You can dress me up real nice
But when friday night rolls around you won't find me in the crowds.
You can make it what you will but this life that I've been leading
I've only been deceiving
Everyone and you, including me, but eventually
I'll make it what I like cause the love I've been stealing is a lie not worth believing
I know just what to do cause I've been down this road before and it spun my mind in circles

Now you're just a pill I take to get my thrills
We're in the absences of a God so I can love you just as much whenever I like

There's no use in hanging on when you've got nothing there to hold
I feel more like a stranger each time that I come home
I've been quiet in the corner, a wallflower in bloom
Behind the bar lights and a cigarette.

There's no use in cutting ties when there ain't nothing that's tied on
It's just another sad goodbye to shrug off and move along
As I'm hanging in the corner, a wallflower in bloom
behind the bar lights and cigarette smoke in rooms

You know if I could you know that I would come back as someone new.
