PANTS ON FIRE

PANTS ON FIRE2

PANTS ON FIRE
You made some dandy promises
And none of them came true.
Lining your successes up
Shows they all benefit you.
You are really good at painting
The kind stories that you tell
You slap a label of heaven
On a smoldering part of hell.

Not buying what you’re selling;
Take your sales pitch elsewhere.
Don’t bother with rebuttals
Because I just don’t care.
You’ve told enough lies so far
Every time you open your mouth
I know the graph of your honesty
Has headed directly south.

It’s really an education
To watch you manufacture facts
Out of each batch of con games
And your other dishonest acts.
When your nasty games turn sour
And your victims begin to cry
You put on your best lying face
And blame the other guy.

Not buying what you’re selling;
Take your sales pitch elsewhere.
Don’t bother with rebuttals
Because I just don’t care.
You’ve told enough lies so far
Every time you open your mouth
I know the graph of your honesty
Has headed directly south.

I totally understand it all.
You are getting what you want.
So, I’m fairly sure you will ignore
The messages and the taunts.
My only fervent hope is that
It will soon come to pass,
That you will be found out
And it bites you in the ass.

Not buying what you’re selling;
Take your sales pitch elsewhere.
Don’t bother with rebuttals
Because I just don’t care.
You’ve told enough lies so far
Every time you open your mouth
I know the graph of your honesty
Has headed directly south.
