"The Fool's Fooling Himself" as written by and Scott Matthews....
Oh, friend child
What hell with the innocent smile
In a drained state
Filled his breath blow right out the gate

Losing disbelief
Seen his laugh from the way down the street
Finds it hard to breath
When you're a shot from the dead-end sleeve

Yeah, I only wince at your hell
I was paid to except what was dead
Like a fool I've been fooling myself
Fool like no one else

I'll be the Mars
Losing all control for sure
I'm in debt with pain
I can't bleed no more

If the morning sun
Fills your eyes and it's sun in your laws?
See the clouds face
Raise a smile to the cries that he hates

Only time will tell
If the rose isn't red anymore
And expresses are blank
Then you know who to thank
Who to thank, who to thank

I only wince at your hell
I was paid to except what was dead
Like a fool I've been fooling myself
Fool like no one else

I'll be the Mars?
Losing all control for sure
I'm in debt with pain
I can't bleed no more

    General CommentIsn't it "Oh fair child" and "schock full of jealousy"?

    "I only wince at your well
    I was paid to accept what was dealt"

    Just what it sounds like to me. Nevertheless a trully amazing song. I swear he could be jeff buckley's reincarnation, although that's more than likely impossible lol. The voices are so similiar.

    But i have no idea about the general meaning. I think the chorus he has been putting off feelings of something that has happened "I was paid to accept what was dealt" and now he is "in debt with pain". thats all i got.

    General CommentThese lyrics are incorrect; here are the right ones:

    Oh, fair child
    What hell with the innocent smile
    In a drained state
    Filters breath, blowing right out the gate

    Losing disbelief
    Seen his life run away down the street
    Finds it hard to breathe
    when you're in shock from the jealousy

    I only wince at your Hell
    I was paid to accept what was dealt
    Like a fool I've been fooling myself
    Fooling myself
    I bleed remorse
    losing all control for sure
    I'm in debt with pain
    I can bleed no more.

    If the morning sun
    fills your eyes
    and it's sun in your laws
    See the clown's face
    raise a smile to the crowds that he hates
    Only time will tell
    if the rose isn't red anymore
    and expressions are blank
    Then you know who to thank
    who to thank, who to thank

    I only wince at your Hell
    I was paid to accept what was dealt
    Like a fool I've been fooling myself
    Fooling myself
    I'll bleed remorse
    losing all control for sure
    I'm in debt with pain
    I can bleed no more.
