When I'm lying in your bed
Play the motions through my head
You know that I'm thinking, I'm thinking
And I have reasons to believe
That I'm not the only one you spend this time with,
But I'll stay...

You say you're weak, but you wont let me down, you wont let me down
You lied through your teeth
And you smile in your sleep, you smile in your sleep

And when we met, you said we were the same
You know that were different, were different
And all those times you promised me
That everything would work out in the end,
You were gravely mistaken

You say you're weak, but you wont let me down, you wont let me down
You lied through your teeth
And you smile in your sleep, you smile in your sleep

You lied
You lied
You lied
You lied
You lied through your teeth
You won't let me down
You lied, I deserve better than this

I dream of steel
Maroon and warm
Your end (your end)
Your end (your end)
You gasp for air
I'll see this through
I'll see through you
Your pale (your pale)
Your pale (your pale)
Your pale blue eyes

When your lying in your bed
Your eulogy's been read
Your know that it's fitting
'Cause you lied

You say you're weak, but you wont let me down, you wont let me down
You lied through your teeth
And you smile in your sleep, you smile in your sleep

You smile
You smile
You smile
You smile
I deserve better than this.

    i think its about a girlfriend/boyfriend cheating on you, but they always tell you they love you. and they think all there lieing (you lie threw your teeth) is working (smile in your sleep)
    idk... i guess the sort of accurate?

    I agree with you Past, but when he says that "you smile in your sleep" he knew she was a dirty liar who dared sleep without any problems. It was likely she had cheated way more times in order to feel nothing when she did it to him. He probably kills her in bed (with something obviously made of steel) which also ends up being her deathbed, and curses her out, saying shes a liar. Because they are the last words being said to her on her deathbed, its also her eulogy. So shes done with.

    this song is amazing. and of course its not true but still i pretty sure any guy would feel this way if he loved a girl so much and found out she was cheating and lying to him.
