Lyrics

Running Thin

Written By: Jon Carr

If I told you how i feel
would you disbelieve the real
with the words you hear me sing
in hopes that you the song will bring
what are we doing to ourselves?
i don't know but there's no one else
my memory is running thin
on how these types of things begin
first it goes from fake to real
after that you lose the feel
what are we doing to ourselves?
i don't know but there's no one else

i've just got to let you know
there's no one else

Lying Man

Written By: J.G. Roy

this is the fresh country air
between the money and the shit-it’s there
and when we have our way
the dirt, all it does is gives way
to the “I told you so’s” that we say....hey

so why won’t you listen
we’re not failed transmissions
with all the times that we’ve tried
you have yet to reply...hey

its not the neighbors telling stories
and its not the praising and the glory
it’s the shadows that hang on the walls
an illusion that makes the rooms small
but it’s on your knees where the ceilings, they become tall...hey

so why won’t you listen
we’re not failed transmissions
with all the times that we’ve tried
you have yet to reply...hey
