"Cleverly Disguised" as written by Jason Boesel, Stephen Michael Runion, Elizabeth Anne Berg, Alexander Greenwald and James B Valentine....
Buried alive, "Body of Christ" they cried
I was just cleverly disguised
Burn me alive, avert your Pagan eyes

Oh, even the good ones lie
Yes, even the good ones, they lie
Yes, even the good ones they waste your time
Sometimes

And it's a lonesome feeling, one you can't deny
This lonesome living's all we can provide
So if you need me, is something you decide
It's quite a feeling once you realize fake is what you like

You caught my eye, but it was not our time
You were dumb and I was blind
You caught my eye, but it was not our time
No, it wasn't worth a try

'Cause even the good ones, they lie
Yes, even the good ones, they waste your time
Sometimes, sometimes...

And it's a lonesome feeling, one you can't deny
This lonesome city's poised to rob you blind
So if you need me, is something you decide
It's quite a feeling once you realize fake is what you like

And it's a lonesome feeling, one you can't deny
This lonesome living's all we can provide
So if you need me, is something you decide
It's quite a feeling once you realize fake is what you like

This lonesome feeling, one you can't deny
This lonesome city's poised to rob you blind
So cut your losses, let's say our goodbyes
It's quite a feeling once you realize fake is what you like

    General CommentIt's strange how this song sounds like it could have been a Strokes song. It sounds like no other songs on the album - it's a Strokes song.

    Having said that, I love it. The whole album is really great!
