All the lies they say Trying to keep you safe Doing wrong for your own good Never good enough for you White lies they tell Are the lines we all know well
"You gotta follow your heart" "Always shoot for the stars" "Hurts me more than it hurts you" "Someday you'll understand" Words serve to keep You under unknown discipline Is that good for me? I'm willing to believe
There's a different way to go A direction no one knows Running with my eyes closed
'Cause I like the feeling Crashing without seeing Overconfidence that's been declared Hides someone unprepared White lies we tell Do we understand them well?
Like the words of a song Re assured they will flow From your tongue Think you're too smart to ever submit Just think again You have bought into all of it You've been made to believe and to preach on command
What's the reason in the end? Ask the over confidents Sing me a song that can lead Me astray, can lead me astray Forget my problems, and drink them all away Drink them all away Paint me a picture I need it today
