Michael Penn — All That That Implies lyrics

Filibust and hesitate
You say I procrastinate
And that my heart beat's second rate
To one you'll recognize

I know that you are drawn to it
So all I am is counterfeit
It pulls you so you must submit
Like ant to honeydew

What once I took as remedies
Are only chalk hypotheses
'Tis the season for a breeze
To blow them all away

To add insult to injury
The sum you gets means I agree
So you can call that empathy
And find someone else to blame

You say it's truth and nothing but
Baby, I sympathize

But all that that implies are lies
Surprise, surprise
All that that implies are lies
Surprise, surprise
They're lies, surprise, surprise

Take this heart and claim a stake
Shove it through so I can't wake
The c*** will crow, the day will break
But I won't be around

And it may be the kindest cut
Word comes in edgewise

But all that that implies are lies
Surprise, surprise
All that that implies are lies
Surprise, surprise
They're lies, surprise, surprise
