lyrics

if you could see me now
you would hide your face
and walk on by
you wont see me cry
the perfect ending is a quick goodbye

when you were lying before me
when your lips were saying something
i was not there, i wasn't listening
i had one thing on my
dirty mind

i barely even know your name

i'm a hypocritiacal whore
reluctant to settle old scores
with an ever decreasing mind
the over indulgent kind

when you were lying before me
when your lips were saying something
i was not there, i wasn't listening
i had one thing on my
dirty mind

i barely even know your name

your silence, my ego
your silent lips upon this
your silence, my ego
your lips upon this
