Second Best (demo) Submit Correct Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Everything's a lie
We're all gonna die
Before we say goodbye, let's attack

[Verse 2]
I admit it's bleak
But I give it a week
Until our friends the meek give it back

[Chorus]
Is it true? Well it's true enough I guess
It's good to see you in this wilderness

[Verse 3]
What's left of you that's real
A mutated ideal
With limited appeal, I suggest

[Verse 4]
There's a sale on body parts
You're filling up your cart
Is that still your own heart?
Meet that chest.

[Chorus]
Is it you? Well it's you enough I guess
You're a statue of Los Angeles
Is it true, yes it's true enough I guess
Sometimes it's better to be second best
Second best (x7)

[Verse 5]
Perhaps it's just as well
That I still look like hell
At least the world can tell us apart

[Chorus]
Is it true? Yes it's true enough I guess
Morning often finds me unimpressed
Is it true, yes it's true enough I guess
Sometimes it's better to be second best
Second best (x15)
