On three, let’s play pretend
You smile, I smile, everyone’s happy
Let’s take a snap of it, too, shall we? *click
Before we snap out of this fabricated “you + me”
You know what? Let’s put a caption, too, shall we?
a perfect world –
What a perfect lie, what twisted words
If only they could see just how cold you are to me
But you know what they say,
When in Rome, do what the Romans do
Play by the rules of this sick social loo
So we can get more of those cringe-worthy LIKES
Ugh, my stomach churns from these swallowed lies
Funny how our faces aren’t showing signs
‘Coz we both know well what this means,
So on three, again, let’s play pretend,
one, two, three, smile!
for Pete’s sake, smile, so everyone’s happy.
