Necessary Lies (Disguise)

from by Brett Ryan Stewart

/

lyrics

on the first of the darkest of all my days,

the winter was gone but the sky still grey,

the robins did not sing



and you, the closest of all, you stood by my side

and fought back the flames to put out the fire,

before it burnt me out



lines of necessary lies

they keep you in disguise

they keep you in disguise



run, tomorrow’s the day of the marathon

everyone’s watching you can’t go on

they just wanna see you fall



this it’s always the same story once again

you said that you’d quit but you can’t say when

so dream it all away



lines of necessary lies

they keep you in disguise

they keep you in disguise



`like a photo of a child with his young urgent smile

i am only holding still for awhile



lines of necessary lies

they keep you in disguise

they keep you in disguise



CP1: Forsake truth’s discrepancies. This secret will not wait to be exposed to this, the outcome of your melancholy indecisions.



CP2: Is this lying necessary? Can we not lose these disguises?
