Paper


Who are we as people if we stay up on our shelves,
And never fight the battles that we are so fairly dealt?

You said I'm a lost cause if I'm losing and a cheat if I win,
Your voice reminds me of paper cause your lies are getting thin.

You never asked for anything but to see my faded scars.
I never thought that you would judge me,
Never thought that I'd come last.

You said I'm a lost cause if I'm losing and a cheat if I win,
Your voice reminds me of paper cause your lies are getting thin. 

If I stop just for a second, I can hear the tables turn.
Watching you try to listen is like watching water burn.

You said I'm a lost cause if I'm losing and a cheat if I win,
Your voice reminds me of paper cause your lies are getting thin.
                                          lies are getting thin.
                                          lies are getting thin.
