There's no lie greater than "forever"
There's no lie greater than "everything's fine"
Both defined in equal measure
'Cause whispering would cross the line.

The scabs of smoke breathe something new
Curious whiffs of a different me
The dismal drinks and lustful fumes
Encompass me entirely

It'll breed if it's taken in my stead
No aid is worth what it would shred
So leave me in my den again
I swear I'm fine, my dearest friend
I'll sort this mess out in my head
With sleepless nights trapped in my bed
But don't take that as alarm for dread
It's how I prove that I'm not dead
Or maybe I'll crack or maybe I'll fall
But it's not like anyone cares at all
So leave me be, I'll say it again:
It's better for you if I'm not there.

Forever's young so try to forget.
Everything's fine, is that what you're looking for?
No secret's out, no secrets kept.
Well, there may be one. Or maybe more.
