​Plastered Smile

This song is by HOLYCHILD and appears on the album The Shape Of Brat Pop To Come (2015).

I'm always far below
The underdog that shows
Hold me together this time

And when I'm broken through
Retreating far from you
Try to remember it's fine

On all the lightest days
I slip beneath the haze
Of tighter bodies than mine

And while my eyes are true
They're always far from new
Don't blame yourself, we'll blame the time

It's always up, up, up
It's always mine
Argue for whatever this time

And so we wash our skin
So clean but not within
Plaster on your smile this time

My fate is up to those
Dictating beauty flows
I'll hide away until the night

And in the darkness pure
Our senses won't be sure
Relying only on the trite

Just sick of all the pain
And Puritan-like shame
That follows me into the light

This doesn't need to be
We could just all break free
Salvation lies beyond the fight

It's always up, up, up
It's always mine
Argue for whatever this time

And so we wash our skin
So clean but not within
Plaster on your smile this time

We're diving into all you say you know
Tied together still alone, darling
Frustrated and I know it's getting old
Jealous of the young and gold toys

Please tell me you agree with what you see
Lies are sweetest when we're not free
I'll say that I'm never affected when
Guilt is shaking up my head

Let me go

It's always up, up, up
It's always mine
Argue for whatever this time
It's always up, up, up
It's always mine
Argue for whatever this time

And so we wash our skin
So clean but not within
Plaster on your smile this time
