I can't stand the sight of you
I can't stand what you put me through
Your life's a lie
That you hide
Is it that terrible being you inside?
I can't stand all the thought of you
I can't stand all the things you do
Why do you try to justify?
You are just too scared to be you inside

Let (it all go)
Let (it all go)
Let (it all go)
Let (it all go)

Look at you, all I see is a man too afraid to really be
Look at you, all I see is a man too afraid to really be

I can't stand what you put me through
I can't stand even the thought of you
Your secret lies that you hide
Is it that terrible being you inside?

Let (it all go)
Let (it all go)
Let (it all go)
Let (it all go)

Look at you, all I see is a man too afraid to really be
Look at you, all I see is a man too afraid to really be
Look at you, all I see is a man too afraid to really be
Look at you, all I see is a man too afraid to really be

You try so hard to be wanted
False emotions tears you fronted
I feel being a person relies on one thing, be yourself, let you come through
You're too afraid to really be someone who isn't false, who doesn't care to be
You're too afraid to really be, be yourself, let you come through

Fake
Fake
Fake
Fake

Fake, you'll regret it, you'll regret it
Fake, you'll regret it, you'll regret it
Fake, you'll regret it, you'll regret it
Fake, you'll regret it, you'll regret it
Fake, you'll regret it, you'll regret it
Fake, you'll regret it, you'll regret it
Fake, you'll regret it, you'll regret it
Fake, you'll regret it, you'll regret it

Let (it all go)
Let (it all go)
Let (it all go)
Let (it all go)

    General CommentYeah this song is basicly the same as "Clown" and "Lies". People who pretend to be someone eles just to fit in with the crowd.

    My OpinionWhen I listen to this song I imagine a man standing in front of a mirror. The song is then sung by his reflection.

    In other words to me it comes across as a inner struggle between yourself. You've spent your life pretending to be what everyone wants to see, but that is not who you really are ... all these years you've hidden your true self.

    General CommentThe line when Jon is screaming "Fake!" isn't "you ain't with it". It's "You'll regret it".
