<poem>
I don't understand why joy must be feigned
+
She thinks I'm iron man that I don't feel pain
I'm so fortunate yet filled with self hate
+
I don't understand why joy must be feigned
That the mirror shows me an ingrate
+
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 the 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 (to burn) quickly and bright
 
Than slowly and dull (and dull) without a fight
 
 
Well I know, hmmmm
 
That my world is coming down, hmmmm, hmmmm
 
Now I know, I know
 
I'm the one that brought it down
 
Brought it down
 
Yeah, Bring it on down
 
 
Well I know
 
That my world is coming down
 
Yeah I know, I know
 
I'm the one who brought it down
 
Brought it down
 
 
Well 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
 
 
[Incomprehensible]
 
 
Well I know
 
That my world is coming down
 
Yeah I know, I know
 
I'm the one who brought it down

Lyrics Edit

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 the 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 (to burn) quickly and bright
Than slowly and dull (and dull) without a fight

Well I know, hmmmm
That my world is coming down, hmmmm, hmmmm
Now I know, I know
I'm the one that brought it down
Brought it down
Yeah, Bring it on down

Well I know
That my world is coming down
Yeah I know, I know
I'm the one who brought it down
Brought it down

Well 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

[Incomprehensible]

Well 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
