I smile and laugh

Like normal people do

But way down deep inside

I'm just as dull as you

I make smart remarks

And cry about things too

But just below the surface

I'm just as hurt as you

Nothing but a fraud

Nothing but a shell to walk amongst the living

Nothing but a ghost of the man I could be

Nothing more than a fraud, nothing more than me

I play all the games

That you expect me to

But back behind my smiles

I'm just as sad as you

I run around in circles

Just because you tell me to

But underneath it all

I'm just as sick as you

Nothing but a fraud

Nothing but a shell to walk amongst the living

Nothing but a ghost of the man I could be

Nothing more than a fraud, nothing more than me

Maybe I'll just run away and lock the door to my inner walls

Maybe I'll just keep on hiding cuz if I stop I'm sure to fall

Maybe I'll just quit now and give up all there is to hope for

Maybe I'll just endlessly sleep because there's nothing left to live for

Nothing but a fraud

Nothing but a shell to walk amongst the living

Nothing but a ghost of the man I could be

Nothing more than a fraud, nothing more than me
