did you think that id play
these games with you
did you think i couldnt help it
im strong enough
ive been good enough
shut down shut down
youre the big mistake
im losing all control
and this is my fate
from here on out
you can always count on me
count on me to be your enemy
count on me
these are the faces
thats what youre living through
this is all about you
youre slipping in and out of time
who are you to decide
which one of us winds up broken
for a lifetime
and so youll never be satisfied
until one of us falls apart
ive had enough of this
and these are the faces
youve lost your gold dreams
you failed to read the signs
youd find out theres no answers
to your stupid ass questions
you can try and tell yourself
that everythings alright
when someone is taking all your fame
thats what youre living through
these are the faces
and i think that theyre all coming after you
when youre slipping in and out of time
who are you to decide
which one of us winds up broken
for a lifetime
i know youll never be satisfied
until one of us falls apart
ive had enough
enough of this
and these are the faces
two faced and pretentious
thats what youre living through
these are the faces
youre slipping in and out of time
who are you to decide
which one of us winds up broken
for a lifetime
and so youll never be satisfied
until one of us falls apart
ive had enough of this
and these are the faces
youre slipping in and out of time
who are you to decide
which one of us winds up broken
for a lifetime
i know youll never be satisfied
until one of us falls apart
ive had enough
enough of this
and these are the faces

    General Commentpeople who try to control you, and decide things for you, and asking who the hell do you think you are?

    General Commentyeah...i think this song is about people who like to control others and make them be something they arent until one of them breaks.

    General CommentWell, if you really want to know what this song is about, or at least a perfect example, see Zoolander. Actually, this song was written for, or at least used in, the movie soundtrack. They played only about 2 seconds of the song, but what can you say, they should have put more!

    General CommentThe beginning of Zoolander is about conflict between male model Derek Zoolander and his rival Hansel, and if you listen to this song, you will see- er, hear that it's about a conflict between two people, competing for fame.

    General CommentIn fact, when he says "when you're slipping in and out of time,/who are you to decide,/which one of us winds up broken, for a lifetime..." he probably means the rival model is having trouble keeping up with the fashion trends (slipping in and out of time) but is more popular than the singer, who considers themself a better model or pop star. Since Jay is a fashion model anyway, it makes perfect sense!

    did you think that id play
    these games with you
    did you think i couldnt help it
    im strong enough
    ive been good enough
    shut(step) down shut(step) down

    and so(still) youll never be satisfied
    until one of us falls apart
    ive had enough of this
    and these are the faces

    youve lost your gold dreams(golden reigns)
    you failed to read the signs
    yould(you'll) find out theres no answers
    to your stupid ass questions
    you can try and tell yourself
    that everythings alright
    when someone is taking all your fame
    thats what youre living through

    these are the faces
    and i think that theyre all coming after you
    when youre slipping in and out of time
    who are you to decide
    which one of us winds up broken
    for a lifetime
    i know(and no) youll never be satisfied
    until one of us falls apart
    ive had enough
    enough of this
    and these are the faces

    (and nothing can go away ((the way you do)))

    two faced and pretentious

    thats what youre living through
    these are the faces
    (when)youre slipping in and out of time
    who are you to decide
    which one of us winds up broken
    for a lifetime
    and so youll never be satisfied
    until one of us falls apart
    ive had enough of this
    and these are the faces

    i know (and still) youll never be satisfied
    until one of us falls apart
    ive had enough
    enough of this
    and these are the faces


    this song is clearly about two people competing to maintain their life goals.
    he is like saying you know what dude we're both caught up i done about the hidden faces that people put up. even though it's really just to get back at that person.
