You can see yourself in the sign river
Tossing your hand
If no one's there
Then why do you care?
Though I let you think there was no witness to
All of your crimes
I knew what you worn
The climate declines

[Chorus]
I'm living a lie,
You're living it too
Cause I live it with you
I'm living a lie, a lie can't tell
So wait for the crack in the shell

Know that there's a... I've been avoiding yes
Just past his prime
Building his cage, a bar at a time
For every hope I'm as a cold shoulder
Waiting to turn
People to blame
We're just 2 birds

[Chorus]
I'm living a lie,
You're living it too
Cause I live it with you
I'm living a lie, a lie can't tell
So wait for the crack in the shell

But girl... around, do the time on your ground
Is the shakiest leaf on the tree
Creating for you a song or two
Or now and I'll admit all achieves
Now there's too many cooks
But you like how it looks
When they're bowing and calling it bothers
But the powers that were invested in her
And now any means taken, lost

[Chorus]
I'm living a lie,
You're living it too
Cause I live it with you
I'm living a lie, a lie can tell
So wait for the crack in the shell
Yeah wait for the crack in the shell
