Hey there, honest people
Stop living a lie today
Hey there, honest people
Stop erasing society

Like frozen air
Close off the lungs
Like crows who stare
Bite off your tongue
Unknown to most
Not near enough
We hurt the most
The ones we love

Hey there, honest people
Stop living a lie today
Hey there, honest people
Stop leading the wrong way

On rust stained fingers
On blood stained regrets
We will hold on 'til our memories forget
Our vanities
Our selfish needs
Oh please God, let me breathe
Please God, honestly

We try so hard
But work so slow
It falls apart
But now we know
Like evil smiles
We're double edged
Kind awhile
Then we poison

Hey there, honest people
Stop living a lie today
Hey there, honest people
Stop acting like zombies

On rust stained fingers
On blood stained regrets
We will hold on 'til our memories forget
Our vanities
Our selfish needs
Oh please God, let me breathe
Please God, honestly

You never know
What people are
Until they show
Their fallen stars
Like lone wolves
Destined to be
All alone
That's honesty

Please God
Honestly

I don't you can see, I only use my superpowers for good...

Honesty
I love the tag on the end. This one has that 6o's activist style ('The times they are a changing' - 'Eve of Destruction') Great refrain - I do want to sing Hey Mr. Tamborine Man but that's the risk one takes with certain phases or words that have fixed themselves into the popular culture. Still a great piece skillfully penned - as always.
