A somewhat inviting, very different kind of hell
To live without ever looking at your self
You see life is so much simpler when it's balanced on a shelf
That's been hung perfectly placed out in the sun
Now look how you're admired by everyone
Who sees you now they know your name
But is it real?
All your bad habits have become your life's appeal

(Woah oh oh)

And then it's where did you go wrong
Where did you go wrong?

(Woah oh oh)

You're screaming where did you go wrong
Where did you go wrong?
Well first of all
And worst of all
You looked inside yourself, didn't care much for what you saw
For what you saw

Can you imagine? Did you ever play with dolls?
You can protect your cotton heart behind a skin of porcelain walls
You keep staring to your future
Through these marvel lights they show
Everything your never ever gonna have
That's a giant pill but swallow if you can
You'll start again
You'll change your name
And be reborn
And begin to mend all that has been torn

(Woah oh oh)

And then it's where did you go wrong
Where did you go wrong?

(Woah oh oh)

You're screaming where did you go wrong
Where did you go wrong?
Well first of all
And worst of all
You looked inside yourself, didn't care much for what you saw
For what you saw
