Текст песни (слова) The Offspring - Half-Truism

Half-Truism

One is for envy
 And one just for spite
 The cuts in my heart
 They show in your eyes
 Don’t make it better
 The twisting knife
 Turns all by itself
 On to someone else

 Your self-liberation
 Will leave this behind
 Beyond slings and arrows
 That rain on our minds
 You’ll make it better
 Shake it off
 It never mattered anyway

 If we don’t make it alive
 Well it’s a hell of a good day to die
 All our light that shines strong
 Only lasts for so long

 And it’s ashes to ashes again
 Should we even try to pretend?
 All our light that shines strong
 Only lasts for so long

 The banner you’re waving
 Is burning and red
 It’s blocking the sunlight
 That shines overhead
 You against the world
 Diamonds and pearls
 Voices inside you churn
 Watch the city burn

 Your own liberation
 Will leave them behind
 All the slings and arrows
 That rain on your mind
 Don’t make it better
 Break it cause
 It never mattered anyway

 If we don’t make it alive
 Well it’s a hell of a good day to die
 All our light that shines strong
 Only lasts for so long

 And it’s ashes to ashes again
 Should we even try to pretend?
 All our light that shines strong
 Only lasts for so long

 I
 Won't
 Calm
 Down

 The banner you're waving
 Is burning and red
 You against the world
 Diamonds and pearls
 It never mattered
 Mattered
 Mattered anyway

 If we don’t make it alive
 Well it’s a hell of a good day to die
 All our light that shines strong
 Only lasts for so long

 And it’s ashes to ashes again
 Should we even try to pretend?
 All our light that shines strong
 Only lasts for so long

 All our light that shines strong
 Only lasts for so long
