about

(rationalized dishonesty)

By S N Walsh

lyrics

If I could not cry to you, I fear what our lives would be
If I had to lie to you, it would be over between us
I'm learning to share with you

I've lost track of what was once inside my mind
I can't remember who I used to be
I'm lost somewhere in Auld Lang Syne
But Nostalgia just ain't what it used to be

If the truth hurts, then I'm protecting you this way
I'm the only one who knows what not to say

So maybe I'm finally beginning to deserve your hue
And that is because I'm learning to lie to you
Ahh... you don't want to know what's true
Ahh... I'm learning to lie to you

You'll never know the feelings that I've had inside
Don't even try to find out what I used to be
I must escape from Auld Lang Syne
'cos Nostalgia just ain't what it used to be

Please, please please, don't leave
When I'm just acquiring the skill to deceive

I'll never forget you; Well that much is true
And that is why I'm learning to lie to you
Ahh... I don't remember what is true
Ahh... I'm learning to lie to you

So I will not punish you for things that you've said to me
And I will not blame you, nor hurt you nor be cruel
And I will not lie to you; (I just lied again)

So I will not cry for you; it's no longer my fault
And I will not cry to you; I'm done with insulting
I'm learning to lie to you; I'm learning to lie to you

about

earth immigrant California

From 1979-1999, Pluto's eccentric orbit placed it closer to the sun than Neptune. Therefore, earth immigrant (b.1980, Zigian Air Fields, Neptune) indeed comes from the farthest planet in our system. I hate to think we Neptunians are so petty, but support for planetary demotion of Pluto was very high on the blue giant, and I can’t help but think it’s because we like being far out - the farthest! ... more
