lyrics

Stupid got what stupid gets,
a bayonet right through the chest.
Please cut around my feelings, another scar.
When i sat down you got up,
went to bed you stayed up.
We ran out of things to fight about.

On that morning of the murder,
i got up for work, with silent tears,
the flame flickered out.
On that morning of the murder,
you were fast asleep.
I kissed your head, i whispered goodbye.

You've diseased yourself with somebody else.
(Lying eyes, liar)
You've diseased yourself and i'm helpless to help.
(Lying eyes, liar)

Stupid got what stupid gets,
the smell of wine and cigarettes.
You've been out all night again with that guy.
I see the way you look at him,
I fade away as you focus in.
God i miss that stare, those hungry eyes.

On that morning of the murder,
you slipped out to work,
without a kiss or wave to say goodbye.
On that morning of the murder,
i was somewhere else.
In my dreams i dreamt that you died.

Maybe we're too alike,
two people in one mind.
Hiding all our little lies behind our lying eyes.
Magnets meant forever,
but you pulled away i never.
Hiding all our little lies behind our lying eyes.

You've diseased yourself with somebody else
(Lying eyes, liar)
You've diseased yourself and i'm helpless to help.
(Lying eyes, liar)
You've diseased yourself and i'm falling apart.
I could give you the cure but you don't want me.
