I feel you all around me
your voice, it surrounds me
you keep telling me what I want to hear
"you're beautiful"
"so talented"
"I need you"
"we got a thing"
"you ever need something, I'll be right there"

fear is a place to live
rip off the mask from your head
show me the real face that you hide...

I see you from a mile away
keep staring, acting like you gotta say:
"you're beautiful"
"so talented"
"I need you"
"we got a thing"
"you ever need something, I'll be right here"

fear is a place to live
rip off the mask from your head
show me the real face that you hide...

fake ass people surround me
they're always nice to begin
they dig in their claws
fake ass people surround me
digging their claws right in me
they're always nice to begin but
I always get fucked in the end
fake ass people surround me
digging their claws right in me
they're always nice to begin but
I always get fucked in the end
I always get fucked in the end
I always get fucked in the end
I always get fucked in the end
I always get fucked in the end

fear is a place to live
rip off the mask from your head
show me the real face that you hide...

fake ass!
fake ass!

fear is a place to live
rip off the mask from your head
show me the real face that you hide...

    General CommentAgain, pretty simple meaning here. People putting on a front and acting all nice when they aren't. Usually they have a motive to take advantage of someone, Jon in this case.

    General CommentMelekith is right,
    people using other to "fight" (whatever act they expect to do).
    So, while you fight for them, they are stabbing to get all the glory or ... you earned from fighting for them.
    It's simple, but so true.

    (Sorry for bad spelling, sentence structure).

    Song MeaningAs Melekith said.

    It's funny cause this album is probably the closest to how I've felt for years, this song in particular with me dropping everything to help out friends with their shit but then whenever I need to get something done, those "friends" are never there making excuses until the next time they want something from me. Which repeats itself when I know they're fake but I still feel that helping them out will still get them to scratch my back too but it never changes.
