[chorus] x2
All your secrets stay safe
All your liars will lay
All your stories are staged
On that mattress

Ain't no way to ignore yourself
A lot to say, no one to tell
We all think you so cool
Cause nobody knows that nobody knows you
Paint brush, color up them flaws
Break up, send them broken laws
You can't share all the facts
With a homemade crosshair on your back
Everybody wanna tell the tale
Like the chips might fall but they never fail
You still don't realize, take a look around
Do we seem surprised?
So we don't even need to know
About the poor decisions that feed your growth
Nah, we just wanna see the now what?
Can you keep a secret, can you keep your mouth shut?

[chorus] x2

You can't even tell your mirror
Anyon can seem so sincere
Watch whatever you volunteer
Voices argue all over here
She was pointing at a hand
When she said, "Let's move this ball to the bed"
First time on the field, hit a homerun
Wash your hands, don't tell no one
Better check yourself
Cause the best part of you, the part kept to self
Will never forget how it felt
Look at how well you dealt with the guilt now

[chorus] x2

You gotta secret, but everybody does
And the whole damn courtroom wanna be the judge
You don't wanna be distracted
And take our minds off our own malpractice
Everybody talk about their past
Like today's mistake is gonna be the last
We wanna see behind your mask
Like we ain't got our own backyard to trash
Well this one here, drink and drive
And that one there, she Tony's wife
Broken promises, deadbeat dads
Overdoses, and one night stands
Let's all make a mess
And try to project some kind of perfection
And let me sing you a song
Cause I ain't the first thing you ever did wrong

    Lyric CorrectionButcher the lyrics much?

    *All your stories are STAINS
    *WE ALL wanna be distracted
    *Well this one drink and drive, and that one there, CHEATS ON HIS WIFE

    This is SUCH a good song, I can't believe there aren't any comments.
