-{ Picture Perfect Family Lies - Dedicated to Jorge }-

See us standing there
Concrete streets
Smallest of houses
Lawns trying to be green
We stand, frozen in time
A single glimpse into the past
Framed by a single camera flash
We smile, lying through our teeth
Everything looking better than reality
And no one would ever know
Unless you lived in my shoes
With parents who regret being so--
A father whom could be nothing further,
A mother whom wants to be something other,
And me--a son who doesn't understand
Life should be better, it should be worth it
But not if you live my life
And see this image of us, which makes me sick
Because I know what the camera didn't capture
I know what went on behind closed doors
I know all about the family lies
