Something snapped today
And that's just fine
I suppose it's been comin'
For quite some time
And I'm gonna leave you here
Like you left me all alone
Keep your hands off my life
And go get your own

I'm tryin' to believe
That I've got a chance
I'd like to think
My life's in my hands
If it hurts too much
I'll change my ways
And it's gonna be hell
That's just how it is
But I'm through with this fakeness
I'm done with this shit
Cause I've really had enough
Of you these days

Cause it's just that everyone
I know
Tells all these lies
They're just lyin' to
Themselves
And it's not right
You'd rather
Just pretend
Than try to fight
And you could save yourself
But you'd have to shut your mouth
And open your up eyes

    General CommentI wrote this song about letting go of all the crap you can get caught up in in life. For me, it's been addictions and the impossiblity of trying to make everyone happy. Eventually, you have to live for yourself and be honest with people about how they are. That's what this is. Just my way of saying I'm through with the fakeness and done with that shit.
