Song & Lyrics



Lyrics

Keep you in the dark,
You know they all...pretend.
Keep you in the dark,
And so it all began.

Send in your skeletons,
Sing as their bones go marching in...again.
The need you buried deep,
The secrets that you keep are ever ready;
Are you ready?
I'm finished making sense,
Done pleading ignorance;
That whole defense.

Spinning infinity, boy,
The wheel is spinning me;
It's never-ending, never-ending,
Same old story!

What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender!
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender!
What if I say I will never surrender?

In time or so I'm told,
I'm just another soul for sale...oh, well.
The page is out of print,
We are not permanent;
We're temporary, temporary,
Same old story!

What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender!
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender!
What if I say I will never surrender?

I'm the voice inside your head,
You refuse to hear.
I'm the face that you have to face,
Mirrored in your stare.
I'm what's left, I'm what's right,
I'm the enemy.
I'm the hand that will take you down,
Bring you to your knees.

So who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?

Keep you in the dark,
You know they all pretend.

What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender!
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender!
What if I say I will never surrender?

What if I say I'm not like the others?
(Keep you in the dark,)
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
(You know they all...pretend.)
You're the pretender!
What if I say I will never surrender?

What if I say I'm not like the others?
(Keep you in the dark,)
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
(You know they all...pretend.)
You're the pretender!
What if I say I will never surrender?

So who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
