Withheld Information

If I don’t believe it, it must not be true
I tell them just what they want to hear
I know that secrets don’t make friends
So all this time I ‘withheld information’

There should be truth, there should be lies

If I close my eyes it won’t be there
If we fake it enough it’ll never come
There’s a pill for it all, always ‘the next-best alternative’
And then there’s honesty, how can we be honest anymore?

There should be truth, there should be lies

All you have to do is just sound like you mean it
To make it feel like it should

There should be truth, there should be lies
