She thinks I'm iron man that I don't feel pain
I don't understand why joy must be feigned
I'm so fortunate yet filled with self hate
That the mirror shows - me an ingrate

I could easily start pointing fingers
Since the blame is mine it always lingers
That the truth it lies in my reflection
Though this can't go on - there's no question

Yeah I know
That my world is coming down
Yeah I know - I know - I'm the one who brought it down - brought it down - bring it on down

How quickly pass the days - long is night
Lying in bed - awake - bathed in starlight
Better to live - as king - of beasts
Than as a lamb - scared - and weak

I will deny - my role - as - a human
Holding myself - hostage - with no - demands
It's better to burn - quickly - and bright
Than slowly and dull - without - a fight

Well - I know - mmm - that my world is coming down - mmm - mmm
Now I know - I know - I'm the one that brought it down - brought it down - bring it on down

I know - that my world is coming down
Yeah I know - I know - I'm the one who brought it down - brought it down
Yeah I know - and my world is coming down
Yeah I know - I know - I'm the one who brought it down - brought it down - bring it on down

Ooh - wahhh - ooh - wahhh - ooh - wahhh - oooooooooah
I know - that my world is coming down
Yeah I know I know - I'm the one who brought down - brought it down - bring it on down

Ooh - wahhh - ooh - wahhh - ooh - wahhh - oooooooooah
Ooh - wahhh - ooh - wahhh - ooh - wahhh - oooooooooah
Ooh - wahhh - ooh - wahhh - ooh - wahhh - oooooooooah - ooh wahh
