  1. Joke Becomes a Lie

From the album Streams of Consciousness

Lyrics

Are you always right?
Do you feel that you that you have to win the fight?
Must it only be your way?

Once you were so true
But now you're telling me something new
And it's breaking my heart

Does laughter have to come from someone's expense?
Creating wounds that we must defend
Sticks and stones will hurt you
But so do words sometimes

Are you so cool?
When you always end up blaming
Some poor fool who never had a chance

Does laughter have to come from someone's expense?
Creating wounds that we must defend
Sticks and stones will hurt you
But so do words sometimes

When a Jokes Becomes a Lie
You will hurt someone deep inside
When a Jokes Becomes a Lie

When a Jokes Becomes a Lie
Will you ever see the reasons why
When a Jokes Becomes a Lie

Much of what we say
Is often taken the wrong way
With a foot in the mouth

You're still my friend
Our relationship will never have to end
Just watch the sarcasm
