You continue to lie
Again and again
No point in trying
Where to begin?

Over and over
Time passes by
The same story gets told
Can’t help wonder why.

You grin and you smile
You look away
You look for an out
You look for a way.

No one believes you
Save your excuses
Nobody wins
Everyone loses.

Step back, step away
There’s too much at stake
Stop laughing, pretending
With that smirk on your face.

It’s over, I’m done
Get out, close the door
I’ve heard this same story
I’ve heard it before.

We’ve run out of time
I’ve had enough
Please pack your packs
Take all of your stuff.

Over and over
Over again
Everyone loses
Nobody wins.
