lyrics

If I was a king or a movie star
And I’d done all the things that I’ve done thus far
There’s no doubt I’d be looked on differently

But I’ve got away with more because
There were no cameras everywhere I was
For some reason we’re all desperate for a fall

‘Cause these days there’s always, always, always something more
It seems that nothing’s sacred
And I just want to go back to before
When we all could fake it
That might seem worse
But sometimes too much knowledge hurts
Let he who’s without sin cast the first stone

And if we wanna run from someone who
Perhaps we used to love and we thought we knew
Well these days there’s no way to disappear

It seems we’re just a little obsessed
with digging up the past and causing unrest
why can’t we just let sleeping dogs lie?

‘Cause these days there’s always, always, always something more
It seems that nothing’s sacred
And I just want to go back to before
When we all could fake it
That might seem worse
But sometimes too much knowledge hurts
Let he who’s without sin cast the first stone

We were the ones who wanted the way
To instantly archive all that we say
But it comes back to bite you you’re turned away and off guard
And you thought it was far
Enough in the past to walk from
But how wrong that was, yeah how wrong

These days it’s always, always,
always something more
It seems nothing’s sacred
And I just want to go back to before
When we all could fake it
That might seem worse
But sometimes too much knowledge hurts
Yeah Let he who’s without sin cast the first stone
