Hello stranger
I’ve seen you before
That look that smile gives you away
You’re just one I pass in the crowd
A sihloutte that hides the pain
Your soul it cries a lonely monologue
Of an emptry heart and fake smiles
You are the one who dove head first
Into the pool of doubt and insecurity

You’re picture perfect
Whats the price you pay
Walk next to your reflection
Repeating scenery
Lost respect
No regrets
They’ve painted
False hopes and imagery

Stapled to the wall
Where everyone can see
Up there on your own
Pinned down by the nails of society
The ties you’ve cut cannot be mended
You can’t go back and undo the past
Bridges you burned are nothing more
Than ashes smoking in your memory

You’re picture perfect
What’s the price you pay
Walk next to your reflection
Repeating scenery
Lost respect
No regrets
They’ve painted
False hopes and imagery

Slice, the veins, of existence
Bleed, dry, for acceptance
You’re got your switchblade personality
So quick to stab your friends in the back

You cried for hours this morning
My patience with you’s over

You’re picture perfect
What’s the price you pay
Walk next to your reflection
Repeating scenery
Lost respect
No regrets
They’ve painted
False hopes and imagery

    General CommentI belive that they are talking about someone who is fake, and he wants to know what they had to pay to change themselves so much, liek what they had to give to get that way, and then with the "Walk next to your felection" I think he is talking about someone beinf vein
