These tired eyes
this tired heart
let's settle for the moment
we'll just give up
we'll just play dead
we'll drown ourselves in quiet
so kiss my cheek
and we'll pretend
that this is so much better

Please stop us I confess
We are liars, we are broken,
we are lying in this bed of shame
please stop me I confess
I'm a liar, I am broken,
I'm so utterly confused

The ceilings stare
this wasted life
was it all you hoped for?
these faces red
what have we done
more clouds of smoke in my head
so what's your name?
what do you like?
oh this is so much better?

Please stop us I confess
We are liars, we are broken,
we are lying in this bed of shame
please stop me I confess
I'm a liar, I am broken,
I'm so utterly confused

So utterly confused
we're so utterly confused
we're so utterly confused

    General CommentI saw these guys do this song live, and I think it's a beautiful, in a screamo way, song and I CAN'T FUCKING FIND IT ANYWHERE! D:

    General CommentGreat song. BusRoof, you can find this one on their new Split EP with Ettison Clio. Very melodic though this particular song doesn't strike me as "screamo". That era was back with Light A Match... More apologetic... Like he's admitting his faults and shortcomings and lack of value.

    General CommentAlways seemed to me like an affair that was kept secret. The singer seems to look at it dubiously or sarcastically ("oh, this is so much better.." -- "we'll pretend that this is so much better"). While the girl seems to keep it ongoing, he doesn't necessarily resist it (I'm/We're so utterly confused). It's like he's admitting that their affair is shallow and meaningless (lying in this bed of shame) and therefore, even more unethical they he had previously thought (please stop us, i confess I'm a Liar).
