These baby secrets have grown into children / through dirty adolescence and now into manhood / I locked the basement door and broke off the skeleton key / but it made no difference still they travel with me even though I killed them they haunt me and they help me / remember the lies in the shadows, the practiced charades / my hands are an axe chopping at the roots / of the only family tree that could ever bear fruit / to cripple you to make sure that you never reproduce / another heart of lies or house of haunted rooms

The arrow is thrown into your back nothing has ever been / so distant and weak / dreaded words whispered under her breath "your just like your father" / your ocean is a drop of water

Tightly woven wire mesh beneath the broken salesman as he's rolling down the conveyer belt / the product is almost ready to be shipped out the door / out into the world to make a living selling plastic faces to everyone who needs em / to forget the lies in the shadows, the practiced charades / the enemy will make sure the ties on straight / it's always best to make an impression of wealth / no matter how much hatred and debt is boiling beneath the surface / "I love you" spills like vomit from her lips

The arrow is thrown into your back / nothing has ever been so distant and weak / the dreaded words whispered under her breath "you're just like your father" / your ocean is a drop of water / I locked the basement doors and broke of the skeleton key / forget the lies in the shadows, don't forget me

Secrets Of A Salesman Lyrics

Rocky Votolato – Secrets Of A Salesman Lyrics

These baby secrets have grown into children / through dirty adolescence and now into manhood / I locked the basement door and broke off the skeleton key / but it made no difference still they travel with me even though I killed them they haunt me and they help me / remember the lies in the shadows, the practiced charades / my hands are an axe chopping at the roots / of the only family tree that could ever bear fruit / to cripple you to make sure that you never reproduce / another heart of lies or house of haunted rooms

The arrow is thrown into your back nothing has ever been / so distant and weak / dreaded words whispered under her breath "your just like your father" / your ocean is a drop of water

Tightly woven wire mesh beneath the broken salesman as he's rolling down the conveyer belt / the product is almost ready to be shipped out the door / out into the world to make a living selling plastic faces to everyone who needs em / to forget the lies in the shadows, the practiced charades / the enemy will make sure the ties on straight / it's always best to make an impression of wealth / no matter how much hatred and debt is boiling beneath the surface / "I love you" spills like vomit from her lips

The arrow is thrown into your back / nothing has ever been so distant and weak / the dreaded words whispered under her breath "you're just like your father" / your ocean is a drop of water / I locked the basement doors and broke of the skeleton key / forget the lies in the shadows, don't forget me
