Pt. 1: Perception

lyrics

If I can't have what I want,
I guess I'll take the runner up
'cause with this game of "all or nothing",
I'm through
So when I lie and say I want no one else
I'll keep the truth to myself,
Or I'll be left alone
And you’ll feel used


So I'm just an actor in your play
So I won't be the rain on your parade

I know you have to pretend
Like all of this will never end
Just to continue
To prove

That there's a love that exist
Where all your flaws vanish
But your love’s just a blindfold
You named the truth

So I'm just an actor in your play
So I won't be the rain on your parade

And if you want to lie to yourself
I'll join in like everyone else
'cause I know you'll take happiness over the truth
But for me, I face facts
I take the options that I have
And right now I've got nothing to lose

-And neither do you
So we've got nothing to lose

I thought I just had no luck
Then I learned to just shut up
And let you fill in silence
With your ruse

It seemed to make us happy enough
Not that you notice what I really want
Or you'd see you're just all I have
Not what I choose

So I'm just an actor in your play
So I won't be the rain on your parade
I'll go where I'm welcome
And if I'm welcome to stay
I'll play by your rules
And I'll stay in my cage
