lyrics

The little lies we weave so honestly,
have more to say than words spoke true.
And in our lifetime, we’ll make history.
With Sappy Songs of, and, for you

I could write you the grandest story ever told.
But what's the point lies are the cheapest shit we've ever sold.

I have come undone

Could you could you please call my name out clearly through the cream,
because I can't recall the script to this misplaced unsightly scene.
How do I clear the space that's grown so far that I can't see?
If I can't catch up to you, no don't you come back for me.

Are my mistakes so hard to justify?
It seems so innocent to me
With words and actions meant to gratify
Would I be what you'd have me be

You're hearts so light you walk across the wake of all my sin
What kind of frame in mind have you resolved to put me in.


Lost in atrophy

Could you could you please call my name out clearly through the cream,
because I can't recall the script to this misplaced unsightly scene.
How do I clear the space that's grown so far that I can't see?
If I can't catch up to you, no don't you come back for me.
