I've never been better than you see me today
Can't remember a time that I felt this way
I've never been better so you don't need to ask
We can both pretend that we don't know what lies behind this mask

What leaves a mark can't be forgotten
What's in the dark when you can't see
Behind the lace and velvet, something's rotten
I've never been better 'cause I never knew how much better I could be

You've never been better, you're looking fine
It seems like forever, sure been a long time
You've never been better, as far as you know
We can both pretend we can't see how far you still have to go

What leaves a mark can't be forgotten
What's in the dark when you can't see
Behind the lace and velvet, something's rotten
You never got better 'cause you never knew how much better you could be

But that's no crime, everybody's guilty
We're all doing time till death sets us free
We pay the price and we're forgiven
For stealing life from the living

It's never been better than it is today
In the land of the free, everybody gets their say
It's never been better, don't tell me I'm wrong
We can all pretend we knew what we were doing all along

But what leaves a mark can't be forgotten
What's in the dark when you can't see
Behind the lace and velvet, something's rotten
It never got better 'cause we never knew how much better it could be

What leaves a mark can't be forgotten
No Noah's Ark could save our skins
In the house as white as a dove, something's rotten
Raise your glass and drink a toast to this land of holy in
It never got better 'cause we never knew how good it could have been
