Living A Lie
from "Charmer" ( 2012)
You can see yourself in the side mirror
tossing your hair
if no one is there
why do you care
Though I let you think there was no witness to
all of your crimes
I knew what you were:
a climber who climbs

I’m living a lie
you’re living it too
cause I live it with you
I’m living a lie
a lie I can’t tell
so we wait for a crack in the shell

No one bears a grudge like a boy genius
Just past his prime
Gilding his cage
One bar at a time
For every open arm there's a cold shoulder
Waiting to turn
People to blame
Bridges to burn

I’m living a lie
you’re living it too
cause I live it with you
I’m living a lie
a lie I can’t tell
so we wait for a crack in the shell

A girl comes around at a time when your ground
is as shaky as leaves on a tree
creating for you a persona or two
or an out-and-out mythology
Now there’s too many cooks but you like how it looks
when they’re bowing and calling you “boss”
but the powers that were, were invested in her
and now winning means taking a loss

I’m living a lie
you’re living it too
cause I live it with you
I’m living a lie
a lie I can’t tell
so we wait for a crack in the shell
