I've got no politics, no influential friend or two
I've got ideas, but it's nothing I picked up at school
I might be running, but I'm never running back to you


And here's a letter from the real world, I don't expect you'll reply
And anything you're gonna tell me, it's just another lie


I had to wait so long that weeks and months that passed me by
You've got no power and my situation don't apply
You ask me how I am, I lie and say I'm doing fine


And with your sugar-sweetend alibi, there was a truth I never knew
And all the attitude you gave me, it's coming back to you


String of lies, it's always compromise with you
String of lies, you know there's nothing better to do
String of lies, it's been a string of lies with you


And here's a letter from the real world, I don't expect you'll reply
And anything you're gonna tell me, it's just another lie


String of lies, we always compromise for you
String of lies, you know there's nothing better to do
String of lies, it's been a string of lies with you
String of lies, we always compromise for you


And here's a letter from the real world
