King Midas (Dallas, Texas)
Got caught up in your glory once again
Still shrouded by this coat of immortal sin
Playing shallow games I cannot win
But I'm still pretending every thing's okay
I've had my dreams broken along this road
I'm left a lonely man with nothing left to show
I want to tell you things but you just don't want to know
I guess I'll sit back and pretend that every thing's okay
I watch you as you waste your life away
I see you as you regret your every day
I wish things would have stayed the same
And then I wouldn't have to pretend that every thing's okay
I've heard all these words before
From the same credible source
When it rains, it always seems to pour
But when I'm drowning I'll still pretend that every thing's okay
If I finally dissapeared
Would your soul become consumed in fear?
Would you wallow in your tears?
Or would you stay calm and pretend that every thing's okay?
What if if finally walked away?
How could you live with yourself that day?
When I have nothing left to say
When I have nothing to do but pretend every thing's okay.
I'm always pretending that every thing's okay.
