Leave me now – in solitude and stress.
I’ve been a better lover with your mother.
Stars and cheeks – I hate you from the heart.
I came. I went. I jawed. I saw.
You came, came, went, went, you know I saw.

Do you want to live a lie?
A lie to shake
A lie shake
I’ve been so sure.
Do you want to live a lie?
A lie to shake
A lie shake
I’ve been so sure.

I’ve come so long and been so long.
Your roots, they run.
Your roots, they run run run.
Shame shot.

Your holy headed home.
You came to me wrought with fear.
Cowbell shock
You coming

Do you want to live a lie?
A lie to shake
A lie shake
I’ve been so sure.
Do you want to live a lie?
A lie to shake
A lie shake
I’ve been so sure, so sure, so sure…

    General CommentIt doesn't matter what this song means. It's just awesome to listen to. I dare you to listen to this and hold still the hole time. You can't do it. I mean, it's not like a really dancey song or anything, but it just has this antsy, wonderful energy and it infects you.

    Also, I love the line "I've been a better lover with your mother."

    General CommentDefinitely a "good riddance" song! Or am I just projecting my recent divorce into every song I hear? Quite possible. Love the song, it makes me feel crazy free.

    General CommentWow this is a sick song thx jooce for having the latest comment. I think its about him catching his girl cheating on him.

    General CommentI think it's about cheating, It has to be. The first part of the song points entirely to it.
    The ending has me somewhat confused.

    General CommentI agree. Well I mean, about not having to know what it's about. I also find it hard to not sing/yell along to, it's one of those songs you get looks because you're singing a bit too animatedly for other drivers' tastes.
