She likens herself as to one of the greats
But if you look in her eyes all you see is hate
She screams her insecurities
and the foolish things she thinks
She's just a broken toy
In a land of make believe

You're dead inside
With no regret
When the light go down you're standing all alone
You're dead inside
and there's no end
Left with nothing here but your crown of thorns

Your fear is what I've suffocated
Your lie is what was fornicated
Your fear is what I've suffocated
Your lie is what was fornicated

Mother playing the game
Father playing the game
My lover always the same
But when you stand back and look
You are the only one to blame

Mother playing the game
Father playing the game
My lover always the same
But when you stand back and look
You are the only one to blame

You're dead inside
Hasn't hit you yet
When the lights go down you're standing alone
You're dead inside
You've lost the bet
Left with nothing here but your crown of thorns

Each scar has a story
Where they came from no one knows
Fabricating the past, blow by blow
Where's the sense of reason
When does her run end
Cause when the lights go down
She's cold and dead

Your fear is what I've suffocated
Your lie is what was fornicated
Your fear is what I've suffocated
Your lie is what was fornicated
Your fear is what I've suffocated
Your lie is what was fornicated
Your fear is what I've suffocated
Your lie is what was fornicated

Mother playing the game
Father playing the game
My lover always the same
But when you stand back and look
You are the only one to blame

Mother playing the game
Father playing the game
My lover always the same
But when you stand back and look
You are the only one to blame

You're living in fear I'm living right here
You're living in fear I'm living right here

You smile at me like a long lost friend
Extend your hand to mine as if we could amend
You smile at me like a long lost friend
Extend your hand to mine as if we could amend

Your fear is what I've suffocated
Your lie is what was fornicated

Mother playing the game
Father playing the game
My lover always the same
But when you stand back and look
You are the only one to blame

Mother playing the game
Father playing the game
My lover always the same
But when you stand back and look
You are the only one to blame
