All Is Vanity

  • Haven't shaved for days
    Keeps the appearance of delay
    The luxury of one more dye
    Pretend humility, the ugly lie
    I would prefer no choice
    One bread, one milk, one food, that's all
    I'm confused, I only want one truth
    I really don't mind being lied to

    It's not "What's wrong?"
    It's "What's right?"
    Makes you feel like I'm talking a foreign language sometimes
    It's not "What's wrong?"
    It's "What's right?"
    It's the facts of life sunshine
    It's the facts of life sunshine
    It's the facts of life my sunshine Writer/s: JAMES BRADFIELD, NICHOLAS JONES, RICHARD EDWARDS, SEAN MOORE
