White Lies, Yellow Teeth
Lyrics:

You went out for a walk
I'm sure you went a long ways
Sorting things out in our heads
We'll forget in a few days

In the place before you're made
They give you all these options
Like if you've got wings
Or have you got feelings
Or can you breathe under water

He chose lifting ten times his weight
And natural body armor
On the day his mother gave
He came out as an insect

People talk in soda pop
They talk it quite a lot
The opinions that I don't give
Are the opinions I don't got

White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed
White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed

White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed
White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed
White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed
White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed
White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed

White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed

White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed
White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed
White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed

It's all so plain, it's all a plan
It's all so thin of everyone
The sky doesn't ever end
The air just gets much thinner

I knew a man who went on and on
About how he knew a man
Who knew a man, who knew a man, who knew him once
You can keep diggin' down and down inside
Even turn around or find in hell
You're diggin' up again

Some hippie told me free your pets
So I let them all go free
It didn't take no time at all
For them to run on back to me

White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed
White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed
White lies fall off my yellow teeth
I didn't convince you, but I believed
