Hide from View

We dance in our heads to the beat of our hearts
Running wild through the shit that tears us apart
The people all stagger with quantities of drink
Throw chips to the seagulls and don’t even blink

The litter is scattered and scrapes on the wind
The lights they all flicker and hide that we’ve sinned
Drink beer from the bottle let’s toast to fuck all
We live in a lie that makes bricks in a wall

We both are pretending with faces that mask
And be who we’re not with sewn lips that don’t ask
We walk in the gutter in shoes that don’t fit
And smile at the world like a bold hypocrite
