lyrics

I remember finding out that Santa Clause was fake
And since that day I’ve nursed a broken heart
It’s not the fact that we’re all raised on lies that makes me angry
It’s the lies we’re told that set us all apart
It’s the lies we’re told that set us all apart

We’re often putting too much faith into the sky
When it rains we’ll only end up wet
I watched the weather, there’s a good chance there will be lightning
We should probably go inside before we’re dead

I’ve always known that one and one make two
The thing I’ve never figured out is how to lie to you

I sacrificed my childhood for the sake of being smart
Now I only speak in metaphor
Summer is the time we need to pick shapes out of clouds
Because in winter there’s just way too many more

We’re often putting too much faith into the sky
When it rains we’ll only end up wet
I watched the weather, there’s a good chance there will be lightning
We should probably go inside before we’re dead

I’ve always know that two and two make four
The thing I’ve never figured out is how to ask for more
I’ve always known that three and three make six
The thing I’ve never figured out is how to get my fix of you
And I’ve always know that four and four make eight
But by the time I figure that one out it’s always way too late
