Compromise my enigmatic burn up
lights that never go out, you look so genuine
with the moon rise you're sympathetic failure
mistaken as a traitor, no one ever wins

So you should quit while you're ahead
while you leading in the polls
with your centre stage control
your the best in your field

But with the sun set you're never gonna know why
pictures of the black sky cover up your shield

So tell me what I believe
tell what it is I need
tell me you'll provide it for me yes
and I will do anything for you
I'll do anything you tell me to
I'll mistake the lies you sell me for the truth

Say it, say it like it is
you got thirty seconds kid
you got all the time you need

Gibberish, stupid talking nonsense
don't forget your audience
fail or succeed

Keep face, don't let your guard down
it's the judgement of your home town
the trees, they grow so high

But in a safe place, you could be yourself now
feel free to let your hair down
you don't have to hide

So tell me what I believe
tell me what it is I need
tell me you'll provide it for me yes
and I will do anything for you
I'll do anything you tell me to
I'll mistake the lies you sell me for the truth

    General CommentI'm not 100% certain about the first verse of this song so if anyone else thinks that they hear different just let me know and I'll edit it.

    I really like this band and wish they were better known. Great indie rock tune.
