lyrics

someday soon my bones will turn to dust
the iron in my bloodstream turned to rust
i don't believe it's as bad as it sounds
keep it close, and give what we have found

once i was a savage in the field
a primitive true nature was revealed
that vanity meant nothing in the wild
where what you say is more important than the style

these things I can't abide
we will not live a lie

dress it in the most convincing rouge
and say it but it doesn't make it true
a temporary thing upon the earth
the work we did will show what we were worth
the work we did will show what we were worth

these things I can't abide
we will
not live
a
lie
