and if so 03:03
maybe i love a lie maybe i heard it 'till i thought it was true i don't know why i want to be broken into like the berlin wall i want to know, do you mean it when you sing your songs like that and if so, how do you hide it when you aren't singing? i want to be your faerie princess i tell myself i know better dress myself up like women do i like the way it makes me feel, and i wonder about that i want to know why my heart was made for harshest winter and where it goes, when it's summer and the lovely weather drags me underground and i can't get out and i'm so alone, and i'm so alone i want to know why we as a species set ourselves up with inhuman standards and scenes and labels 'till all we have left in common is we don't feel like we fit i want to know, is it better to be dumb and play along? and if so, why even normal people don't seem happy i want to know how your god's gonna work it all out in heaven and where you go, when you get there, and you still don't fit in

convenient 03:59
why don't you cry about it, always works, i will do anything to fix lie about it, biggest perk, i am walking benefit of doubt you want so badly for me to feel the same way you do now & i know, i know what it is to love to be in someone's presence & later hate their guts for it but i know what i am to you don't think i can't see right through your kindness too convenient is my middle name so take me out to dinner i will be touched by the gesture & forget if i had a problem, do you ever feel like you are in another country speaking french & every now & then you think of something that's in english, but it doesn't last for long so yeah, let's play another couple hands & talk about the hazards of drinking but i won't actually do any, i don't want to be off my balance with you 'cause i know what our friendship means i know just how much help a willing ride can be i already know what you're gonna say, so you don't have to tell me, see convenient is my middle name so tell me what has happened in your own words, in your own words, i wanna know what you think this means to me & all it doesn't mean to you, when you say hey what happened happened & the past is in the past even five minutes ago, hey ain't that why it's called five minutes ago when you said baby would you keep quiet for just five minutes so i can turn it around so i am the victim keep quiet for just five minutes so i can make it so we always were at war with east asia & always were allied with eurasia & your nature, baby, makes it easier for me but i know what i am to you don't think i can't see right through your kindness too convenient is my middle name i will keep quiet so you can have the satisfaction knowing that this has ended politely so you can go home & fake admit to your mommy she was right about me, see i know what i am to you don't think i can't see right through your kindness too i know everything, i know everything, that i do for you convenient is my middle name

silence ends 03:39
what is this attraction to the edge of violence? what is this bruised obsession all tied up in romance? you could call me flattered, but it's more that I'm intrigued by the intensity you could call my name or you could let me see the notes you keep on me i lie awake in bed and let the soreness build up in my back what are you ruled by now? where does it all fit in when the story ends? what are you offering? where does it all fit in when the silence ends? now in these blues and greens cast by the sunlight i must consider my sanity in mornings to come you could call me simple, but it's more that I know too well how things can disappear you could call my name or you could let me know you aren't going anywhere i lie awake in bed and let the discontent keep me there what are you ruled by now? where does it all fit in when the story ends? what are you offering? where does it all fit in when the silence ends? i lie awake in bed and i am smart enough to know what i need what are you ruled by now? where does it all fit in when the story ends? what are you offering? where does it all fit in when the silence ends?
