  • What happened to you
    You've played the victim for so long now in this game
    What I thought was true
    It's made of fiction and I'm following the same

    But if I try
    To make sense of this mess I'm in
    I'm not sure where I should begin
    I'm falling, I'm falling

    Now I'm in over my head, for something I said
    Completely misread, I'm better off dead.
    And now I can see, how fake you can be
    This hypocracy's beginning to get to me.

    It's none of my concern
    Why look to me because I don't believe in fame
    I guess you never heard I've met our makers
    They don't even know your name

    But if I had to say goodbye to leave this hell
    I'd say my time has served me well
    I'm falling
    I'm falling

    Now I'm in over my head, for something I said
    Completely misread, I'm better off dead.
    And now I can see, how fake you can be
    This hypocracy's beginning to get to me.

    This came long before those who suffer more
    I'm too awake for this to be a nightmare
    What's with my disgrace I lost the human race
    No one plans for it to blow up in their face

    Who said it was easy to put back all these pieces
    Who said it was so easy to put back all of these pieces

    Now I'm in over my head, for something I said
    Completely misread, I'm better off dead.
    And now I can see, how fake you can be
    This hypocracy's beginning to get to me.

    Over my head, better off dead
    Over my head, better off dead
