The Mynabirds-Numbers Don't Lie

This indie-rock band comes from America. Laura was the main member and then she formed the rest of the band "The Mynabirds". Already, they have released two albums and they are both lovely! Their music have been described as "openhearted, politically engaged, feminist pop that, miraculously, never veers into schmaltz." by Pitchfork Media. "Numbers Don't Lie" is a song possibly about war, even though its melody and music are sweet and happy! Read the lyrics and watch the music video of "Numbers Don't Lie" here.



The Mynabirds-Numbers Don't Lie
It was always what you said 
It would be, and nothing more
Through the smoke screens and the pipe dreams
And the blood on the floor

You say it's black, well it's bound to be black.
You made up your mind, and you see with that.

Baby, if you wanna be right
I will let you be right,
I will let you be right.
You know that the numbers don't lie,
Oh no, the numbers don't lie;
Two wrongs will not make it right.

You said, "One and one and one and one is three."
But I know my lines and my graphs and my math-
Honey, that ain't me.

If you want it, you can have it-
All the lines on the cellar floor.
Don't mean nothing, just a bad dream-
Even if you think it's more.

You say it's black, well it's bound to be black.
You made up your mind, and you see with that.

Baby, if you wanna be right
I will let you be right,
I will let you be right.
You know that the numbers don't lie,
Oh no, the numbers don't lie;
Two wrongs will not make it right.
