Track Name: Honest Liar
Tell me something good
'cause something doesn't sit
The more that you make up
the less the pieces fit

Your story's cheap
you sweep them off the floor,
saying no returns, please,
when they don't work no more

Chorus:
yeah, aren't you bored?
yeah, aren't you tired?
I can't take it anymore,
hey, hey, hey,
you honest liar.

Such a bad taste
left in your mouth
Were those names bitter
when you spit them out?

Get out, fortune lady,
Get out, weatherman,
Get out, house of cards,
don't you understand?

Chorus
