Failures and fakes and those who don't get their way
All seem to have excuses for how they think
Justified, dignified, they all pledge their innocence
And I would know because, because I'm one of them

It's through expression that we make our understanding
Are we who we are if it's who we appear to be?
Let me tell you friends, I've found out the hard way
Imitations don't produce originality

Don't, don't, don't, don't think I've escaped
I'm just as guilty
Because we're all failures and fakes
And if you won't believe it
Well then I've seen your future
It's not that impressive

Excuses, excuses we got 'em all, they're weighing us down
We all got faults, we all got faults
But no one seems to be blaming themselves

Friends, I've found out the hard way
Hypocrisy runs free when you talk as if you're blameless

Don't, don't, don't, don't think I've escaped
I'm just as guilty
We're all failures and fakes
And if you won't believe it
Well then I've seen your future
It's not that impressive

But if you're not willing to be reasonable then I'll be leaving
Because there's no use in trying to change the proud or heal the ungrateful
Heal, heal the ungrateful
But you know better than I do
That your walls are falling down, and there's no way for you to stop it
This is no one's fault but your own (hey, hey, hey, hey)
So stop running (hey, hey, hey, hey) from your problems
Because they won't fix themselves

We're all broken
We're all so broken
It takes a man to acknowledge his weakness
We're broken
We're all so broken
It takes a man to acknowledge his weakness

There may only be a speck in your eye
But denial's gonna keep it there, keep it there
Yes I know there's a plank in my eye, but I'm willing
Willing to admit it
You got no trouble finding sin in my eyes
But all that changes when it seems like it's your neck on the line
