Beautiful Christmas, beautiful eyes

Hiding the pain of beautiful lies

Lies so perfect you could almost believe

That they were truths, no need to deceive

Beautiful scarves and beautiful hats

Emblazoned on cardigans and front-door mats

Keeping in heat, while keeping out pain

Darkness and shadows, flurries and rain

Beautiful lights upon beautiful trees

Lit by the window for the whole world to see

Beauty in darkness and beauty in sin

Beauty so that none see the lies harboured within

Beautiful sunsets for beautiful lies

Trapped in a fire burning beautiful lives

Lives up in flames, with the fires we cry

There’s a beautiful silence, as all our lies die
