Meet with me and tell me lies
We’ll escape the turning tide
Saying things are looking fine
As you put a little something in your coffee

This is not a noble cause
Months of work for faint applause
But I never thought it was
Anything but something to remind me
Of me

Don’t act scared
They’ll see it
And people aren’t forgiving as you think
It’s in every story that we tell
They can’t forgive themselves

Even if I’m sinking slow
With half my mind on tomorrow
I can make a moment grow
By sneaking up to pull it to the ground

You had smudges on your heart
Hoped that time would wash them off
Running fast so it beats hard
But all they did was blend into your body

Don’t act...
