Among distant family
Bloodlines remain
You`ll never shed your “win fast” legacy
But I attempt to steer away
From bleak conclusions
Once again, I`m soft and I lose this way

And all the smoke is gone
And you know what`s in the box
And you`ll throw down your trump card-
“You can trust me” catch-22
but with all the depth of a teardrop
Scrub tub and a washboard-
Think it`s time to get clean

Don`t say such permanent things
When you know that you won`t always mean them
A big lie
Do you feel okay that your words are a sock in my eye?
And your permanent things
Don`t say such permanent things

Check off your list of things to do-
Gotta keep the score way ahead
Gotta practice your victory dance
And my harsh feelings
Are just a few of millions
Strike up the grill and burn all of your enemies

And as the curtains rise
You`ll show me what`s in the box
But in ten to twenty seconds
Your capricious side will have shown
And you know it won`t even matter

Don`t say such permanent things
When you know that you won`t always mean them
A big lie
Do you feel okay with deceit you can always get by?
And your permanent things
Don`t say such permanent things

Climbing high and looking down
I didn`t learn a thing
But how to hold my breath
And you with the upper hand now
You afford to never look back and
There you go again
How can I fit all of this in a recycling bin?

Don`t say such permanent things
When you know that you won`t always mean them
A big lie
Do you feel okay that your words are sock in my eye?
And your permanent things
Don`t say such permanent things

Don`t say such permanent things
When you know that you won`t always mean them
A big lie
Do you feel okay with deceit you can always get by?
And your permanent things
Don`t say such permanent things
