Lyrics

put on your chemical disguise
have another drink to numb your mind
ease the pain of disappointments that you just don’t want to feel

your dreams you’ll never realize
you spend your time just getting high
and no-one cares about you
‘cause it’s all just make believe

and I thought I heard you cry out in the night
but I know that wouldn’t be like you

drown your insecurities
your secrets never to reveal
strip away your inhibitions
you become what you want to be

can’t you see that we’re all laughing now
you stumble - we will watch you drown
you thought there could be more
and this bottle held the key

you’re so perfect so much better than the truth
at least that’s what you keep on telling me

I don’t know why you’re always trying to lose yourself
You’ve lost control
You need to get back from the edge

you’ve lost it all still you keep up
the self delusion that you’re the One
turn your back on anybody who tells you
that something’s wrong


you don’t need anybody else
just this bottle and yourself
hiding in a corner of the world
just slipping away

you’re so perfect so much better than the truth
at least that’s what you kept on telling me

I don’t know why you’re always trying to lose yourself
You’ve lost control
You need to get back from the edge
Why won’t you learn that this is no solution
Just an easy way out from a cold reality

<bridge>
Can’t you see you’ve wasted all your time
Now there’s nothing left and you don’t mean that much to anyone
And it’s getting colder now
The days are getting shorter
And the party’s over
Your friends all went away
