"Simple Lies" as written by Rick Beato, Eli Parker, Gil Bitton and Joe Eshkenazi....
Lost in gliches
Demeaning of purpose
Tied so tight
It's trying to expire

Lack of faith
A greater imagination
A perfect perseption
Of cats raining

Photographs of you....of you
Besides, Besides
Simple lies
Are what we are

And what we have
Won't hurt anymore
Simple lies
Are what we are

And what we have
Won't hurt anymore
Silently waiting
For a moment with you

As I tie you into nothing
Understand my hate for you
What is wrong
Oh, what is right

I push you through
I can't live with or without you
Besides, Besides
Simple lies

Are what we are
And what we have
Won't hurt anymore
Simple lies

Are what we are
And what we have
Won't hurt anymore
When something keeps us alive

We rest till death
I try to keep myself back
Together again

Besides, Besides
Besides, Besides
Simple lies
Are what we are

And what we have
Won't hurt anymore
Simple lies

Are what we are
And what we have
Won't hurt anymore
Simple lies

Are what we are
And what we have
Won't hurt anymore

    General CommentIts a beautiful relationship gone bad in my eyes.. He feels that he needs to be with this person, while the relationship is tearing both of them apart.

    General Commentyou know i can see that... that is how i feel when i listen to this song. i first heard it when i bought the dare devil soundtrack and i just love that soundtrack. this band is kind of unique about their music compared to the other bands out there that share the same kind of music. i like these guys a lot and i think they kick ass. this is a very beautiful song and its pretty deep as well.

    General CommentThe real lyrics:

    Lost in gliches
    Demeaning of purpose
    Tied so tight
    It's trying to expire
    Lack of faith
    A greater imagination
    A perfect perception
    of guilt-ridden
    photographs of you, of you
    Besides, Besides
    Simple lies
    Are what we are
    And what we have
    Won't hurt anymore
    Simple lies
    Are what we are
    And what we have
    Won't hurt anymore
    Silently waiting
    For a moment with you
    As I tie you into nothing
    Understand my hate for you
    What is wrong
    Oh, what is right
    I push you through
    I can't live with or without you
    Besides, Besides
    Simple lies
    Are what we are
    And what we have
    Won't hurt anymore
    Simple lies
    Are what we are
    And what we have
    Won't hurt anymore
    When something keeps us alive
    We rest till death
    I try to keep myself back
    Together again
    Besides, Besides
    Besides, Besides
    Simple lies
    Are what we are
    And what we have
    Won't hurt anymore
    Simple lies
    Are what we are
    And what we have
    Won't hurt anymore
    Simple lies
    Are what we are
    And what we have
    Won't hurt anymore

    General CommentIt's such a pity these dudes broke up because I have a feeling I would have loved some more of their music. LOVE this song to bits.

    I think maybe it's about two people who were together and, like, things got a bit messed up. And whenever this oke looks at photographs with his ex, either he feels guilty or he sees his ex as guilty. I think it's his ex though 'cause he doesn't sound regretful in the rest of the song. Whatever.
