lyrics

We are
wasting waterfalls
We are
scared to death
I passed out
in the blaring moonshine
I’m in over my head

But if we creep past quietly
we’ll keep away from daylight
And since we’re not sleepwalkers really
they’ll see our opened eyes
Caught in a lie
Caught in a lie

You told me
I was something special
You get me every time
What’s wrong with needing affirmation?
Oh right -
it spoils the rhyme

And if your heart
mistakes this thunder
for something more discreet
I’ll wreak and rend
your love asunder
until I am complete
Caught in a lie
Caught in a lie

This darkness
makes me feel so cheesy
like I was still a small child
And you don’t care about
old movies
Thought black and white’s
your new style

But if we creep past quietly
we’ll keep away from daylight
And since we’re not sleepwalkers really
they’ll see our opened eyes
Caught in a lie
Caught in a lie

So just pass me by
