girls) girls and lies ? I can't hear through those veneers But you keep speaking with those pearly whites Love the life that you live if it gives love back You ain't gotta stay together for the kids If you want to disappear don't announce it Vanish in thin air and bounce quick Fix the cowlick slick your hair back Ride the rim bare back you stared at Lady Godiva might have been an exhibitionist I'm not here to judge voyeuristic fetishes If nobody looked its a closed book You could put your hang ups on a coat hook I'm from a puritanical land where they burn witches I'm the result of a welfare runnin' up your sickness Joy never came Jesus never helped We were all to blame god beat us with a belt If I heard your name I'd retreat into myself I won't hurt your name I'll keep it to myself with Love (love) life (life) Love(God) girls and lies I can't hear through those veneers But you keep speaking through those pearly whites No legacy to claim no enemies to squelch No chemical imbalance that could remedy yourself Pedestals for the parents medicine is on the shelf Put the trophy in the spotlight watch as it melts Metal wouldn't survive plastic is cheaper Ran into the fire she asked me to leave her I did what I could with the wood and the flammables Stood with the good little animals ran with the bulls Soot on my hands that were full put the good book on the mantle Burn baby burn you could serve as a candle Last thing I heard was her on the piano Last thing I saw was her being her self By beating her self to see if it could help If I heard your name I'd retreat into myself I won't hurt your name I'll keep it to myself with Love (love) life (life) Love(God) girls (girls) and lies I can't hear through those veneers But you keep speaking through those pearly whites Love the lie Love the lie Love the lie
