​We Lie Half The Time

This song is by Hey Mercedes and appears on the album Unorchestrated (2005).

We drink ourselves to sleep
The company we keep intoxicates us beyond belief
We lay backwards in bed and pray
For a peace to chase our revelry at least
A world of words unfurls and every one's such work
And every night's a hollow light

We lie half the time
We lie half the time

The ghosts of Cuba Road relocate to my place
Apartment south of grace
They keep the pace of cars and waltz around the windows
And fall in front of all these bars
And I'm just feeling spent
What with all the rent and (not to mention) exorcism

We lie half the time
We lie half the time

Who let our spirit come down?
Calm down
Who let my spirit come down?
Calm down
Who let our spirit come down?
Calm down
Calm down

So where's the boy in me who hates the man I am?
That cares if no one calls
And where's the harmony that rattles in the teeth?
That clicks off one, two, three

We lie half the time
We lie half the time
