As if I din’t know better

As if I didn’t know better

I play along

I sing their song

But deep inside of me

There’s the way I want to be

The way I am

Like the pearl within the clam

A long road ahead

The one we walk until we’re dead

That moment when we know

That all that is for show

Has no further purpose

If you never go beyond the surface

As if I didn’t know better

I repeat their mistakes

I raise the stakes

And more gets lost

Because love is the cost

A heart made of ice

Is an expensive sacrifice

So I turn back around

And put my feet on the ground

One foot at a time

I take back my crime

Only to find

The greatness left behind

As if I didn’t know better

I play the game

Pretending its all for fame

I join the fools

And play by their rules

But once all of that is gone

And all mistakes have been done

I throw away the trophies on the shelf

And retrieve back into myself

Where it safe for me to be

And from my eyes I can now see

That true dreams don’t shatter

And false ones don’t matter
