A puppet is only strong as it's strings
I forgive and forget, yet the truth still stings
The lies are all easy, and the words are hard to swallow
The leaders get killed, we're never fulfilled, yet we follow (we all follow)

In the back of our minds we know
But then the hearts keep letting go
In the back of our minds we know
I angst to let it go

Too many times, I've watched this crash and burn
At the fork in the road
We've made a wrong turn
We made a wrong...

If these apartment walls could talk
Oh, the story would be a nightmare
When all you want's a dream (when all you want)
We're just living a lie
This will never survive
So we run and hide
Whenever the truth arrives

In the back of our minds we know
But then the hearts keep letting go
In the back of our minds we know
I angst to let go

Too many times, I've watched this crash and burn
At the fork in the road
We've made a wrong turn
We made a wrong.

Don't you know I'm sick of this bullshit
It's like I'm stuck in the ocean
Take it away to the open
Give it a day I'll be hoping for someone to rescue me
Let me put a message in a bottle (to whom it may concern)
A note to self kid, you'll probably never learn
These words are self-inflected (you're drowning yourself)
The fork in this road is your heart choosing heaven or hell (your heart choosing heaven or hell)
