This song was created for Game of Bands round 136 : "Minimalism II"

Lyrics:

Simple Layers

[chorus]
I find myself wishing this were as simple
As when we first met
But the layers of lies go deeper and deeper
Than those of hate and regret

[verse 1a]
I never intended for you to know
Never had planned for you to find out
Had always pretended in life, for show
but pray tell your thinking out loud

[Talking Break]
I'm amused
by the fact
that I can still surprise you

You're bemused
by this act
of revelation

[chorus]
I find myself wishing this were as simple
As when we first met
But the layers of lies go deeper and deeper
Than those of hate and regret

[verse 2a]
I never intended to keep this from you
But compassion is something that we lack
It feels like we're ending, or that we'll renew
our roles; if you could, would you take it back?

[chorus]
I find myself wishing this were as simple
As when we first met
But the layers of lies go deeper and deeper
Than those of hate and regret
[Exit]
