The Pretender – Foo Fighters!

Keep you in the dark
You know they all, pretend
Keep you in the dark
And so it all, began

Send in your skeletons
Sing as their bones go marching in, again
They need you buried deep
The secrets that you keep are ever ready
Are you ready?

I’m finished making sense
Done pleading ignorance
That old, defense
Spinning infinity boy
The wheel is spinning me
It’s never-ending, never-ending
Same old story

What if I say I’m not like the others?
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays?
You’re the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?

What if I say I’m not like the others?
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays?
You’re the pretender
What if I say that I never surrender?

In time or so I’m told
I’m just another soul for sale, oh well
The page is out of print
We are not permanent
We’re temporary, temporary
Same old story

What if I say I’m not like the others?
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays?
You’re the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?

What if I say I’m not like the others?
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays?
You’re the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?

I’m the voice inside your head you refuse to hear
I’m the face that you have to face mirroring your stare
I’m what’s left, I’m what’s right, I’m the enemy
I’m the hand that’ll take you down and bring you to your knees

So who are you?
Yeah who are you?
Yeah who are you?
Yeah who are you?

Keep you in the dark
You know they all, pretend

What if I say I’m not like the others?
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays?
You’re the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?

What if I say I’m not like the others?
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays?
You’re the pretender
What if I say that I’ll never surrender?

What if I say I’m not like the others?
(Keep you in the dark)
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays?
(You know they all)
You’re the pretender
(Pretend)
What if I say I will never surrender?

What if I say I’m not like the others?
(Keep you in the dark)
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays?
(You know they all)
You’re the pretender
(Pretend)
What if I say I will never surrender?

So who are you?
Yeah who are you?
Yeah who are you?
