Exaggeration, exaggeration
Exaggeration, baby
The truth strikes out again

Each time the coin gets tossed
I don’t know if I won or lost
Worrying how much it’s gonna cost
If I try and I still fail

Can’t tell the truth from false
Should I run, or should I waltz?
An open wound and a pitcher of salt
Make a tough guy look so frail

(Chorus)

An actress bows for her applause
Wishing she could hide her flaws
As the beast within her bares its claws
And tears her down to size

The best things in life are free
‘Till the world has got you on your knees
It’s the dark side of reality
Like a child telling a lie

(Chorus)

I bottomed out one awful day
in Detox City, USA
They said, “Come back again when you can pay, ‘cause we’re running out of room.”

I couldn’t dream away the hurt, so I made a shirt
And I decorated it with dirt
As I vacationed on the moon

(Chorus and fade)
