Don't walk on eggshells for me
I'm not as fragile as you think
Stop making your words fancy
Why say "I don't know"
When you actually do?
Just tell me what you really mean
Really mean
When we're alone
Why can't you tell the truth?
When we're alone, you know what you should do

Avoid reality
As you dig yourself a hole
Excuses are pathetic
Why say "I apologize"
When you don't regret a thing
Please tell me what you really mean
Really mean
You say these words
Why should I put up with lies?
You say these words when you know that they are untrue

Mean what you say cuz no one will take the blame
Mean those words; the responsibility's yours

    General CommentDon't want ?????????? for me
    Im not as fragile as you think
    Stop making your words fancy.
    Why say "I don't know"
    When you actually do?
    Just tell me what you
    Really mean, really mean

    I watched the other day
    As you dig yourself a hole,
    Excuses are pathetic.
    Why say "I apologize"
    When you don't regret a thing?
    Just tell me what you
    Really mean, really mean.

    You say these words
    Why should I put up with lies
    You say these words
    When you know that they are not true.

    Mean what you say ‘cause
    No one will take the blame.
    Mean those words or
    Responsibility's yours
    Mean what you say ‘cause
    No one will take the blame.
    Mean those words...

    There, I filled in some of the blanks in the song

    Why say "I don't know,"
    When you actually do?
    Just tell me what you
    Really mean, really mean

    When were alone
    Why can't you
    Tell the truth?
    When we’re alone
    You know what you should do.

    I watched the other day (for some reason i hear "reality" on this line)
    As you dig yourself a hole,
    Excuses are pathetic.

    General Commentthat's because the line is actually:

    Avoid reality
    As you dig yourself a hole,
    Excuses are pathetic.
