so aren't you disappointed yet? wasting a kiss at a point in time when brothers betray and lovers fall from truth with eyes closed tight. putting too much stock in it, a touch, lock in on it because it's only cold at night when you sleep alone. so aren't you disappointed yet? mouth in fist at a point in time when no one's supposed to find out about it. but is it sill considered lying if it's through silence? out of sight, out of mind, right? but i have to ask. how do you sleep at night knowing it's all painted, knowing it's all fake? oil based, two faced and drowning. believing in what was someone else but leaving with what is something less than what it was worth. years of wasted time and energy. years of tasting wine all with me. does it hurt? you ask me does it hurt? (yeah it's fucking tragic) waking up on the wrong side of golden, eyes finally opened, when stooping low tends to be a trend for you. "i'm not a good person, i just play one on t.v." that should be your motto if you ask me.

    General CommentI have loved OI forever, and this is my favorite song. Not only does it sound great instrumentally, but it also has such deep lyrics. I really love lyrics that refer to looking deep inside yourself. i dont know why...i just like people to be real i guess. when i saw OI in december '02 Dave said this is his fave song too. *sigh* check them out, they're awesome. orangeisland.net

    General CommentI think this is a song again about a girl who took the guy for granted. And just does her own thing teasing people around and d*cked him over to get with his friend. Internse lyrics esp. "I'm not a good person, I just play one on t.v."

    General Commentthis song is incredible --- i really can't figure out why this band isn't more popular. They are better than most bands out there.
