Who's to know if your soul will fade at all
The one you sold to fool the world
You lost your self-esteem along the way
Yeah

Good God you're coming up with reasons
Good God you're dragging it out
Good God it's the changing of the seasons
I feel so raped
So follow me down

And just fake it if you're out of direction
Fake it, if you don't belong here
Fake it, if you feel like infection
Woah you're such a fucking hypocrite

And who's to know that the lies wont hide your flaws
No sense in hiding all of yours
You gave up on your dreams along the way
Yeah

Good God you're coming up with reasons
Good God you're dragging it out
Good God it's the changing of the seasons
I feel so raped
So follow me down

And just fake it if you're out of direction
Fake it, if you don't belong here
Fake it, if you feel like infection
Woah you're such a fucking hypocrite

Whoah Whoah

I can fake with the best of anyone
I can fake with the best of 'em all
I can fake with the best of anyone
I can fake it all

Who's to know if your soul will fade at all
The one you sold to fool the world
You lost your self-esteem along the way
Yeah

Good God you're coming up with reasons
Good God you're dragging it out
Good God it's the changing of the seasons
I feel so raped
Man follow me down

And just fake it if you're out of direction
Fake it, if you don't belong here
Fake it, if you feel like infection
Woah you're such a fucking hypocrite

Fake it, if your out of direction
Fake it, if you don't belong here
Fake it, if you feel like infection
Woah your such a fucking hypocrite

    yea it's definitely criticizing it, it's a very cynical view on all the hypocrites and people out there who just fake their entire lives and hope nobody will notice..
    one way of looking at it is as well is to compare it with some of his other lyrics (eg. no jesus christ, plastic man, etc) alongside the whole amy-drama and her lyrics about him (eg. call me when you're sober, lithium, etc) and one could definitely say it seems like they're both bitching about each other in their albums hehe..

    ok WELL... hmm.. i think like, "dude, if you don't belong, fake it. no one will ever know," but i think the worst part is that you'll know.

    Shawn never wrote any songs directly towards Amy. He said that he was going to be the bigger man. With that this song is about people who want to be like a particular group so they fake it to get in.
