Lyrics

[Verse 1]
The air I breathe is the same as you
I'd like to know what's true
Your heart and your mind controlling you
Or is it the fact that your bones are blue?
And why is your face so pale?
You say my name, your lungs exhale
And you sigh in regret to what we had
I didn't know I made you so mad

[Chorus]
Why are you afraid of me for being interesting?
I'm confused by the things you say
Why are you so vague?
Don't tell me who to be
I'm not like you but you're just like me
Quit making a fool
Who the hell are you? Your bones are blue too

[Verse 2]
Now look at you, your grin so big
You saw me fall off that cliff
Facade melts off when I look at you
You're glamored up but your bones are blue
And I tried and tried to prove you're wrong
I know you'll feel that in this song
I'm looking through that diamond skin
And all I see is an evil grin

[Chorus]
Why are you afraid of me for being interesting?
I'm confused by the things you say
Why are you so vague?
Don't tell me who to be
I'm not like you but you're just like me
Quit making a fool
Who the hell are you? Your bones are blue too

[Chorus]
Why are you afraid of me for being interesting?
I'm confused by the things you say
Why are you so vague?
Don't tell me who to be
I'm not like you but you're just like me
Quit making a fool
Who the hell are you? Your bones are blue too

[Verse 1]
The air I breathe is the same as you
I'd like to know what's true
Your heart and your mind controlling you
Or is it the fact that your bones are blue?
And why is your face so pale?
You say my name, your lungs exhale
And you sigh in regret to what we had
I didn't know I made you so mad

[Chorus]
Why are you afraid of me for being interesting?
I'm confused by the things you say
Why are you so vague?
Don't tell me who to be
I'm not like you but you're just like me
Quit making a fool
Who the hell are you? Your bones are blue too

[Verse 2]
Now look at you, your grin so big
When you saw me fall off that cliff
Facade melts off when I look at you
You're glamored up but your bones are blue
And I tried and tried to prove you're wrong
I know you'll feel that in this song
I'm looking through that diamond skin
And all I see is an evil grin

[Chorus]
Why are you afraid of me for being interesting?
I'm confused by the things you say
Why are you so vague?
Don't tell me who to be
I'm not like you but you're just like me
Quit making a fool
Who the hell are you? Your bones are blue too

[Chorus]
Why are you afraid of me for being interesting?
I'm confused by the things you say

Don't tell me who to be
