harmony lies lyrics – cait brennan

the doctor’s cold, he’s been paroled, he’ll sculpt and mold you for the gold
origami folds and just a touch, a sleeper hold
you think you know where you belong?
he’s gonna show where you were wrong

he’s got big plans, he’s got strange hands, he’s gonna cut to your commands
all your little fans are gonna fall right where they stand
he’s gonna take away your man
and leave a stranger in the pan
(oh, i do like this bit…)

harmony lies inside your eyes
harmony lies inside of your mind
don’t you believe it for a minute
say your good-byes and dry your eyes
harmony lies inside, are you blind?
“don’t ever leave it undefended”

the nurse is so severe, she smells the fear and calls you “dear” and worse
one bony hand upon your shoulder and another on your purse
says he neglected to rehe*rs*
(i heard her ordering a he*rs*)

the secretary, quite contrary, wants to phone your next of kin
(precautionary—don’t you dare be throwin’ caution to the wind!)
that’s your eleventh deadly sin
they knuckle down and roll you in
(b*tterfingers!)

harmony lies inside your eyes
harmony lies inside of your mind
don’t you believe it for a minute
say your good-byes and dry your eyes
harmony lies inside, are you blind?
“don’t ever leave it undefended”

she was a fool to come here
(she’s gonna rue what’s done here—st*tched up like yesterday’s clothes)
but what the h*ll would you do? if this had happened to you?
false hope’s still hope, i suppose

the operation’s a sensation, it’s a qualified success
a celebration, revelation, it’s enough to fool the rest!
(methinks the lady doth protest!)
enjoy your life of second best

harmony lies inside your eyes
harmony lies inside of your mind
don’t you believe it for a minute
so say your good-byes and dry your eyes
harmony dies inside, is it time?
