The real you is wasted, your actions in vain
You beat down your passions for financial gain
You're missing the point, you've forgotten your name
Don't make excuses, don't give me reasons
No explanations, no one cares
You're oh so convincing
You lie to yourself
Caught in the thinking of everyone else
All for the gamble of wealth
Compromise, compromise yourself
Compromise, compromise, you'll sell your soul

On the outside you're fine
You're owning your role
Manufacturing smile is just getting so old
How long can you last 'til this all takes its toll
Don't make excuses, don't give me reasons
No explanations, no one cares
You've come now so far, the way that you act
You know in our heart what you wish could take back
But you've drifted so far from the tracks
Compromise, compromise yourself
Compromise, compromise, you'll sell your soul

You're gonna sell your soul
Your reasons, deceiving
Your actions, misleading
You've got your price, forgot your past
Now that you're here, there's no turning back
