People get lost in the years sometimes
The days go by and they’ve changed
When you look into the eyes of friends
And see strangers lookin’ back at you
Fight or flee
With you and me
Another trusted soul gone down the drain

It’s a vicious way to live from lie to lie
Holding onto strings, I’ve got to try
But this puppet’s cut loose, I’m sure
This much is true

People get lost in the tears sometimes
By the wayside and then they’re gone
And you beg into their caverns, yeah
Full of water, full of shame
Where’ve you been?
I knew you when
Another knife stabbed in the back

It’s a vicious way to live from lie to lie
Holding onto strings, I’ve got to try
But this puppet’s cut loose, I’m sure
This much is true

I never bought this game, nor wanted to play
These thoughts have drawn me tired
No more to say.
