Relative filth - a slow, sad song for Glendon.

Info: A song about being over-optimistic with society. Questions statements that make us seem good. There'll allways be sin on this earth, it's just a matter of opening your eyes to find it.

[chorus]
(6) Beautiful things in life, 100101
(8) are they as big as we make them? 010-----? / 10010010
(6) Beautiful things in life,
(8) What is the motive behind it? 10010010
 
[v1]
(9) Are we wearing rose-tinted glasses?
8?  How distorted do we want our view? / is our view?
(9) we all have (beat) selective senses (maybe 100110110)
( ) filtering out what we dislike
 
?chorus?
 
[v2]
(9) Dulling our senses with painkiller
(4+4) coz the truth hurts, yeah, the truth hurts.
(9) 
(8) 
 
chorus
 
[v3]
(9) Disposing trash in beautiful bins.
(8) Doesn't change the fact that it's there.
(9) Bins can't have true inner beauty,
(8) It's what's inside that makes it count.
 
[bridge]
(9) Dressing up in our favourite mask, (101001010)
(7) Just building a grand fascade, [echo:]it's an illusion.
(9) Masters of deception, we all are.
10) Only in Heaven there'll be pure truth. 1001001001
(8) We're livin' in (pause) relative filth. ((0101-1000 OR 0101-1111) also slowing down)
 
[v4]
(9) There's only one way out of this mess
(8) to be freed from this world of trash
(9) ... washed in the blood of the Lamb /
(8) who was slain...
 
[ending, maybe with chorus?]
 
[scratchpad]
Why would anybody want to live here?
 
ideas:
(Sinful core, whitewashed tombs, looking good on outside, choose not to see bad, 
bad can be seen if looked for, always there.)
