Cheated

For those that made it

Those that didnít

And those still hanging on by a thread
 

Timeís taken so much from me

That what I really want you to see

I traded long ago

I guess I sold my soul

For a chance to walk out the door

And not be stung by the past no more

But with you standing here

Mystery of twilight alive in the air

I really feel Iíve been cheated

Sold out
 

Iíd never lie to you

And Iíd never cheat you

And I canít believe what they want you to hear

The truth they couldnít tell you or baby they wouldnít dare
 

Sticks and stones and loverís lies

The truth was always in their eyes

Cast out on a stormy sea

But none of them could rescue me

Iím sick of hollow clones

With no meaning or feeling in their stolen tones

Iíll trust you here today

ĎCause, I believe you when say

You know what itís like to have been cheated

Sold out, out, out, they sold you out
 

Iíd never lie to you

And Iíd never cheat you

And I canít believe what they want you to hear

The truth they couldnít tell you or baby they wouldnít dare
