They said everything out of her mouth is a lie
Don't believe the words, the tears that she cries
It's all just a ruse, a rotten old fake
She's just trying to get attention for her own sake
Nothing ever happened to make her feel sad
Certainly nothing to say why she's mad
We all have trouble with parents, it's true
Trouble with one, more so if it's two
There's nothing wrong with the situation she had
If anything, she should be really glad 
A lovely house in which to retreat
Three squares a day, more than enough to eat

Don't bother looking at the pain in her eyes
That's just another part of those gargantuan lies
