"My Famous Lie"

Seems that I’m tied to a short leash
Everywhere I go I need my relief
It’s been the same for so long
Subject of many songs
I only make it by the skin of my teeth

But you need me
You shouldn’t believe me

I may have passed up opportunities
For once I’m standing on my own two feet
I’ve got my problems
Can’t fully solve them
My stomach’s empty and I’m incomplete

But you need me
You shouldn’t believe me

You despise me, criticize me
My famous lie
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know
