  • Oh, hush, my dear, it's been a difficult year
    And terrors don't prey on innocent victims
    Trust me, darlin', trust me, darlin'

    It's been a loveless year
    I'm a man of three fears
    Integrity, faith, and crocodile tears and
    Trust me, darlin', trust me, darlin'

    So look me in the eyes, tell me what you see
    Perfect paradise, tearin' at the seams
    I wish I could escape it, no, I don't wanna fake it
    Wish I could erase it, make your heart believe

    But I'm a bad liar, bad liar
    Now you know, now you know
    I'm a bad liar, bad liar
    And now you know, you're free to go

    Did all my dreams never mean one thing?
    Does happiness lie in a diamond ring?
    Oh, I've been askin' for
    Oh, I've been askin' for problems, problems, problems
    I wage my war, on the worlds inside
    I take my gun to the enemy's side
    Oh, I've been askin' for
    Oh, I've been askin' for problems, problems, problems

    So look me in the eyes, tell me what you see
    Perfect paradise, tearin' at the seams
    I wish I could escape it, no, I don't wanna fake it
    Wish I could erase it, make your heart believe

    But I'm a bad liar, bad liar
    Now you know, now you know
    I'm a bad liar, bad liar
    Now you know, you're free to go

    I can't breathe, I can't be
    I can't be what you want me to be
    Believe me this one time
    Believe me

    I'm a bad liar, bad liar
    Now you know, now you know
    I'm a bad liar, bad liar
    Now you know, you're free to go

    Please believe me, please believe me Writer/s: Aja Volkman, Benjamin Arthur McKee, Daniel Coulter Reynolds, Daniel James Platzman, Daniel Wayne Sermon, Jorgen Michael Odegard
