I became what I pretended to be - it was effortless
And everyone forgave me, accepted and believed in me
I can fool aristocracy, I can fool the underclass
I can get you to dress like me
I don't even have to ask
I didn't know it would be this way
But now I'm here there will be hell to pay -

Let's pretend

I have played fake so well that I have now become real

So now I am simply a caricature
But I carry so much weight
I'm measured, powerful and sure
You can't decide my fate
Treadmills, planes and golfing spots
Like Pacman gobbling up the dots
The sirens in the scenery
They all seem dumb and mute to me

I have played fake so well that I have now become real

And now I come to you as a friend
With my arsenal of lies
Validation on the news-stands
With a blank look in my eyes

They love me cos I'm ugly
They love me cos I'm rich
They love me cos I'm dying
And they love me when I bitch

Lets pretend

I have played fake so well that I have now become real
