Hey love,
Your face is full of lies
Be careful what you ask
Because she'll sell you out
You're tired
Tired of the dark
Oh you're covered in dust.
Yeah, you're covered in dust.

You don't feel right.
Can you fall from a wound like that dear?
Don't mind it's a common reaction.
They tell me everything is all right
And you don't mind.
Can you feel when you're wounded like that dear?
Don't mind it's a common reaction.
They tell me everything is all right.
And you don't mind.
You waste my time.

Ooooooh.

Do you realize you're caught
In the middle of your alibi
You've been living in a dream
And you think we'll all likely fall
I assume you lie
Based on the fact that you were always
Lying, oh you're covered in dust
Yeah, you're covered in dust.

You don't feel right.
Can you fall from a wound like that dear?
Don't mind it's a common reaction.
They tell me everything is all right
And you don't mind.
Can you feel when you're wounded like that dear?
Don't mind it's a common reaction.
They tell me everything is all right.
And you don't mind.
You waste my time.

I don't like quiet
In the rain with you
I don't like quiet
You wait for a fight
Against the wall (x2)

You don't feel right.
Can you fall from a wound like that dear?
Don't mind it's a common reaction.
They tell me everything is all right
And you don't mind.
Can you feel when you're wounded like that dear?
Don't mind it's a common reaction.
They tell me everything is all right.
And you don't mind.
You waste my time.

    General CommentThis song is about someone who is in love but won't change their lying/messy ways to be with the person of their desires, and the speaker feels like they are wasting their time with a hopeless case. Love this song.
