[Verse 1]
Too many miles, for too many missions.
Breakdown, fall down, shut up and listen.

New paths paved in old ways,
Show us how you made waves
You took for granted all my days
Holding hands like held grudges

Keep me rapt and contained in
Your words that impress critics
We’re damned sure you staged it,
Through your deceit honesty trudges.

[Chorus]
Eyes wide with guessing.
While your mouth lies open,
Hoping, you’re joking
True thoughts never spoken

Always, go for broke
Use chances like tokens
Cash in my weakness
Your prize? Its me broken

[Verse 2]
Dry your eyes, save your tears for an excuse
Drops in a tissue, your truth, my refuse.

Performing, Conforming
Into your persona
Its just so damn convincing
Recommend you for the Tony

You’ve baited acts with the hooks
Atrract attention from masses
Theyre seeing what I once saw
A bright smile with no hint of malice
A petty queen atop a thinly cloaked shamble of a palace.

[Chorus]
Eyes wide with guessing.
While your mouth lies open,
Hoping, you’re joking
True thoughts never spoken

Always, go for broke
Use chances like tokens
Cash in my weakness
Your prize? Its me broken

[Verse 3]
Fade out and fade in
Your spotlights are shoddy
In their hands, you’re waning
Blame who? For your follies

The fall from the top
Disgraceful so shameless
Blame who? Your esteem
Not flawless, its blemished

Tarnished, you’re finished
No Show-Biz, we’ll witness
The breakdown in half time
To sounds of a near miss

Folded and stacked
On dust licked shelves
Given your image
Ill break you myself
