Cute Is What We Aim For – Lyrical Lies lyrics

An old man gave me a tip he said
"Don't waste your time with politics" he said
"Just chase skirts instead"
"Life is too short, and your almost dead" he said
"I met a woman once, I gave her my best shot"
"But never did I talk and talk and talk"
"If I had her back, I'd be as real as my age"
"I so don't blame them, I wouldn't do the same"
"But I can blame them, I'd Sing her this"

And you want to be dressed in poetry
But imagery doesn't fit
And you want resizing
But darling dear get a grip

And I think what I just wrote is going over my head
I'm stealing lines from myself
And what I said was never said
It's just a lyrical lie
Made up in my mind

And you want to be dressed in poetry
But imagery doesn't fit
And you want resizing
But darling dear get a grip

You're moving but not aware
You're drowsy without a care
Except keeping your whites behind your lids
And your lids are your best canvas
I can only imagine what your painting, what your painting
And your body on my mattress is proof
And your makeup on my pillow is proof
But do you think I am telling you the truth

It's just a lyrical lie
Made up in my mind

And you want to be dressed in poetry
But imagery doesn't fit
And you want resizing
But darling dear, get a grip

And you want to be dressed in poetry
But imagery doesn't fit
And you want resizing
But darling dear, get a grip

    A man gives advice to the other man saying "Don't get to involved with the real world and focus on love. Love is what matters." The he begins to tell the story about a woman he met and he let her slip away. Then he begins to say what he would tell her. "You want to be dressed in poetry, but imagery doesn't fit" means your beauty can't be put in words. "You want re-sizing, but darling dear get a grip" means don't change anything you are perfect the way you are. The man thinks he told the woman all these things when he really didn't, but he didn't know that. He then says the proof of her beauty is her. Her on the mattress and her make-up on his pillow, but do she think that's the truth?
