You’re so lost you could fade away
Into the background of your life, just let it decay
On and on the world spins
Can’t take a moment to think, can’t begin again
Onward and upward you must go
When you slip and fall, look out below
Dangling on the edge
With a death grip on the ledge
When you look down you see
The razor sharp blades of reality
Your costume is ripped, your makeup smeared
This is what you get for pretending all these years
Like a child wearing her mother’s clothes
Pretending you had everything under control
The time to act is now, don’t delay
Why fake it another day?
Alone is better by yourself
Stop thinking about someone else
Where were they when your heart was breaking?
You thought they cared…you were mistaken
Take the hurt and turn it into strength
Who the hell cares what everyone else thinks
Life may become complicated, but at least it won’t be put on hold
You are strong you need to regain control
Take a deep breath and look deep inside
Lift yourself up and have some pride
The choice is yours, but if you stay
Nothing is ever going to change
