Would you believe me if I couldn't lie?

Paradise still a memory, grains of warm sand tickle forgiving toes,

If I told you I lied would you still believe me?

The flower stands once again appear naked,

Against a canvas of nothing, our colors won't shine,

My soggy pancakes won't ruin mornings,

And Sundays become just another day, freedom is terrifying...

If I told you I didn't lie, would you still believe me?
