"Secrets And Lies" as written by and Gavin Rossdale....
Transformation, we become someone else
Dislocation, as we get so far from ourselves
My condition is getting worse, I can't do without
Addiction is the lust that won't let you out

All your secrets and your lies
Walk fast out of burning buildings
Kill youth with easy listening
You got to keep terror at a healthy distance
Fine, from time to time

Conversations, something of the past
Investigations, with everything I hold his back
Your contrition is deserved, you'd like to disappear
Find a new home, for your salty tears

All your secrets and your lies
Walk fast out of burning buildings
Kill youth with easy listening
You got to keep terror at a healthy distance
Godspeed, to sustain illusions
Fine, from time to time
Fine, was the land-mines, land-mines

Walk fast out of burning buildings
Kill youth with easy listening
Godspeed, to sustain illusions
Godspeed, to sustain illusions (Godspeed)
Walk fast, walk fast
Got to keep terror at a healthy distance (Godspeed)
Got to keep terror at a healthy distance

    General CommentAbout transforming to become someone else, pretending, etc. Due to the terror of things around you, you try to adapt to survive but it's not really you and you struggle to keep everything in so you're crying inside. I think the "kill youth with easy listening" is about getting rid of your innocence and what made you you but due to listening and believing things around you, you lie to yourself and keep your true self a secret eventually killing that youth/innocence inside.
