lyrics

I want to try, I want to build, I want to steal
I want to speak to people's faces and negotiate a deal
So I tried
It didn't fair so well and I failed around the block
Attempts were like chasing down a broken clock
Timeless
Barely holding on to my institution
I held my hands over my ears and made this thin illusion
For you

I led you to believe things that weren't true, I gave into my fears
I lied to you
I lied to you for years

Rationalizations are quite a skill of mine
I'm poor at swaying others, but I can change my own mind
To anything
It'll all be okay, it'll work itself out
I'll push it to the side so it's nothing to think about
No problem

So I led you to believe things that weren't true, I gave into my fears
I lied to you
I lied to you for years

I'm not sure what you expected of me
I suspect it wasn't to lie to your face
I keep on hoping and waiting to see
But nothing seems to fall into place

I thought about putting some effort in to grow
But I had a second thought about my hanging just below
Mediocre
It's not so bad, in fact I think it's kinda nice
I could get used to slipping up and no one looking twice
No batting eyes

So I led you to believe things that weren't true, I gave into my fears
I lied to you
I lied to you for years

I'm not sure what you expected of me
I suspect it wasn't to lie to your face
I keep on hoping and waiting to see
But nothing seems to fall into place

I'm not sure what you expected of me
I suspect it wasn't to lie to your face
I keep on hoping and waiting to see
But nothing seems to fall into place

I'm not sure what you expected of me
I suspect it wasn't to lie to your face
I keep on hoping and waiting to see
But nothing seems to fall into place
