Now I’m noticeably dumber than I was one year ago
and I would like to think it’s a better thing,
but I’d tell myself almost anything these days
It’s a little complicated—letting people down is a full time business
My shallow commitments surrounding me,
I snapped my cellphone to escape
Now somewhere in this town
there’s a lynch mob for me

Oh, charlatan me, I can’t control all these feelings (x2)
It’s getting hard to stand up straight

Now there’s strangers in the kitchen,
I’m dodging people like they’re bullets,
‘cos we’re not talking, we’re just practicing our smalltalk
And I’ve heard tips about saving face,
I gotta keep y’all thinking that I’m loving this place
I don’t mean to be crude, but
I can’t talk to you without a cigarette in my hand
as a crutch to hold me up
it’s my shield from all you

Oh, charlatan me, I can’t control all these feelings (x2)
Oh, charlatan me, you must be down all because of me
