lyrics

It's so easy to paint the truth you're telling when you sell the frame to fit.
Speaking only in abstractions, I never say what's really on my mind
when it matters most.

Under the gun, I will wait to queue
my laments
until you are six feet buried under the bus.
I am an accessory, aiding and abetting in the murder of your character.

Please understand that all my thoughts worth half a damn will always be a sin too late
And if a resolution's marked by preservation,
I guess my mouth moves too goddamn quickly for my pace.

But a sword undrawn is just dead weight,
and I can't reconcile the shame.
In between the ivory, I am inevitably between my mind and the words that I eat.

Oh, it's so hard to be a fuck's worth of the person I imagine myself to be.

Please understand that all my thoughts worth half a damn
will always be two steps ahead of me.

I'm finding it hard to be worth more
than the words I eat each day.
