Part II, "Bread Drawer Hiatus", in which our hero tries to ignore the signs.

lyrics

Dreamers see straight through the pain
I'll pull my head up and forget all my dignity
How could I be more wrong, 'cause with her I live happily
I'll write this silly song, then it's back to the pageantry

She's falling asleep and her lips are making words again
A cult, there's a colt, there's a cult, and it's inside of me
How dare you do me wrong, 'cause with you there's no reasoning
My eyes, they tell me lies, so I'm lighting up a flare to see

I'm living in a lie and I don't want it to die

I'm living in a lie and I don't want it to die
I am sure I've seen it all, but that's what makes it hard
It's better to escape so I'm pulling out the floss
I'm in a bread drawer and I'm taking a hiatus

Taking leave of my defenses has never been so quite easy
I won't leave until I'm done with all of these petty trances

Four more names brighten my screen
Using light that they steal from my darkened eyes
I'll meet my maker from this stress
If he hadn't left then I wouldn't be in such a mess

I'm living in a lie and I don't want it to die

I'm living in a lie and I don't want it to die
I am sure I've seen it all, but that's what makes it hard
It's better to escape so I'm pulling out the floss
I'm in a bread drawer and I'm taking a hiatus

Taking me far past the line I had never really wanted to cross
If I know me and I'm sure I don't, I'll never forgive this moment

I can't do it on my own
But all these hands that roam
I'd always detest it
Fried like a piece of toast
Toast (x6)

We'll walk this world hand-in-hand
I knew it was too good, just too good, too good to be true
Hopelessly combing the earth
Don't look back, that's the price for my safety
How could I start again, she's taken all I have to give
Drinking it all in like the feelings I can't feel again
If I look enough, I will find this portal that I seek
Take me to a life where I can love someone freely

I'm living in a lie and I don't want it to die

I'm living in a lie and I don't want it to die
I am sure I've seen it all, but that's what makes it hard
It's better to escape so I'm pulling out the floss
I'm in a bread drawer and I'm taking a hiatus
Living in a lie and I don't want it to die
I am sure I've seen it all, but that's what makes it hard
It's better to escape so I'm pulling out the floss
I'm in a bread drawer and I'm taking a hiatus

Dreamers see straight through the pain
I'll pull my head up and forget all my dignity
