about

When you feel shame.

lyrics

Everybody stop pretending
That fat is a sin
And food a reward

Everybody lending
To the bank of lies
The lies are yr Lord

Everybody always sending
The message is stark
The meaning is lost

Everybody depending
On dreams in the dark
The solipsist cost

I was never pretending
It was ever good times
I just had to put a mask on
To read between the lines

Everybody stop pretending
That money is a measure
Of worth

I ain't offended yet
But I ain't the one
Diggin in the dirt

Everybody brass knuckles
Got yr hackles up
Back against the wall

It pays to be fucking paranoid
Pretending the worst
Expecting the fall

I was never pretending
It was ever good times
I just had to put a mask on
To read between the lines
