Hay, hay, hay, hay
Hay, hay, hay..

True friends lie underneath,
These witty words I don't believe.
I can't believe a damn thing they say, anymore (anymore)
.
Lie! Liar you'll pay for your sins!
Now! Liar, I know all the places you've been
!

Forgiveness, this taste all but poisons my mouth,
I scream, but nothing,
Nothing will come out.
(You've gone too far)


So tell me how does it feel, how does it feel to be like you?
I think your mouth should be quiet, 'cause it never tells the truth.
So tell me, so tell me why,
Why does it have to be this way? Why can't things ever change?

Falling over (falling over), and over again,
Oh, why does it have to be this way? (why does it have to be this way?)
From the place I was, to the place I am, to the place I want to be,
For the mountains I've been climbing over,
And under and over (and over)
.
From the place that I was to the man I've become,
I'll be there to see the tower you'll fall from.
No, this kingdom isn't quite what it may seem,
You're an illusion, you'll never be king!

So tell me how does it feel, how does it feel to be like you?
I think your mouth should be quiet, 'cause it never tells the truth.
So tell me, so tell me why,
Why does it have to be this way? Why can't things ever change?

Sometimes things are better left unsaid,
But this time you'll get what you give!
(True friends lie underneath, these witty words
I don't believe, I can't believe a damn thing they say, anymore!)

"Come down (come down), come down from your tower"
"Come down (come down), come down from your tower"
(I can't believe a damn thing they say, anymore!)


I know that for all my life, for all my strength
There is one above who can judge me.
All I am is yours, all I am is yours, all I am is yours!
I am yours!

    This song means a lot to me, believe it or not. Sleeping With Sirens is one of the most amazing bands I personally have ever had the pleasure of hearing. Unlike most music these days, their songs all have heartfelt meanings behind them. This song is about going through a hard time. You find out who your true friends are and who will jump at the chance to stab you in the back. Also, it makes me think of the boy who cried wolf. On the 'Li-Li-Liar. Liar you'll pay for your sins. (repeat) So tell me, how does it feel? How does it feel to be like you? I think your mouth should be quiet, 'cause it never tells the truth' It makes me think of the boy who cried wolf because the person that Kellin is talking about repeatedly lied and was being a backstabber, so now it is EXTREMELY hard to believe anything that they say. This is the meaning to a thirteen year old girl.

    I listen to this song when i felel betrayed
    So tell me how does it feel,
    How does it feel to be like you?
    I think your mouth should be quiet
    Cause it never tells the truth
    So tell me, so tell me why,
    Why does it have to be this way?
    Why can't things ever change?
