"Come Clean" as written by and Stacy/dupree Dupree....
Mister, I don't believe in you
Mister, I don't believe in you
Just come clean all around me
With your head bleeds and your nosebleeds, too
I don't see that there's a truth
In the way you're talking to me

But let's give it a try
Let's keep it for truth
Why do you want to fall to pieces?
Let's give it a try
Let's keep it for truth
And come clean all around me
And come clean all around me, oh

Mister, I don't believe in you
Mister, I don't believe in you
With the way you're talking to me
Oh, it's so soothing

And let's give it a try
Let's keep it for truth
Why do you want to fall to pieces?
Let's give it a try
Let's keep it for truth
And come clean all around me
And come clean all around me

Would you come clean all around me?
Just come clean all around me, oh

Listen to me
You pull me apart
And I know it wasn't you
Cause you were not there
And why do you feel sorry?

Let's give it a try
Let's keep it for truth
Why do you want to fall to pieces?
Let's give it a try
Let's keep it for truth
And come clean all around me
And come clean all around me

Would you come clean all around me?
Just come clean all around me, oh

Come clean all around me
Come clean all around me
Would you come clean all around me?
Just come clean all around me, oh

    General CommentShe doesn't trust him but she still wants to make something work. I guess that's what it seems to be on the surface!

    General CommentI think this song is about an alcoholic father. I think when she talks about, "Youre head bleeds and you're nose bleeds too" she's describing his injuries, confirming suspicions that he's drinking again. I think he lies to her and says he's not drinking, so she wants him to Come Clean and admit he's fallen off the wagon. When she says, " I know it wasn't you, cuz you were not there" she's talking about how he's a completely person when he's drunk.

    General Commentt0rnX, I have a hard time imagining anyone in Eisley even *having* sex, much less referencing it so explicitly in a song. Get your head out of the gutter!

    General Commenti think of addiction when i hear this. or someone who struggles with some sort of personal demon. and about having faith in that person, even if they are completely damaged and messy.

    come clean, kick the habit, and let's get to living. i looooove this song.

    General CommentThey said in an interview that this song was about their friend who was on drugs, but denying it. Just asking for the truth and such.
