lyrics

They say that classical is good for the brain
and heavy metal is slightly inane.
They say sincerity is hip this year
and sarcastic cynicism ain’t coming back, I fear,
because honesty sells records the most.
And, I should get some sandals, because I’m from the West Coast.
But, every single thing I ever said was a lie.
And all along every word to every song
that I sang wrong, for right or for wrong, was a lie.

They say that cynicism is good for the brain –
also for pleasure, progress and pain.
They say sincerity is hip this year
and sarcastic cynicism ain’t coming back, I fear.
But, there must be more to this life than herds.
There must be more to truth than words.
But every single thing I ever said was a lie.
And all along every word to every song
that I sang wrong, for right or for wrong, was a lie.
