Hunter eyes
I'm lost and hardly noticed, slight goodbye
I want to rip your lips off in my mouth
Even in my greatest moment, doubt
The line between deceit and right now

Simple math,
It's how our bodies even got here
Sinful math,
The ebb and flow to multiply

What if I was wrong
And no one cared to mention?
What if it was true
And all we thought was right was wrong?

Simple math,
The truth cannot be fractioned
Either way

I imply to mitigate, the guilt we could align
A perfectly constructed alibi
To hush the violent guilt that eats and never dies
In actual blame, they called me once the dark divide

Simple math,
It's why our bodies even lay here
Sinful math,
The truth cannot be fashioned

What if you were crazy,
Would we have to listen then?
What if we've been trying
To get to where we've always been?

What if I was wrong,
And started trying to fix it?
What if you believed me?
Everything is brilliant

What if I've been trying
To get to where I've always been?
What if we've been trying
To get to where we've always been?

Simple math,
Believe me, all is brilliant

What if we've been trying
To kill the noise and silence?
What if I was wrong
And you had never questioned it?

What if it was true,
That all we thought was right was wrong?

Simple math,
The truth cannot be fractioned
I imply, I've got to get it back then
