Lyrics

Quiet Lies

The quiet lies display the truth
More vividly than tongues let loose
A mirror tells no lie
I’m holding on so tightly that
My knuckles white and tightly stretched
The tension is all mine

Reality’s so lonely it forgets me
Mistakes left behind me beside me

I long to leave the falsity behind me
I’m tired of the quiet lies; forgiveness needs a best friend
And I’m trying so hard to make it right
And I’m trying so hard to escape these quiet lies

When everyone is living lies
The number doesn’t make it right
Why do I fall in line
My pursuit is nothing less
Than the newest rage of ill passions
The greed, the pride, the tempting

The power, the plenty, destroys me
The wanting, and wanting, and wanting

And I’m trying so hard to make it right
And I’m trying so hard to escape these quiet lies
