Make a big scene
Make this glass house my coffin
You miss the big picture
Well it's the words that you're coughin' out,
out on your sleeve
So forge my sins here in song
Well I'm telling you now what you've known all along
And it's tired, so true,
More subtle than you
There's a lull in the stereo
It's calling for you (calling for you)
It's calling for you

Well I'm a slave to my vices
It's true
They've all been renamed as a crutch
So drag my name and my face through the mud
Flattery can flatter me (flattery can flatter me)
Show us just how vicious you can be
Do what you came here to do (do what you came here to do)
Trigger finger gets you pointed in the right direction
My new found discretion

It's not a lie if you believe it
It's no mistake if it's always repeated
It's not a lie if you believe it
It's no mistake if it's always repeated

Shall we call it quits or just wait? (It's not a lie If you believe it)
Even, even if my last name rhymes with your rescue of hear say
Do not say you know (It's no mistake if it's repeated)
Call me out
It's not a lie (It's such a lie)
But I don't need to hear it from you
So what's another word for (I don't need to hear it from you)
What's another word for (I don't need to hear it from you)
What's another word for (I don't need to hear it from you)
What's another word for (I don't need to hear it from you)

It gets easier with doses of time (easier with doses of time)
Easier with doses of time (easier with doses of time)
Easier with doses of time (easier with doses of time)
Easier with doses of time (easier with doses of time)
Show us just how vicious you can be (be)

    General CommentOH MY GOD I LOVE THIS BAND, this song is amazing, i was worred they wouldnt sounds the same when they regrouped with half of that other band (cant think of the name at the moment) but obviously this song proves i had no reason to worry

    General CommentThis song is about the former TBS singer John Nolan who has songs about the TBS front man Adam Lazzara with Nolan's new band Straylight Run. The line "whats another word for?" comes from SR and TBS replies I dont need to hear it from you. Lazzara also makes references to how Nolan just completely bashes Lazzara and the rest of TBS in the media and other songs like "Its everyone's fault but mine" oh and TBS's new cd will be absolutely amazing, It better be as good as Brand New's deja entendu or I'll cry.

    General CommentUnfortunatly, after talking to mark of TBS i found out that this song wont be on the new record or any for that matter, or playing it live, theyre just dropping the song. I thing its flattery can flatter me rather than better at confronting me and reneged as apposed to renamed.
