When I was younger I thought the world circled around me
But in time I realized I was wrong
My immortal thoughts turned into just dreams of a dead future
It was a tragic case of my reality

Do you think you're indestructible
And no one can touch you
Well I think you're disposable
And it's time you knew the truth...

'Cause it's just one of my lies!
Well, it's just one of my lies
And all I wanted to was get real high
Well, it's just one of my lies

Why does my life have to be so small?
Yet death is forever
And does forever have a life to call it's own?
Don't give me an answer 'cause you
Only know as much as I know
Unless you're been there once
Well I hardly think so

Do you think you're indestructible
And no one can touch you
Well I think you're disposable
And it's time you knew the truth...

'Cause it's just one of my lies!
Well, it's just one of my lies
And all I wanted to was get real high
Well, it's just one of my lies

I used to pray all night
Before I lay myself down
My mother said it was right
Her mother said it too...
Why?
