My whole life was just a joke
My whole life was just a joke
But I'm still not laughing

Truth is, I think I said enough
No lie, this shit is fake as fuck
I've seen death in my nightmares since I was young
I'm close to the edge, people tell me I should jump (go)
Some things cannot be undone
This the kind of shit that'll change you, son
Some days I wanna ask, "What for?"
They've been laughing at me since the day I was born

My whole life was just a joke
My whole life was just a joke
But I'm still not laughing

I guess the truth is hard to swallow
There must be something in your throat
Can someone say the reason?
There must be something I'm not seeing
Why'd you laugh?

Who could it be? Was it really me? (No)
Yes, in fact, my dignity's intact
While I listen to 'em laugh (haha)
Fuck that, try to get it how I get it
You could crack my neck with one snap

The whole world was in on it
Everybody started laughing
The whole world was in on it
Everybody started laughing
Don't try too hard
You're really fucking up
When you get torn apart
They really show no love
When you try too hard
Don't try to act like something
Don't take yourself so seriously

My whole life was just a joke
My whole life was just a joke
But I'm still not laughing

I guess the truth is hard to swallow
There must be something in your throat
Can someone say the reason?
There must be something I'm not seeing
Why'd you laugh?
