The science of lying is based on good timing
and being able to imagine every truth
so every truth is pictured on billboards and i’ll make sure
it’s the same white on every single tooth.
Telling me i’m not enough, that’s what you consist of,
if you can’t blend in you can’t improve.
But i need directions, a summary of the section telling me
where improvement leads to.
I’m pretty on the left side, i lie awake at night,
this flicker has invaded my brain
and i can’t rest and i can’t sleep, i drown in rivers ankle deep
until we finally look the same.

I got to work! on that smirk!
i got to run to keep up.
So slow me down, hear from that sound
that my voice is being dubbed
and let me loose because what i do
i do best on my own
and what i’ll be, what i’ll need is in me and me alone.

Thanks for the blindfold, keeps my face from getting cold
and i will hold on to my sash
when it starts again, when they try to be my friends
by telling me i’ll need to grow up fast
and the worlds spins around a pole with a grin dressed in golden robes
disguising every wound and lie
and i am stuck in starstruck mode, my pickup lines have all been told
and i won’t ask for her alibi.

I will not work! on that smirk!
i will not run to keep up.
I slow down, hear from that sound
that my voice is being dubbed
and i break loose because what i do i do best on my own
and what i’ll be, what i’ll need is in me and me alone.

I am advised to break the ice wheter in good or bad times,
whether rich or poor, whatever you do.
i was told to twist my hair, put it slowly behind my ear
and keep a low profile but a pretty front view.
But I will pick my nose, i got a role that i chose
which is schizophrenic and beautiful
and i will be a changeling whatever the starlet sings


I will not work! on that smirk!
i will not run to keep up.
I slow down, hear from that sound
that my voice is being dubbed
and i break loose because what i do i do best on my own
and what i’ll be, what i’ll need is in me and me alone.

and it’s the only thing i can stay true to.

I
