F### your lies and
F### your false pretense
Who’s to say this
Justifies the ends
I shouldn’t write
About dark things as this
But when you taunt me
I just get so pissed

Strung along
All alone
And I feel so stoned
Cheated lives
Broken wives
Beneath the star-crossed skies

Chaotic feelings
Manifest as words
How can I sort
Through all this bulls### heard
F### it all, I
Just want to go home
I reached for you
But I was here alone

Time is gone
Bloody pawn
My God, it’s gone so wrong
Once again
We all lost
Cheated at what cost?

Dirtied burdens
Bore by time alone
I hear the ringing
Can’t pick up the phone
Screaming loudly
In the silent night
I hate to tell you
Looks like I was right

If you leave
Could I breathe?
Will you grant reprieve?
Help me please
Save my soul
With hearts black as coal

F### your lies and
F### your false pretense
F### the things that
You’ll say in the end
F### this song and
F### the things I do
F### emotion
Finally, f### you

F### your lies and
F### your false pretense
F### the soul that
Justifies these ends
F### the words and
F### the music too
F### emotion
Finally, f### you
F### emotion
Finally, f### you
Finally, f### you
Finally, f### you
Finally, f### you

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
