lyrics

What does honesty mean to you?
To me, it means tearing out your heart
Like spilling cards on a table, sprawled out faced up.
Evidently so, you made it clear this year,
You replaced confidence with fear.

What does honesty mean to you?
To me, it means tearing out your heart
Like spilling cards on a table, sprawled out faced up.
I begin to itch, scratch, and peel.
To permanently seal the deal,
I mark and forget who I was from the start.

Place my bones with steady hands
Through the mud, dry me out with sand.
Let a puppet dance as me instead;
Hang me on a sturdy line.
Well kept manners are hard to find these days.
Well kept manners are hard to find these days.

Nothing meaningful to say;
Ended with something uncontrollably slain.
This is the price I pay;
There's nothing more from me to say.
I'll get out of the way,
And leave another mother childless far beyond the bay.

Place my bones with steady hands
Through the mud, dry me out with sand.
Let a puppet dance as me instead;
Hang me on a sturdy line.
Well kept manners are hard to find these days.
Well kept manners are hard to find these days.

Careful what you wish for, your dreams may come true.
For all you know, your nightmares are dreams that you once knew.
Unconsciously forgotten as something bright as new,
It's darker now, haunting the bed in your room.

Place my bones with steady hands
Through the mud, dry me out with sand.
Let a puppet dance as me instead;
Hang me on a sturdy line.
Well kept manners are hard to find these days.
Well kept manners are hard to find these days.

Why is it so hard to find? Why can't we read between the lines?
Well kept manners are hard to find these days.
Well kept manners are hard to find these days.
