Oh, it's time to let it go
The world's got a funny way of turning 'round on you
When a friend tries to stab you right in the face
Losing faith in everything I thought I hoped I knew
Don't sweat it, it's set on false pretense

Betrayed but not gonna be willing to change
And it doesn't seem likely to fade
Betrayed but not gonna be willing to change
Cu-cu-cu-'cause you know...
It's sacrifice

False pretense you'll learn again
Stop pretending don't deny it
False pretense you'll learn again

All along you know you thought you got the best of me
You were wrong and I'm laughing right in your face
I cannot believe you claimed you were my family

Don't sweat it
It's set on false pretense
Betrayed but not gonna be willing to change
And it doesn't seem likely to fade
Betrayed but not gonna be willing to change
Cu-cu-cu-'cause you know...
It's sacrifice

False pretense you'll learn again
Stop pretending don't deny it
False pretense you'll learn again

Guitar.

Oh, it's time to let it go

I can't seem to understand it how you turned out to be so cold

You tried but were caught red handed, are you happy with your role?
It's funny to me how you've turned into such a joke...
It's sacrifice

False pretense you'll learn again
Stop pretending don't deny it
False pretense you'll learn again
So play the game until you run out
And play the game into my hand
