Taxidermy - White Lies

Hang me up on your wall above the cold fire
Keep your promises
Keep your promises
Hang me up on your wall you're such a cold liar
Do what your father says
What your father says
I still remember your voice it turns my blood cold
The kids are fast asleep
Keep them fast asleep
You soul still haunts these walls
Like Taxidermy

There's no kiss of life so baby don't pretend
With your heart in your throat and a gun to your head
You can burn the money in the fireplace
You keep on telling what life's to the little kids
I think it's time they knew just what it means to live
You can burn your parents in the fireplace

I saw you run from the cold out of my arms
Your mother cried for years
She cried for years
I saw you run through the cold put ice in my heart
Now tell me all your fears
I'll be your greatest fear
You couldn't cut the smile from my face
Cause we're so proud today
We're so proud today
Our eyes will haunt these walls
Like Taxidermy

There's no kiss of life so baby don't pretend
With your heart in your throat and a gun to your head
You can burn the money in the fireplace
You keep on telling what life's to the little kids
I think it's time they knew just what it means to live
Now burn your parents in the fireplace
