Chiodos - The Lover And The Liar Lyrics




[Whispers if you play backwards:]
How does it feel to know that you've taken someone's smile

We're on a search to find the feeling for which we all die
It appeared the answer to the problem
And a reason to smile

Two lost hearts and one caught in the middle
They came together and the other fell apart
It appeared the answer to the problem
I have no reason to smile

The connection... eyes meeting
Lips touching... screaming "Sweet sayonara"
And the other gracious sounds of Claudio
Sweat, spit, and tears exchanged alike
Mistakes made and forgiveness but the eyes still met
And the lover still loved and the liar still lied

Then came the downfall to one's heaven stuck in a world where nothing is beautiful
The nail was in the coffin...it hadn't been buried yet
Nothing but an open casket for him to kneel and weep
(A lover and liar the pain finally stopping for him to try and take his own life)
(And the blood of a body that was once so pure)

It's come together, it's time to change what the script reads
There's no such thing as happy endings
This masterpiece is finally ending slowly
Microphone psychiatry...good-bye for good

It's come together, it's time to change what the script reads
There's no such thing as happy endings
This masterpiece is finally ending slowly
Microphone psychiatry...

Two lost hearts and one caught in the middle
They came together and the other fell apart
It appeared the answer to the problem
I have no reason to smile

Cravings fulfilled hate on oneself...good-bye for good.

  14. v.... ....

    I love the first 2:45 of the song. Too bad the mood changed.
    Not my cup of tea, but I still love Chiodos. :)

  15. T.... J....

    best post on here

  16. B.... D....

    not "just like" but it is close, MCR doesn't incorporate the piano as much and of course the voices are different but equally emotional. Whenever I listen to old Chiodos I do think to myself it's like a twisted version of old MCR from an alternate universe.

  17. r.... ....

    I love this band as much as the next guy. But does anyone else think that this album sounds just like My Chemical Romance lol

  18. N.... ....

    Just a small detail, the band was named "The Chiodos Bros." when this song was made.

  19. V.... L....

    How does it feel when you know you've taken someone's smile...

  20. o.... ....

    @TheRealStaken best thing about the song<3

  21. r.... ....

    i love how this band can't figure out what genre of music it belongs to,
    or who its lead singer is :3

  22. A.... S....

    lol this song describes my life-cheers to being cheated on!

  23. M.... M....

    @IFeelWeak you my friend, have said what i've been trying to say for awhile.

  24. J.... W....

    @IFeelWeak
    Sooo much agreement between me and you dude. Derrick was a very unique drummer with chiodos. he has something alot of drummers don't, and what it is is his control in dynamics. part of that would probably be that he played in the OC drumline in san antonio in highschool. Derrick without a doubt has alot better technique then alot of drummers, and can play with dynamic difference. Tanner kinda just kinda wails on his set. granted they both have talent, but i like derrick better.

  25. h.... ....

    @AcousticHustler
    i guess angsty screamo shit comes off as a lot more offensive than i intended
    i just dont like many of these post-hardcore screamo type bands, where most of the vocalists cant actually sing - but this song in particular just seems really.. off. It's mixed really poorly, i guess.

  26. M.... ....

    forealzz! the drums just make it so catchy

  27. G.... S....

    @TheHyancith I have actually heard of them. I'll check them out! Thank you!

  28. G.... S....

    I recently started listening to Chiodos. I really like this song and The Words "Best Friend" Have been Redefined. So far I really like them. The singer's voice is interesting to me :3

  29. N.... K....

    @wassup599 this is really old stuff

  30. h.... ....

    did this band ever sound good? this is pretty shitty
    mind you im not really into the angsty screamo shit, this just seems particularly bad

  31. w.... ....

    I started listening to the chiodos a few months ago, and i have to say, i only listen to their old stuff because thats where they actually sound good. Here, they sound like they have some issues.

  32. m.... ....

    Dude da fuck thank you only one theats not fucking reversed who cares fuhk

  33. C.... ....

    Love it

  34. T.... ....

    @penguin27pie a new album with a new vocaist that's all. I've heard some songs from the new album which is called alluminaudio. It's really good so far and it doesn't diverge to much from the Chiodos with Craig.

  35. d.... ....

    "how does it feel to know that you've taken someones smile" is the very begining backwords

  36. K.... M....

    i thought chiodos broke up, but itunes says they have an album coming out on oct 15.. are they still together?? :))

  37. f.... ....

    1:09 is where it climaxes to awsomeness

  38. L.... P....

    does the ending of this song remind anyone else of the halo 3 music? haha :p
    chiodos <3

  39. s.... ....

    hmm i think the beginning said how does it feel to know youve takn someones smile

  40. J.... J....

    The ending of this song is the ending of Baby, You Wouldn't Last a Minute on the Creek backwards...Hmm...(;

  41. a.... ....

    o. O for some reason i liked it

  42. c.... g....

    @Psychosocia123 thanks :)
