Slip into my skin, into the spaces between my bones and flesh, what will you find in there?
A heart that beats for the sake of beating and nothing more,
lungs that breathe for the sake of breathing and nothing more-
I'm awake, but a part of me is comatose,
I'm thick-skinned, but a part of me bubbles under the surface always,
I lie to myself: saying that I can stand that I'm missing pieces.
Fall into her arms, all the curves and edges pressed against each other, what will you find there?
Two hearts, two mouths, one love-
she is my home,
but there's an ocean between us that she can't part-
a mountain range that she can't cross-
and distance that she can't walk-
and I placed them all there; I lie to her: saying that I can live without her.
Crash and burn, pulled back and forth what will you find there?
Split in two,
my head says to lie,
but my heart screams her name;
I lie to myself, thinking that I can get to heaven by cutting a part of myself away.
"I'm a Liar" from 1999
