Evanescence – Everybody's Fool lyrics

Perfect by nature,
Icons of self indulgence,
Just what we all need,
More lies about a world that...

Never was and never will be
Have you no shame?
Don't you see me?
You know you've got everybody fooled

Look, here she comes now
Bow down and stare in wonder,
Oh how we love you,
No flaws when you're pretending
But now I know she...

Never was and never will be
You don't know how you've betrayed me,
And somehow you've got everybody fooled.

Without the mask where will you hide?
Can't find yourself lost in your lies

I know the truth now,
I know who you are,
And I don't love you anymore!

It never was and never will be,
You don't know how you've betrayed me,
And somehow you've got everybody fooled,

It never was and never will be!
You're not real and you can't save me!
And somehow now you're everybody's fool!

    She's famous, maybe a model or an actress. She doesn't want to be that person anymore. She doesn't want to be a victim of society's standards, she wants to be more than just a pretty face. She feels like it's all a lie, like it isn't the real her, and she just wants to be able to be who she really is for once.

    I can totally relate to this song! I listen to it a lot and it reminds me of me how I let everyone change me and infulence me into doing things I don't wanna do but I do anyway. I know its bad but sooner or later I'm gonna have to step up and take control of my life. Amy Lee has such a great voice and she is like my role model because I feel like she went through the things I am currently going through right now in my life.

    I believe shes angry because most people in the music business consider it as selling their soul. I believe she was tricked somehow and shes angry about it but saddened by regret & she feels betrayed by it. Its seems she beats herself up for it. I think theirs more than meets the eye behind this honestly. I haven't quite figured it all out but now it seems its starting to become clear.
