lyrics

Like the beauty of an accident
Or the make-up on your face
All I care about's what's inside
'Cuz what's outside is fake
And while you try to smooth it over
With those little deadly pills
Your cracked facade betrays your heart
And it always will

'Cuz I can see through you
Down to the real you
No, you're not what I expected
You're worse than I predicted
I can see through you
And all that you've been through
And it's not wrong that you protect it
After some sick fucker wrecked it, woah-oh-oh
And it's not wrong that you protect it
After some sick fucker wrecked it, woah-oh-oh

You know the rise and autumn of your fears
Has you tossing in your sleep
So many times you spread your thighs
And relish in your misery
You know, it takes some time to step back, baby
When you do, it all seems clear
You're trapped inside a hollow hide
And everybody everywhere...

Can see through you

Down to the real you
No, you're not what they expected
You're worse than they predicted
They can see through you
And all that you've been through
And it's not wrong that you protect it
After some sick fucker wrecked it, woah-oh-oh
And it's not wrong that you protect it
After some sick fucker wrecked it, woah-oh-oh

Now, if you just remain yourself, things are gonna be fine
Don't waste your life, live it for yourself
Or you can pop some pills and wine and sacrifice your health
To further your pursuit to be someone else

Now you don't know why your hopes, they fly
When the moon is in the streets
You wrap yourself in alibis, but everybody that you meet...


Can see through you
Down to the real you
No, you're not what they expected
You're worse than they predicted
They can see through you
And all that you've been through
And it's not wrong that you protect it
After some sick fucker wrecked it, woah-oh-oh
And it's not wrong that you protect it
'Cuz it ain't no fun bein' rejected


(lyrics by Wes Tanenbaum & David Heart)
