When the one thing in your life comes crashin'
What you gonna do?
When naievety was my energy
Like power was you tool
And you broke me down like diamonds
Turned my blood to rust
Abuser of an innocence
Your real love was lust

Cos you had to be something
Be someone
And play, play, play, play games with heads
Got the chill when you passed go
All you wanted was control
You had me like a remote

Be someone
Cos you had to be something

And here are the terms on which you'll live:
I'll hate who I want, and I'll give when I give
And just because you're insecure
Doesn't mean you couldn't be pure

Doesn't mean you couldn't be pure
One lie for one lie
And you let it go so soon
And now I bet you're happy
Always at the back of my mind

Be someone
You had to be something
And here are the terms on which you'll live:
I'll hate who I want, and I'll give when I give

And just because you're insecure
Doesn't mean you couldn't be pureDoesn't mean you couldn't be pure
Doesn't mean you couldn't be pure
Doesn't mean you couldn't be pure
