'A Secret is a Lie' incepted on acoustic.

Written, recorded, mixed, mastered Thursday 11/27/14 as part of the 21 day songwriting exercise. 5 mics in one take, no edits.


Don't tell a soul about it
Don't listen to the voice inside your head
Can't understand, can't understand the message
These things you tell yourself are so misled

Don't trust a single thought that you're thinking
Live inside the construct that you've made
It's beautiful, beautiful but tragic
Best risk getting out than over stay

This is why a secret is a lie

The judgement here is never too surprising
It mystifies the way the story plays
My practice keeps the little hairs from rising
And to decide if it's accepting ways

The contradiction leads me to confusion
A wall is hard to climb and hard to break
My laughter hides a deeper kind of question
Another game of hostile give and take


from The 21 Day Myth, released December 6, 2014
