lyrics

If beauty is truth why can't I look it in the face?
It was a noble pursuit but there's no thrill left in this chase
If beauty is truth, we are ugly

I don't know what the hell is happening
Could it be that anyone who ever said a single thing
Of any value, any time, has never known what's happening?
Like me, like you

They say "the best things in life a free"
You buy in to that conspiracy
Everything costs at any quality
They lied to you, they lied to me
They say "you cannot keep a good man down"
It's worse than simply not profound
They'll crush you deep into the ground
And speak those words to make a sound

If beauty is truth why can't I look it in the face?
It was a noble pursuit but there's no thrill left in this chase
(I don't know what the hell is happening)

We don’t try to sound like any of them. ... more
