lyrics

I’ll say I’m feeling fine
I’ve been known to lie
Been going through hell
Call it paradise
I lie to you all the time
I lie to myself too
Say whatever I need to get through


Would you believe me if I told you that my phone died
No, not this time
What if I said I was brought down by a landslide
Sitting in my Jeep listening to Fleetwood Mac parked out by the cliffside

Water rushed past
I reached for your call
It’s a wonder with the storm I had service at all
But I missed it by a second
Try to check it
Write a message
But then the car starts moving
And I forget to send it

I think my brain blocks most of the tumble
Cuz I just remember waking up in among the rubble
And sitting by myself in shock for a couple minutes
Cuz a moment prior, shit, I thought I was finished

Since the existential crisis I’ve been walking in a daze
Is it any wonder calling back slipped my brain?
What?
It hasn't rained in three weeks? I coulda sworn I saw it pour
Shit, guess you’ve heard this lie before



I’ll say I’m feeling fine
I’ve been known to lie
Been going through hell
Call it paradise
I lie to you all the time
I lie to myself too
Say whatever I need to get through


Would you believe me if I told you I was taking my meds? 
Working hard and doing everything the therapist says?
No? I wouldn’t believe it either
Fever dreams feature better theatre
Then Broadway in the Bleachers

You wouldn’t believe me if I told you
But aliens came down from space
Or maybe jumped through a portal
They told me the I would save the human race
But only if I stayed inside for 36 days straight

Wait
You’ve heard lie too?
Well just hold on a second cause this next one might be true
I got nothing to lose
Shit, I’ve told that one too?
I’ve lied so much, cant even tell me the truth

Proof is something
I loosely have
If by have you mean don't have at all
But I’ll claim I have it
Till somebody asks
When suddenly the facts come and break my fall

Lies burn my throat
Coat my tongue
With propaganda
Man I cant stand
Another year of this
Slander stranded vacuum

Passive tactics
Manic addicts
Get me all up in a panic
Think you’ve narrowed down the truth
You know nothing about it
It’s easier to pull the veil
Then expose myself a fake
So i’ll say everything alright
Till the next mistake

I’ll say I’m feeling fine
I’ve been known to lie
Been going through hell
Call it paradise
I lie to you all the time
I lie to myself too
Say whatever I need to get through
