"Fake It" as written by and Dale William Stewart Shaun Morgan Welgemoed....
Who's to know if your soul will fade at all
The one you sold to fool the world
You lost your self-esteem along the way
Yeah

Good god your comin' up with reasons
Good god your dragging it out
Good god its the changing of the seasons
I feel so raped
So follow me down

And just fake it if your out of direction
Fake it if you don't belong
Fake it if you feel like a infection
Woah your such a fuckin' hypocrite

And you should know that the lies wont hide your falls
No sense in hiding all of yours
You gave up on your dreams along the way
Yeah

Good god your comin' up with reasons
Good god your dragging it out
Good god its the changing of the seasons
I feel so raped
So follow me down

And just fake it if your out of direction
Fake it if you don't belong
Fake it if you feel like a infection


Woah your such a fuckin' hypocrite

Whoah whoah

I can fake with the best of anyone
I can fake with the best of em all
I can fake with the best of anyone
I can fake it all

Who's to know if your soul will fade at all
The one you sold to fool the world
You lost your self-esteem along the way
Yeah

Good god your comin' up with reasons
Good god your dragging it out
Good god its the changing of the seasons
I feel so raped
So follow me down

And just fake it if your out of direction
Fake it if you don't belong
Fake it if you feel like a infection
Woah your such a fuckin' hypocrite

Fake it if your out of direction
Fake it if you don't belong
Fake it if you feel like a infection
Woah your such a fuckin' hypocrite

    General CommentThis songs meaning is pretty clear-cut. I think "Who's to know if your soul will fade at all, the one you sold to fool the world..." It means that when you cast away your personality so that you can be what everyone else wants you to be, your soul can get damaged and you can lose your own sense of identity.

    General CommentThis song is very clearly about Amy Lee. I laughed in fact the first time I heard the song. I had been reading biographies on Shaun and despite Amy's scathing media comments and lyrics from CMWYS there was still a perception that Shaun did not retort. I think what you are seeing is a shallow woman too superficial to intelligently conceal her contempt, and a talented and prolific songwriter way out of her league. Here is the funniest part I am an Evanescence fan and while I believe Amy is a talented songwriter and performer, she is seriously outmatched in this case. Give Shaun credit he lost his brother and has been through addiction, he is still here and facing the music (pun intended). He didn't use a media empire to deny anything, or point the finger at someone else (ala Amy Lee). Since I am old enough to have suffered through most of Shaun's experiences and I also have come out the other end I can say he has talent and a lot more character than Amy Lee can fathom until she finishes cutting teeth.

    General CommentOh yeah. This song is pretty self explanatory. It's about pretending to be what you're not to fit in. I really like the lyrics to it.

    Lyric CorrectionWhoever typed these lyrics can't spell worth a $#!+. It is definitely who's not whose, and you're not your.
