Cup of Make Believe

I have squandered youth
In vain pursuits

In buying lies
And selling truth

I have poisoned love
With one drop too much

But one thousand more
Is not near enough

Filled my cup with make believe
I sipped sweet lies to the lees

I abandoned life
To crawl towards death

My heart still beats
With nothing left

Baby live your dreams
You're still my queen

The judge's hammer
Will fall on me

I've been holding onto memories
You're song still plays inside of me

Empty cup of make believe
Precious years you've stolen from me
