about

(favoring comfort over truth)

By S N Walsh

lyrics

Believe what you want, believe what you were taught
Pass it down like it's all written into stone
Believe what you need, believe what you think you see
And pass it on like it's your own

You've got your loving and your fighting up to speed
You've never known exactly what it is you need
You know that lying to yourself's your greatest skill
I tell you really truly absolu'ly

Winning the argument doesn't make you right
But it's all starting to crumble down deep inside
You talk in circles now, make it make sense somehow
Roadblocked in the cul-de-sac of pride

Your loving and your fighting's up to speed
You've never known exactly what it is you need
You know that lying to yourself's your greatest skill
I tell you really truly absolu'ly

Makes you feel so wise to think that everybody else is wrong
But learning from mistakes is what will truly make you strong

(instrumental chorus)

You used to know it all, then the real world called
Now you're always just a mirror image of the truth
Perspective’s all you need to make your ego bleed
So let go of your willful youth

You've got your loving and your fighting up to speed
You've never known exactly what it is you need
You know that lying to yourself's your greatest skill
I tell you really truly absolu'ly
