My fakest smiles are the best

Because I've practiced them the most

Let's add more sorrow to this piece

So you can label it modern art

Would it be controversial to talk about God?

Or is the topic too mum to utter? You shudder

*But the truth is he is the reason I breathe

The only reason I stand on my own two feet

I tried carrying my own self around

That's when my pride got buried into the ground

*My eyes glisten from all the polish

Every day, never fails, reapply to survive

Super sweet, is the tongue, are my words

For golden ears to hear the golden truth

But only a fool would laugh at the joke

I have told a million times, repeat, repeat

*But the truth is he is the reason I breathe

The only reason I stand on my own two feet

I tried carrying my own self around

That's when my pride got buried into the ground

*I chew on my foot that is caked with lies

Surprises lurk around every corner, I try

To seem all right is to seem miserable

Every day my cheap existence sits on the clearance rack

My brain for answers that play like a famous record

Breaking into the vault that holds the real me inside

*But the truth is he is the reason I breathe

The only reason I stand on my own two feet

I tried carrying my own self around

That's when my pride got buried into the ground
