journal of lies lyrics – school for the dead

i don’t believe in ghosts but i’m scared of them
and in this way i contradict myself
(no i don’t)
it’s hard to be smart when you’re so, so dumb
so much, so much of the time.

i don’t believe you’ll like what i have to say
and so i’ll just keep it to myself
(no i won’t)
it’s hard to be nice when you’re so, so sad
and it’s so sad that you’d even try

it’s a journal of lies when it lies on the table
a journal of lies if just anyone’s able
to read what you wrote
it’s a book full of quotes
that you just made up
that’s a journal of lies that you’ve got there

i don’t believe a thing that they shout at me
i don’t believe a single word they yell
(yes i do)
my spirit’s been busted by people i trusted
and now they can all go to h*ll

it’s a journal of lies when it lies on the table
a journal of lies if just anyone’s able
to read what you wrote
it’s a book full of stuff
that you just made up
that’s a journal of lies that you’ve got there
