Lyrics

You're sure proud of the way you smile
Letting no one know that you crawled for miles to fake it
to temporarily cope
Now you're lying, alone in your party dress
with your friends all gone like your consciousness and shame
You're floating farther away

If you had it made
Why do you need escape from this?
If you have it made
Why do you run away from this?

You learned to burry your conscience in the wishing well
and never whisper it's name or recall how you felt that day
You swear that you felt nothin'
You put a bag on its head and a pill in your throat
tied a block 'round it's neck so the corpse wouldn't float away
You finally feel nothing

If you had it made
Why do you need escape from this?
If you have it made
Why do you run away from this?

You used to smile so much wider than the rest of us
I guess it turns out the higher hide better than the best of us
You never learned to get out of your own way
some things don't change
Some things never change

Now your momma and dad are scraping up their knees
Praying heaven above will give their baby peace of mind
