Neil, you’ve lost your touch
At the worst moment
In your parents’ room
Where you turned the TV on

Static was the sound
But you had the feeling
Everybody’s world came to life
But your own

Cheated on a girl
Who you said deserved it
She left you one night
All alone in the dark

Everybody shows
But they leave short after
Cuz no one really thinks
You’re a victim anymore

All the girls in the crowd
They know your secrets now
Bury them, but you’ll never bury what
Will always surface
Dream of the yesterdays
When you rocked this stage
Bury them, but you’ll never bury
What will always surface

Neil, you came to life
At your worst moment
Reality, she came
Like a knife right in the back

Lost a hundred pounds
But you gained Denial
The most devoted friend
That a boy could ever have

Your life is cardboard
And it’s falling down
I know it hurts but
You’ve done this to yourself

All the girls in the crowd
They know your secrets now
Bury them, but you’ll never bury what
Will always surface
Dream of the yesterdays
When you rocked this stage
Bury them, but you’ll never bury
What will always surface

Neil, you lost your face
In a masquerade
Twirling down the stage
Of the lies you gave
All the other girls
Well, they leave short after
You, you…

Hey, Neil:
I know you act so butthurt, buddy
Like you didn’t lie and cheat
To everyone who ever gave you the time of day
Well, just keep disappearing, kid
Cuz this crowd, they’ll sing along!

All the girls in the crowd
They know your secrets now
Bury them, but you’ll never bury what
Will always surface
Dream of the yesterdays
When you rocked this stage
Bury them, but you’ll never bury
What will always surface
Always surface
