Sooner or later, your colours will run
You may as well shut down this parade
This time, honey, your words won’t wash
Your facade, is beginning to fade

I’m going the wrong way about this
Or so I’ve been told
The more you try to
Push your ideals on me

Don’t try to tell me these are the best years of my life
There’s only so far I can see when you keep putting this pressure on me

Sooner or later, your colours will run
You may as well shut down this parade
This time, honey, your words won’t wash
Your facade, is beginning to fade

You’re becoming inhuman, like a machine
Stop clinging onto me, stop clinging onto me
It’s about time to destroy this illusion
It’s my chance to be, I’m telling you they will see

Don’t try to tell me these are the best years of my life
There’s only so far I can see when you keep putting this pressure on me

Sooner or later, your colours will run
You may as well shut down this parade
This time, honey, your words won’t wash
Your facade, is beginning to fade

Wrech yourself out of this dream
Because you must
Because really you’re the same as me
Are you ready to burst?
Go on and cough it up
Cough it up
Cough it up

Sooner or later, your colours will run (Are you ready to burst?)
You may as well shut down this parade (They will run)
Oh honey, your words won’t wash
Your facade, is beginning to fade (Go on and cough it up, cough it up)
