Forced to Believe

things have become clear to me
things I hoped to never know or see
things that I’m forced to believe
by recordings and photography
you’ve attached yourself to that scene
where nothing is as it seems
where the life you lead is just a dream
with no basis in reality
and you say you won’t come down
because you’re scared that you would drown
fine, stay up there
I don’t want you down here
and if it’s alright with you
then it’s alright with me
if that’s what I’m forced to believe

now you want me to be like you
and I want you to be like me
this is taking more energy
than I’m willing to spend
you’re looking for the next parade
you told me that you were ok
I’ve already said what I wanted to say
but I’ll say it again
I thought that we were friends
I misunderstood what that meant
I never want to see you again
how’s that for friends?
if it’s alright with you
then it’s alright with me
if that’s what I’m forced to believe

forced to believe it doesn’t matter what I think
what matters is what I’m forced to believe
forced to believe could be anything
could be anything you’re forced to believe
never gonna see you again
never gonna see you again
never gonna see you again
never gonna see you again
my best friend
