A Thousand Words

We stumble in a tangled web,
decaying friendships almost dead
And hide behind a mask of lies
We twist and turn and we avoid,
all hope of salvage now devoid
I see the truth inside your eyes
So take all this noise into your brain
and send it back again
I’ll bear the cost, shed my skin, call
you up and then…
I’ll say the words out loud

[chorus:]
You could resurrect a thousand
words to deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the
reasons why I don’t need you
anymore

Time manipulates your heart,
preconceptions torn apart
Begin to doubt my state of mind
But I won’t go down on what I said
I won’t retract convictions read
I may perplex, but I’m not blind
So take all this noise into your brain
and send it back again
I’ll bear the cost, shed my skin, call
you up and then…
I’ll say the words out loud

[chorus ]

I’ll say the words out loud. I’ll say a
thousand words or more

Manipulation. Fabrication.
Conversation. Annihilation
I’ll say a thousand words or more
Damnation. Frustration. Elevation.
Procreation
I’ll say a thousand words or more

[repeat chorus]
