lyrics

LOST FAITH

Lost Faith and Toxic Emotion
Moved in just two doors down
You swore you wouldn't visit
But then the dead of night came crawling around
La, la, La, la, la, La, la, La

Mirror, mirror flatly accuses you of an ugly crime
Fess up no makeup or trendy ruses you’ve lived beyond your prime

Poor Loser and Why-yes Mam
Drug and riot past four AM
Swore thirty was something they would never see
But in through the dead of night it creeped
La, la, La, la, la, La, la, La

Mirror, mirror flatly accuses you done an ugly crime
Fess up make no excuses you've lived beyond your prime

Faint Hope and her sister Sally Despair
Get to bed early with candles and prayers
Where there's smoke they pray there's fire
But in the dead of night their flame expires
La, la, La, la, la, La, la, La

Fall, fall thud on the floor
Had a family but not no more
Got nobody close to call
No neighbor, no lover, no friends at all
No matter the doctor, the magic, the spin
Ain't no denying you committed a sin

Mirror, mirror flatly charges you with the worst crime of all
Forget a trail by jury you’re guilty of being fat and bald

Insomnia and you in your darkest hour
Got no stomach for a face gone sour
New York minutes that barely crawl
And like an axe the dead of night falls
La, la, La, la, la, La, la, La
Like an axe the dead of night falls
La, la, La, la, la, La, la, La
Just like an axe the dead of night falls
