Külip – “Second Person”

I can lie  to myself, I can lie to everyone else
But if I lie to you, I’ve got no one left

I bought a liter with a thirty-dollar bill
I drank it down and felt a little ill
I told myself that the pain would go away
But it was waiting the very next day

I can trick myself, I can trick everybody else
I’d trick you too but you’ve already left

I took a quarter and scratched it on the street
I wrote your name for everyone to see
Someone bought it with a thousand-dollar check
Four thousand quarters, and me a nervous wreck

I can ask myself, I can ask someone else
But I can’t ask you since you’ve already left
