you caught my eye,
when i walked by.
tension from the way you move,
your heart is bruised.
we sit and laugh,
it's all an act.
the lies they see you through,
you’re such a fool.

As makeup runs down your cheeks,
you found that you are lost again.
Try to make your way back home,
found that you're alone.

put on your dress,
and look your best,
let this be your night,
we'll laugh and die.
So, drink it down,
you need this now,
make the pain go away,
I can't be saved.

As makeup runs down your cheeks,
you found that you are lost again.
Try to make your way back home,
found that you're alone.

Fall down,
searching for the perfect place,
for you to lose it all again.
Slow down,
keep it at a steady pace,
as I watch you fade away.

As makeup runs down your cheeks,
you found that you are lost again.
Try to make your way back home,
found that you're alone.

As makeup runs down on your cheeks,
you found that you are lost again.
Try to make your way back home,
found that you're alone.

    General CommentOkay...make up by escape the fate. I love this song it happens to be my favorite. In general it is a pretty sad song if you understand the lyrics. There is a girl and she is not actually lost but she is lost in the sense that she does not know who she really is. She is extremely depressed because she lives every day being who people want her to be and not who she honestly is on the inside.

    the demo version is the best though... you can download it on myspace still i think, if you look up 'ETFstuff' under music...
    but im pretty sure they changed the version, so now they have the recorded one up, which isnt as good D=
