The Growlers – Decoy Face lyrics
Darley had her own views
Downloaded through hesitation
Eyebrows like a mad clown
Causing too much salivation

Even while I’m talking
I can see her eyes departing
She wears a decoy face while her mind slips away

Everyone doing their best
Yes I care impressions
This is better yeah it’s true
'Cause I don’t want to hear their real confessions

So many voyeurs hoping for a good show
Scrappers and lawyers waiting for a stumble
Sharp claws cradling the bubble
Wearing their decoy face while their mind walks away

Everyone doing their best
Yes I care impressions
This is better yeah it’s true
'Cause I don’t want to hear their real confessions

Better not to eat up
All the things you wish were true
Though they love you I think you should know
You really are alone

The truth of solitude

Thought I hated gambling now every days a deck of cards
Losings got me terrified and winnings what they’re calling art
I wear my decoy face as my mind walks away

Everyone doing their best
Yes I care impressions
This is better yeah it’s true
'Cause I don’t want to hear their real confessions

Better not to eat up
All the things you wish were true
Though they love you I think you should know
You really are alone

    Other than the intro sounding exactly like Nick Cave's 'Red Right Hand,' I love this song because it's so honest. It has this really grunge/vulgar sound to it, but this fits so well with what the lyrics describe. I think the general message of it is basically no one really gives a shit these days, as they're all doing their best "yes I care impressions," while their minds walk away. And in this way, we all "really are alone," surrounded by decoy faces, so put your best one on:P
