Coat Of Lies

You varnish the truth

With another coat of lies

Thinking I wont notice what is real

Hidden behind your story

But after years of this

I know how you lie

And will no longer be sucked in

The stench of your lies

Is as strong as the whiskey on your breath

I know you’ve been drinking

And it breaks my heart again

If only you would see

The damage each drop creates

So go ahead and brush on another layer

And stain what relationship we have left

Somehow the truth will win in the end
