Fake skin, make it any color that you like.
Fake hair, bangs down, blow 'em out of your eyes.
Face time, waste time, 'cause the face isn't real.
Tell me how do you feel if you're plastic?
Fake lips, this kiss, only superficial.
Fake tear stains, everything is artificial.
Make up, wake up, you were only a dream,
A cold sweat, and a scream.

Miss Information,
Can you tell me what you are?
Stick the knife in
Deeper than a human heart.
Feed the meter to beat the reaper.
You're a keeper; got my money's worth

You are a replicant
It takes one to know one:
Half alive and dead inside.
Do you believe you're human?
We're only replicants--
Our flesh is warm, our hearts are cold.
We hate, we need, we sate our greed,
So maybe we are human after all.

False eyelash, better never cry again.
Fake laugh, fake smile just to try to fit in
Whispers, blisters, there's a chip in the paint
If I peel it away, does the paint run?
Fake portrait, was it ever really you?
Fake nails on the chalkboard tearing through.
Say who made you turn out this way.
Why are you so afraid?
