Cover Up

Warning signs 
Posted plain but subtle 
I think about how I should have known
I laid it out 
No space for compromise 
One, the son, or three is out 

Don’t try to remember me, like it would be 
Something I’d expect someone less to do 
Don’t try to convince me, it’s empty 
‘Cause I’ve talked it up and down 
There’s nothing new (true) 

Empty clothes 
Strong ain’t silent or beautiful 
Reaching out to make things whole
Paper thin  
Simple math won’t bring it 
I know you’ve tried to have it all 

Don’t try to remember me, like it would be 
Something I’d expect someone less to do 
Don’t try to convince me, it’s empty 
‘Cause I’ve talked it up and down 
There’s nothing new 

There’s nothing new… 

There’s nothing new… 

Don’t try to remember me, like it would be 
Something I’d expect someone less to do 
Don’t try to convince me, it’s empty 
‘Cause I’ve talked it up and down 
There’s nothing true 

Don’t try to remember me, like it would be 
Something I’d expect someone less to do 
Don’t try to convince me, it’s empty 
‘Cause I’ve talked it up and down 
There’s nothing new new
