Judge me and think what you want
I’m trying to do the best with what I’ve got
We don’t get to choose everything in life
But it’s even harder when you pull out your knife

Thanks for all you’ve said about me
Maybe you’re the one who needs therapy

And now I feel like I am not real
I’m coming undone and I’m falling apart
It’s so hard to see when your lies
cut so deep
I’m going under
And you’re pushing me down, down, down

So glad it all seems so simple to you
And you think you know just what I should
You don’t know what it’s like to walk in my shoes
You’re so full of opinions but you just don’t have a clue

You’re feeling oh so pretty
Your hair hanging down all over your face
It really is a pity
You lost your head with one small taste

So tell me are you happy?
Or is it just part of the show?
The face in your broken mirror
Is someone you don’t even know

Where have the good things gone?
It all just seems wrong
And you can’t go on

Lost in an empty stare
You don’t seem to care
Are you still there?

You and your powdered pinky
And a rolled-up hundred dollar note
You think you’re oh so tricky
The bouncing cheques you gladly wrote

So tell me are you happy?
Or is it just part of the show
The face in your broken mirror
Is someone you don’t even know

Despite the hunger
Who knows what we will find
A broken mirror
An empty bottle of wine

Maybe I will
Maybe I won’t
Simple complexity stuck in my throat
Facing an unhappy ending
Then there’s a rainbow

Atleast five things all at the same time
Text me when you’ve made up your mind
Cos I’m like nothing else you’ll ever find

Skinny latte mama
So arrogantly naive
Only when it’s good for you
But what are we to believe

Waiting for something better
Afraid of how you’ll be seen
Hey baby why don’t you come talk to me
