lyrics

throw the body in the lake
and take a chance that no one finds out

your life is stories that you fake
and rake like leaves behind you

so row the boat into the bay
and say you've lost your compass

your life is pieces that you play
and maybe they will trump us

blow the kiss you never felt
and belt your wife for smiling

love is lying by yourself
alone awake and crying

honey
even if you knew
what lies, what lies behind that honeymoon

sew the ribbon round your throat
and coat your mouth with honey

your life is books you never wrote
and tote only for money

dig a hole into the ground
and pound the earth in outrage

your life is treasures that you've found
and drowned in lakes that you've made

show the soul you never had
a fad that will not save you

your life is hiding all the bad
and sad smiles that break you

honey if you took back all the promises and rings
and little things and when he sings would you still know
what lies behind that honeymoon

movies that you make and you hit stop and you hit play
and the scenes are day by day would you still know
what lies behind that honeymoon

comb through all facts to learn his words are rather heady
says he's ready to go steady would you still know
what lies behind that honeymoon

pies that you will bake when you are sittin in the kitchen
are you listenin to what your missing would you still know
what lies behind that honeymoon

be the first to crack when your new love must be measured
under pressure under pleasure would you still know
what lies behind that honeymoon

suckle on the lack of all the hugs you never got
and if you rot it's what you bought would you still know
what lies behind that honeymoon

dew lies on the haystack you were tied and you were tethered
like a feather in stormy weather would you still know
what lies behind that honeymoon

be the first to crack when your new love must be measured
under pressure under pleasure would you still know
what lies behind that honeymoon
