She thinks I'm Iron Man

That I don't feel pain

I don't understand why joy

Must be feigned

I'm so fortunate yet

Filled with self hate

That the mirror shows

Me an ingrate

I could easily start

Pointing fingers

Since the blame is mine

It always lingers

That the truth it lies in

My reflection

Though this can't go on

There's no question

Yeah I know that my

World is coming down

Yeah I know I'm the one

Who brought it down

Bring it on down

How quickly pass the days,

Long is the night

Lying in bed awake,

Bathed in starlight

Better to live as

King of beasts

Than as a lamb

Scared and weak

I will deny my role

As a human

Holding myself hostage

With no demands

It's better to burn

Quickly and bright

Than slowly and dull

Without a fight
