lyrics

I am not like you.
I'm not here to tell you that I'm happy.
You don't want to be like me.
I just wear this mask for you every fucking day.
I force a smile, pretend everything’s alright.
You deflect, ignore, deny.
I am not like you.
I'm such a talented actor, you see what I want you to see.
You're such a talented liar, you think what you're supposed to think.
You can tell yourself what you want to hear, but that doesn't make it true.
You hide behind opinions, and ignore the facts.
Living in the dark, right where you’ve chosen to be.
Try to bend the world to your will, life is not what you want it to be.
Honesty and sincerity only equal misery, (but) I won't sacrifice truth for comfort.
There’s no escape from this reality.
I'm such a talented actor, you see what I want you to see.
You're such a talented liar, you think what you're supposed to think.
You can tell yourself what you want to hear, but that doesn't make it true.
Stop living the dream, and wake up to the nightmare.
