I change my colour for you
I shed my coat with caution
I lack the beauty you display
See here there are the bruises
And some were self-inflicted
And some showed up along the way
So I nod my head
I'm ready for the world to see
The secret I kept here inside the man you thought I'd be
Slip into coma calm
The coma where I calm myself down
Here comes excuses why I let you down

Stand by for another breakdown
Sound off the alarm
Is this the Chameleon Boy I swore I wouldn't become
Chameleon Boy
Chameleon Boy

So now we've come upon the hardest thing I've ever done
It's telling you that I'm a mess
What sort of mess I mean
Is self-destructive gasoline
The kind that strips you of your best
And while I play instead the way that most would end up dead
You sleep alone at home and wish that I were in our bed
With this I'm telling you
My colour changes back to blue
How do I ask you this
Will you help me through

Stand by for another breakdown
Sound off the alarm
Is this the Chameleon Boy I swore I wouldn't become
Stand by for another breakdown
Sound off the alarm
Is this the Chameleon Boy I swore I wouldn't become
Chameleon Boy
Chameleon Boy

I try to think of all the people I looked up to
While growing up who would I be
Now the twisted part
Where did all my idols end up
They all passed away
Passed away

Stand by
Its the Chameleon Boy
Stand by
Its the Chameleon Boy
Chameleon Boy
I'm Chameleon Boy...
Chameleon Boy...
