Your shirt is stained when you wear your heart on your sleeve.
So you wash it off and pretend that it was never there.
Your face in the mirror doesn't give a reflection.
So you paint one on, it's the art of imitation.
It tickles you to death, knowing you can play the game so well.
But you can't ignore, don't know who you are, so what.

Your sugar coated, guns are loaded,
Afraid of tasting yourself.
So you keep lying, never trying,
Say you're somebody else

The bitterness inside your heart,
It shows through in your eyes,
And you can't win in the end.

You take your big guns, loading them with your fatal charm.
The fact is, you love me, nothing can kill me now.
I've learned the power of deceit, the power of the sweet, is so true.
Now I'm a confection to taste good is all I must do.

Your sugar coated, guns are loaded,
Afraid of tasting yourself.
So you keep lying, never trying,
Say you're somebody else

Its too easy to get to where you,
Take it, dig it, every day
And you can't win in the end.
The bitterness inside your heart,
It shows through in your eyes,
And you can't win in the end.

    General CommentThis song sounds an awful lot like The Perfect Crime, but not as good I think.

    General Commentthis was actually the demo for perfect crime. It was released on a little mini record that came with a music magazine.
