How did I not know that your words meant less than dust And were born of an idea that you had heard but having Nothing in common with truth or with trust Everything that you swore so quickly snatched away And me left without a heart and nothing to hold onto But still so much to feel While my house burned down you didn't bring water but gasoline And all I ever hated rose right up and bled through you Now I can only regret every moment that we spent Every second we shared only makes matters worse For I have seen the truth behind the sparkle in your eyes I finally see the ugly behind your pretty disguise Now I can't stop wishing that you had never looked my way And you have the nerve to ask me why Why the fuck did you tell me about magic and then Show me the strings Why did you whisper that your heart was in my teeth When that was the first place that you kicked me as I lay helpless on the ground Yes all that once was has turned to the blackest of hate Instead of wishing you the best I will be rooting for you to fall As I learn the most painful lesson of all That a lie is a lie is a lie is a lie I don't give a fuck how pretty it's disguise
