Playing Pretend

I’ll be quiet before the storm

I’ll wait until I hear the wind roar

against my windowpane

But I may not hear it

I’m so used to all this pain

every single day

Trust these words when I say

Karma will eventually have its way..

with your kind of Hollywood someday

Egotistical superficial fools..

Hiding that you’re bruised,

ill and confused

Instead you chose to silence,

then use the abused

With all the tools

they used to create the dark side of you:

Mr. Posterboy for Hollywood

Oh, Mr. posterboy for Hollywood

twice as mangled underneath as all those you tear apart

twice as lucky as some of us from the very start

But somehow we manage to have more of a heart..

while you can’t even take the advice from the songs you spark

Always singing be humble, sit down

Oh I wish I could send people like you on an arc

after you caused the moon to lose its color

a self perceived open mind, closed like all the others…

And my personality comes from being born struggling this way…

Unike you Lady Gaga wannabes can actually say

so take your spoiled attitude and drive the banks’ Ferrari far away

Before people like me come out, after waiting years to play

And i’ll have my hook, line, and sinker ready

while you’re the one swimming thinking I’m a catfish

But trust me there will come a day

I’ll be the cat, while you become the fish

 

Keep playing the victim,

Keep playing pretend…

all dressed up in your fancy clothes,

On Sunset Blvd, trying to mend

All that’s missing inside you

Never trying to amend

All the real friends

you left behind

still trying to bend

The light to your will

As your heart runs ahead

on into the traffic…

into the traffic

 

I’ll be quiet as you look in the mirror

Don’t see the point though, when your reflection is so unclear

Such a reptilian like, lost expression

always breathing your fire, rarely showing any compassion

Then turning even that fire on into ice,

now resurrected as the demon dragon,

Jon Snow didn’t defend

now has to kill twice…

And I’m just trying to walk away like Daenerys

eyes red from all the confusion

have you ever thought for a second

You could be your own created illusion?

Spoiled Hollywood cats with talent

but wasted personalities…

now go enjoy all your fairytale fallacies

you know, the ones you created to avoid the realities

of all the guilt you don’t want to see

instead throw upon bystanders like me

But be sure you can say it in person

Right in my eyes or you better flee

oh nevermind,

Got your hopes up

But now I don’t ever want to see

Undeserving hollow eyes upon me

I wonder how deep all your lies go

Make you plea for your sanity

So sad you threw away all your empathy..

we’re worlds apart because you have no humanity…

I was in the sky then you tried to drown me in the sea

So easy to be another locked up heart with a thrown away key…

So difficult to wear your heart on your sleeve, but no one said it would ever be easy…

 

Keep playing the victim,

Keep playing pretend…

all dressed up in your fancy clothes,

On Sunset Blvd, trying to mend

All that’s missing inside you

Never trying to amend

All the real friends

you left behind

still trying to bend

The light to your will

As your heart runs ahead

on into the traffic…

into the traffic
