the humble are liars.

surround ourselves with flattery
justification's a real skill
we all start off with ambition
but morals never paid the bills
heroes swap their heaven pass
for adoration and cheap thrills
we all want our 30 seconds fame
so compromise until

arrogance inevitably
reveals the basic soul disease
hold us up and strip us bare
and leave us fallen to our knees
arrogance betrays the fool
so lay me down with modesty
surrender thoughts I'd rather hold
and let the lie wash over me

if a little lie is artistic license
i might as well be picasso
painting stories for placation
sure beats expression though
planting seeds for excuses
and leave the truth in the undergrowth
idle minds and tortured times
best to just go with the flow

Chorus

dirty sheets and cool ideas
the air is thick with modesty
heart to hearts-whisky fuelled
I've had enough of modesty
arrogance berates the fools
lay me down with modesty
surrender thoughts I'd rather hold
and let the lie wash over me
“I smoke. If this bothers anyone, I suggest you look around at the world in which we live and shut your f*ckin' mouth.” RIP

arrogance inevitably
reveals the basic soul disease

and leave us fallen to our knees---best four lines so far. amazing. i love it.
arrogance betrays the fool
so lay me down with modesty---good.

and let the lie wash over me

i might as well be picasso---good.
painting stories for placation
sure beats expression though
planting seeds for excuses
and leave the truth in the undergrowth---great follow up with the metaphor before. this was great. awesome way of developing your thoughts. nicely done.
idle minds and tortured times
best to just go with the flow

-last two lines are great too. tie the verse up nicely.. good.
