Lies on the Phone

And so we lie to ourselves on the phone
pretend
let’s make it better than it is
pretend.
it appears you’re fine
(I’m fine)
and if you are
(fine)
so am I.

Let’s play pretend.

And so we lie to each other on the phone.
I’m fine
I’m fine
alright
yeah, fine.
But the lies we spread
over the bloody mess of ourselves
doesn’t help a bit
too gauze thin
holding nothing
hiding nothing.

We know each other to well.
We know it’s just pretend.

In the end
we both bleed lonely
and knowing
