Beneath All My Lies


Love, you'll see in my eyes
beneath all my lies
when i would show my back
hiding tears blue and black
wrist dripping
red is slipping
through the sleeve
and i quietly leave
i fall and break
in your arms i fake
my cries and pain
saying i won't change
and bury my love
in a coffin so tough
you see the anger
like its forever
but even when she is dead
she said
one truth she hid
when you'll open my lids
My Love, you'll see in my eyes
beneath all my lies..
