cheer up, cherub
why's your halo burning out
a mutual friend
it makes me scream and shout

you hear the creaks above your bed
you hear my girlfriend cum laude
kiss her hand in front of me
and take her out when i'm not around

so? well?
is there a lie that you will not tell
there's no reversing the spell
of if you don't who will

my body is a building
and i am burning down
i will burn, burn, burn
until i hear no sound

i ask my friends for their advice
they say, boy, what goes around
little by little they lift the veil
that you wear so well

so? well?
is there a lie that you will not tell
there's no reversing the spell
of if you don't who will

so win, we will
is there a lie that you will not tell
there's no reversing the spell
of if you don't who will

    General CommentThis is an awesome song. The drumming is spectacular and the everything is arranged so well. The ridiculous energy from the whole thing is simply amazing. Judah's voice is really something is really something.

    God I love that line!

    This is the song that got me into TVT and a lot of other new music.
