lyrics

You know those sayings meant to break your fall?
It's better to love and to lose and so on, so on
I think I've heard them too many times
‘Cause they don't change nothin'
They don't ease my mind
So shut your mouth and open your eyes

They're just dirty lies
Your mother tells you to make the pain subside
Dirty lies
You hold on to like a lover in the night
Dirty lies
You can call it wisdom
I call it denial
So keep, just keep your dirty lies

My pocket’s empty but you see my heart’s full
Well I need something my five fingers can hold
And maybe time will heal all my wounds
But I’m sick of waiting to see if it’s true
So try your best I will not be fooled

They're just dirty lies
Your mother tells you to make the pain subside
Dirty lies
You hold on to like a lover in the night
Dirty lies
You can call it wisdom
I call it denial
So keep, just keep your dirty lies

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Dirty lies
Your mother tells you to make the pain subside
Dirty lies
You hold on to like a lover in the night
Dirty lies
You can call it wisdom
I call it denial
So keep, just keep, just keep your dirty lies
