you know those sayings meant to break your fall?
"it's better to love and to lose" and so on and so on
i think i've heard them too many times
cause they don't change nothing
they don't ease my mind

so shut your mouth and open your eyes
they're just dirty lies your mother tells you to make the pain subside
dirty lies you hold onto like a lover in the night
dirty lies you can call it wisdom, i call it denial
so keep, just keep your dirty lies

my pocket's empty but you say my heart's full
well i need something my five fingers can hold
and maybe time will heal all my wounds
but i'm sick of waiting to see if it's true

so try your best i will not be fooled
they're just dirty lies your mother tells you to make the pain subside
dirty lies you hold onto like a lover in the night
dirty lies you can call it wisdom, i call it denial
so keep, just keep your dirty lies
