lyrics

Hung out to dry
I don't know why
I'm just getting by
Everyone thinks it's a lie
It is a lie
It's fine
I'm not fine
I'm not lying
It's fine

Trust in your gut
We'll get out of this rut
I don't wanna hear "but"
Stow it shut
This is what
It comes down to
When the director says "cut"

It's a rap
This is a trap
Everyone clap
When the cue says
"Applause"
This is the death of laws
I don't know how you justify
Everything that was

Step on the crack
Break your mother's back
Where are we headed to
When the skies turn black?

I'll be gone
You'll have deified me, right or wrong
My old pal, my sole preacher
For better or worse your only teacher

Do you have dreams
Of the past
When the movies
Matched the cast?
Before the flood
It's fading fast
The components just weren't
Built to last

The joke's on me
You're just three
And you can already see
More accurately
The beauty
We all crave to be

Hung out to dry
I don't know why
I'm just getting by
Everyone thinks it's a lie
It is a lie
It's fine
I'm not fine
I'm not lying
It's fine

Trust in your gut
We'll get out of this rut
I don't wanna hear "but"
Stow it shut
This is what
It comes down to
When the director says "cut"

It's a rap
This is a trap
Everyone clap
When the cue says
"Applause"
This is the death of laws
I don't know how you justify
Everything that was

Step on the crack
Break your mother's back
Where are we headed to
When the skies turn black?

I'll be gone
You'll have deified me, right or wrong
My old pal, my sole preacher
For better or worse your only teacher
