Lyrics - Come Clean

Just say what's on your mind
Please save us our hard earned time
The lies are written clear on your face
My thoughts are on rewind
Should I take this as a sign
To run away
To hide away
Never see you again

Take me back
Take me back
Take me back when I was young

It's okay to be afraid
But don't let that get in the way
The lies are written clear on your face

Two years of empty love
And I had to fight for your warmth
I can't get them back no way
I'll start anew

When the sun
When the sun sets I fall right back into memories
Take me back
Take me back
Take me back when I was young

It's okay to be afraid
But don't let that get in the way
The lies are written clear on your face
To grow you must embrace the pain
And all will feel right in the end
The lies are written clear on your face

My mother taught me
How to remain clear
If we don't stop fighting
We'll melt away

It's okay to be afraid
But don't let that get in the way
The lies are written clear on your face
To grow you must embrace the pain
And all will feel right in the end
The lies are written clear on your face

I don't know why but I'm thinking of Linkin' Park hearing this.

I really love this song! Great production, classic rock/metal, great edgy vocals. This would be something if I heard on the radio, I would roll down the windows of my car and crank up the volume. I really enjoyed the electric guitar and there was a hint of keyboards in the background? But it was more like "the cars" style keyboards that augments the melody and the chords of the music. Really fine musicianship here

A nod do what I would call Prog rock, and I dig that. The vocalist has the chops for sure. The feel of the sound is not "old" to me, which is huge. Not clinging onto an old sounding genre, but making it modern and acceptable. There is no question this could be placed easily, so congrats on the recording. Excellent arrangement, inserting the synths to a tasteful amount. It is a very full arrangement, but not overly so. You found the balance!

A very very solid song. A well balanced mix and the overall production is pretty good too. The singers voice fits the vibe of the song very well. Good job on all the performances as well.
I really liked the intro with the flipping/dialing into a station effect. Well done!!

Awesome, clear vocals in this modern rock tune! Guitar and percussion give a strong performance. Film worthy!

Strong rocker with powerful vocals and arrangement.

What can I say? This is wonderfully done. Love the lead vocals and how the good lyrics are sung. Prestine job.

Wowza, what a Kick Ars tune from the first note!!! Knocked me off my recliner and made me spill my malt!! The audacity, great tune!! This song sounds like some of the Pop Power Groups from the 80's. Terrific recording, great sounding guitar riffs, incredible lead Vocal, this tune needs to get to the masses, stand back!!!
Super Tune!!

like the beginning nice trick surprize beginning good recording skills, like the build up and the back down

Very modern-progressive, with an instrumental sound reminiscent of Cavo. Very strong instrumentally and the lead vocal is right on pitch. This could easily appear in film/TV scenes with matching tension. I wish the harmonies were more layered but overall this is a super-strong performance.

Very well done piece. Top notch vocals. Excellent drum work and guitar work as well. Very well arranged. Very original idea for intro.

This is great stuff. I loved the radio/tape mix recordings at the beginning. Wonderful riffs. Great vocal. Superb instumentation. Great guitar, bass and sophisticated drum pattern. Excellent vocal performance. Lovely short interlude at 3.14. A heavy,complex song yet still melodic, in fact very catchy. Semi-obscure lyrics, but I like that. One of the best tracks I've heard on BJ in a long time.
