Hypocritical Kiss

Album: Blunderbuss (2012)
  • My temper got the best of me
    And when I said that I mean I know every single thing that I said was true
    And I know that you're mad at me
    But if you're thinking like that, I think you'll see that you're mad at you too

    And I know the feeling's strong
    Strong enough to forget about all that I've been through
    And it sounds obscene, but
    Loud words never bothered me like they do to you

    You're the boy that talks but says nothin'
    A big game to the ones that you think will believe you, yeah
    But you don't know how to read
    The look on my face when it says, "yeah I've read that book too"

    And who the hell's impressed by you?
    I want names of the people that we know that are fallin' for this
    You would sell your own mother out
    And then betray your dead brother with another hypocritical kiss

    Oh, yeah Writer/s: JACK WHITE
