They can crawl inside of you
Make you writhe around screaming
Until you push the infection out
Then you’re only filled with doubt
If they strip all away
Sell your useless parts for scrap

You call these people your friends?

Every note that you played
Every song that you sang
Was the start of something beautiful
But you did better
You are the idol

If they shove it in your face
It’s your migraine companion
Leaves you broken and bleeding
But you bet they’ll say it’s needed
They can put you on the show
They can pull all of your strings
Abandon your insecurities
This is how you’ll make your living
