You will find that some of the most exquisite eyes
Mask the cruellest secrets
A villainess in a goddess disguise
I grew to easily distinguish your lies
Your glossy, sincere smile, always too eager to please

Everything good, everything hopeful that you ever said
An obvious falsity, another loss of innocence
The only truths you’d rarely let escape
Horrifying enough to chill even the most shadowed soul
You fucked up everybody’s life you touched
How’s that for an accomplishment?
“Surprise! I made you this exclusive key to my closet.”
Well I never asked to see your skeletons.

How many crimes did you commit, guiltless and without mercy
Before you realized you longed to be caught?
In a way, I think you knew your secrets
Would break me and I’d confess for you
If you had played this desperate game more cunningly

Everything good, everything hopeful that you ever said
An obvious falsity, another loss of innocence
The only truths you’d rarely let escape
Horrifying enough to chill even the most shadowed soul
You fucked up everybody’s life you touched
How’s that for an accomplishment?
“Surprise! I made you this exclusive key to my closet.”
Well I never asked to see your skeletons.

I could have been your prisoner, your protйgй, or your slave
But you succumbed to jealousy, an imaginary rivalry
You’d never admit it, who could possibly rival a queen?
But that’s not at all what I mean

I’d never pit myself against you
You’re right I’m sick with terror
At the thought of being compared to you
But not because I think I’d lose

My one worst fear
Is to become anything like you.
