overlord – secrets in pairs lyrics

secrets in pairs
it seems as though
my whispers have echoes
since everyone knows
everything i ever said to anyone in confidence
admittedly this is of little consequence

what does he know?
your outrage rings hollow
in retrospect or did you mean
i’ll never do the awful things they did to me
yes unless i get the opportunity

this was before i was aware
you keep your secrets in pairs
this was before i cared
you keep your secrets in pairs

it’s how you buy intimacy
you barter with your hidden horde
of others’ fragile admissions as currency
you’re rolling in transm-ted former loyalties

this was before i learned
you keep your secrets in pairs
this was before i’d heard
you keep my secrets in pairs

it comes and goes
the methods are borrowed
you can dispense with pleasantries
don’t worry all your confessions are safe with me
clearly i am inured to asymmetry

somewhere in there i learned
you keep my secrets in pairs
somewhere in there you’d dared
to keep my secrets in pairs
