When you cried you were lost, you fell asleep
When you dreamed you believed
When you lied you only lied unto yourself
And when you died you could see
I never cried the way you did
I didn't like it when you yelled
I never felt the way you felt
I didn't like it when you prayed
I thought you fooled yoursef

When you were shy you got drunk
When you were drunk you were a fool
When you were a fool you fell apart
When you fell apart you picked yourself up again
Didn't you?

This ain't a lesson for your day its just a game you've got to play
Its just a lie you've got to live
Its just a smile you've got to fake so you're controllable
And it helps you not to break
This is a crime you have to give to try to save your soul
This is a lesson not a rule
It wasn't easy when the penny dropped inside your head
But now you know the joke you tell it to your friends and they're all

When you were shy you got drunk
When you were drunk you were a fool
When you were a fool you fell apart
When you fell apart you picked yourself up again
Didn't you?


When you were told you wouldn't bite it
When you are old you will regret it
When you were bad you tried to hide it
When you were mad you just broke it
And when you were laughing you were dry
When you were crying you were high
And every escape is just a lie
Every escape is just a lie
Every escape is just a lie
Every escape is just a lie

Cuz when you were shy you got drunk
When you were drunk you were a fool
When you were a fool you fell apart
When you fell apart you built yourself up again
Didn't you?
