"I Lied My Face Off" as written by and Matt Skiba Glenn Porter....
Well it's not fair, it's not even close
You tied me down where I'm forced to watch
As you poke holes in every part of me
Containing something secretly
Something sacred to me
I lied my face off when I said that I would be okay
It's never fine when you go away
These cuts run deep, these scars are permanent
And always on display
This makes things difficult for me

It's not fair, it's not even close
You fed me the sun, burned me up inside
And watched me choke on everything we did
On everything we lived
Let's see if I can live again
I lied my face off when I said that I would be okay
It's never fine when you go away
These cuts run deep, these scars are permanent
And always on display
This makes things difficult for me

Head like an empty, sterile room
Somehow I made a mess
Like watching newborn babies crack
from work related stress
Head like an empty, sterile room
Somehow I made a mess
Like watching newborn babies crack
from work related stress
I'm bad luck, can't fuck, got no reflection today
Maybe I'll stay down next time I get hit by a train
By a train
I lied my face off when I said that I would be okay
It's never fine when you go away

    General CommentThis is a brilliant song about, well, a breakup like just about every song by Alkaline Trio. The lyrics of their songs are just... quite possibly the ebst in emo, but then again it's a good genre. I mean, come on, "like watching newborn babies crack from work related stress", that's BRILLIANT!

    I'd want to listen to this song at a point where I felt like crap. Thankfully that hasn't really happened yet.

    General CommentEhh... I would consider this emo but you may be right. After all most AT songs rock pretty hard and emo is usually melancholy.

    General Comment"these cuts run deep, these scars are permanent, and always on display." This is what I listened to [along with NIN's "hurt" -hence the username-] when I cut and was suicidal. I felt like everyone was leaving and everything was worthless.. and all efforts to be happy were futile.

    "head like an empty sterile room. somehow i made a mess." hehe... makes me think of the good ol' prozac days.
