First Lie

Orphans

First Lie
Chris Tune / Toms Lyrics

I heard you singing from the roof tops
saw you swinging in the trees
tripping on a cough drop
dealing your disease
I watched you watching from the washroom
heard you tumble down my stairs
passed out under a mushroom
Aunt Alice she don’t care
bout nothing that don’t matter
no matter what you think you saw
all your friends they will scatter
empty the bladder of the law
cuz flattery gets you no where, baby
and no where ain’t too far

now I don’t want your number
no I don’t wanna know your name
I just woke from a slumber
and nothing round here looks the same
I’m just trying to get back to the morning
retracing the years gone by
I just wish you were who you said you were
that day you told me your first lie
I should’ve said goodbye

(please remember now..)
there’s a tiny bit of truth
in every single thing we learn
and we only ask for proof
when it’s none of our concern
before I even realize
I’m under your command
the damage has been minimized
by the healing of your hands
(gimme that healing baby)

now I don’t want your number
you see i dont even know your name
I just woke from a slumber
and something round here seems strange
I’m just trying to get back to the morning
whipe away all those tears that’s gone by
I just wish you were who you said you were
that day you told me your first lie
(I laid down and died)

I love the sound of slamming doors
the feel of concrete floors
down on all fours
is where we fight our wars
you’ve been missing in the action, baby
you’ve been riding on the pine
like snapping an elastic
to try to re-train your mind
wrap it all in up in plastic
and take it to other side
but be sure to pay the taxman
cuz there are no free rides

now I don’t want your number
no I cant remember your name
you see i’ve been gone all summer
and everything round here has changed
I’m just trying to get back to my morning
forget all of those years gone by
i just wish you were who you said you were
that day you told me your first lie
(i never understood why)
