​Saving Face

This song is by Carry Your Ghost and appears on the album Weight Of The World (2012).

All my life
I have held these standards on what's right for me
And yet I've found as I've got older
That can mean so many things
Believe me, I am not perfect
I'm no closer to the truth
But it is safe to say
There is nothing worse than hiding from who you are

All my life I've held these standards
On what's right for me
And yet I've found as I've got older
That can mean so many things
Believe me, I'm not perfect
I'm no closer to the truth
But it is safe to say
That there is nothing worse than hiding from who you are

For the sake of conformity cleverly disguised as security
But there is nothing secure about living your life
If you are constantly competing with the next guy
For a chance at a better life if you can sell your soul at a higher price

If there's one thing that I know
It's that money talks and bullshit walks

So count your gold as you lose control
There's no sense in saving face anymore

I'm leaving with high hopes that I'll figure the rest out, and if I don't
You can say 'I told you so', but all the money in the world won't save your soul

I'm leaving with high hopes
All the money in the world won't save your soul

It's been a while since you've seen the simple things
And it'll be even longer till you see me again

I see it in your eyes
This is not the life that you want for me
Despite your negativity
I'm leaving with high hopes
