Lyrics:

Drag me to death like a lit cigarette
Took my last breath, like the smoke from my lips
I’ve lied for you and I liked it too
But my knees are bruised from kneeling to you
I’ve had enough, but you’re too hard to quit
We’ve had our fun like sugar makes me sick
I’ve lied for you and I liked it too
But my make-up’s ruined

And now I’m laughing through my tears
I’m crying through my fear
But, baby, if I had to choose

The joke’s on you
The joke’s on you
Good news, I’ve tried to be kind
But, oh, I’ll just lay down and die
Wearin’ a fake smile
The joke’s on you

My heart’s gone bad, now it won’t beat for you
You’ve had your laugh, now I won’t play the fool
I’ve lied for you and I liked it too
But I’m black and blue from bleedin’ for you
You strike the match, burn me out so fast
Look at what we had, now it’s turned to ash
I’ve lied for you and I liked it too
But my make-up’s ruined

And now I’m laughing through my tears
I’m crying through my fear
But, baby, if I had to choose

The joke’s on you
The joke’s on you
Good news, I’ve tried to be kind
But, oh, I’ll just lay down and die
Wearin’ a fake smile
The joke’s on you
