I'm A Fake Lyrics - The Used

Review The Song (102)

Small, simple, safe price.
Rise the wake and carry me with all of my regrets.
This is not a small cut that scabs, and dries, and flakes, and heals.
And I am not afraid to die;
I'm not afraid to bleed and fuck and fight,
I want the pain of payment.
What's left, but a section of pygmy sized cuts.
Much like a slew of a thousand unwanted fucks.
Would you be my little cut?
Would you be my thousand fucks?
And make mark leaving space for the guilt to be liquid.
To fill and spill over and under my thoughts.
My sad, sorry, selfish cry out to the cutter.
I'm cutting trying to picture your black, broken heart.
Love is not like anything,
Especially a fucking knife!

Look at me.
You can tell,
By the way I move and do my hair,
Do you think that it's me?
Or it's not me?
I don't even care.
I'm alive, i don't smell
I'm the cleanest I have ever been.

I feel big, I feel tall, I feel dry.
Just look at me, look at me now.
I'm a fake, I'm a fake, I'm a fake, I'm a fake.
Just look at me, look at me now.
I'm a fake, I'm a fake, I'm a fake, I'm a fake.

Do I drink?
Do I date?
I've got perfect placements.
all my ink
Satisfied, in your eyes.
I'm the biggest fan I've got right now.
I made sure that I look how I wanted to look.
The people around me,
The people surround me.

I feel big, I feel tall, I feel dry.
Just look at me, look at me now.
I'm a fake, I'm a fake, I'm a fake, I'm a fake.
Just look at me, look at me now.
I'm a fake, I'm a fake, I'm a fake, I'm a fake.

Just look at me now.
I'm a fake, I'm a fake.
Just look at me now.
I'm a fake, I'm a fake.

My stomach hurts now,
And all tied off in lace.
I pray, beg for anything to hit me in the face.
And this sickness isn't me.
And I pray to fall from grace.
The last thing I see is feeling.

And I'm telling you I'm a fake,
I'm telling you I'm a fake.
I'm telling you I'm a fake.
I'm telling you I'm a fake.
I'm telling you I'm...

Just look at me, look at me now.
I'm a fake, I'm a fake, I'm a fake, I'm a fake.
Just look at me, look at me now.
I'm a fake, I'm a fake, I'm a fake, I'm a fake.

Just look at me now.
I'm a fake, I'm a fake.
Just look at me now.
I'm a fake, I'm a fake.

Genuine fake!!!

i am a grown adult now and since my emo days i've been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. when i was a kid, i used to listen to this song over and over, especially the beginning, i loved it so much! i just listened to it recently for the first time in a while and it is kinda scary how perfectly the lyrics capture the way it feels to look in the mirror and not feel like your thoughts and the thing staring back at you are the same entity. like cutting and observing yourself cutting at the same time, feeling like two split parts, with one of them needing pain and the other one not able to control it but still watching and thinking about it. bla bla sorry for gushing i just can't believe how good this song is.

ps i'm gonna be a purist and say there's no real question what this song is about. i hate self harm too. this song isn't pro-cutting and anyone who thinks that has probably never experienced those kinds of compulsions and will never understand.

I'm a fake | Reviewer: Nana | 8/4/12

I believe that the beauty of music is that each one of us gives the lyrics a meaning of our own I have been reading a couple of the reviews and I agree with all of you guys it can be about been sober or about been a cutter if that's the correct term...for me is more like even if I say I am who I am and I am not going to change for someone I do put on a mask in front of some people because I don't want to get hurt... I think this speaks about someone hiding his/her real self and getting tiered of it and saying the world this is not who I really am!!! .....in a more nonsense comment I FREAKING LOVE THE USED..

It doens't matter | Reviewer: M.Metaphor | 6/15/11

My opinion (which counts for ALL their songs) is just, we'll NEVER know the true meaning. Even if Bert says something, it doesn't HAVE to be THE TRUTH.
I write poems too, and I almost never exactly tell the truth about the meaning, just because I think people should see their own meaning in it. Maybe Bert meant alcohol, drugs, or even cutting. Or maybe he just felt a sertain way and tried to describethat as a metaphor (the poem)
Just like the whole point if it's either about Bert feeling fake, or sarcasic like him feeling 'real' and seeing everyone being fake. It just dosn't matter.
Music is about how YOU feel, what YOU think about it, and not just one fangirl obsession with 'the true meaning' like it's a fucking school test!

Great | Reviewer: Cody | 10/18/10

I know this song is about alchohol and all but it personally speaks to me on the litteral level of what it says. I'm and ex cutter. Iv struggled with depression for years and I felt fake because of the stereotypes but dry from depression. I picked up writing as my escape from cutting so the ink part fits perfect. I love the used and all their media.

Metalhead here | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/7/10

I'm a Metal-head, so i normally listen to things like "Trivium", "Iron Maiden", "Slayer" etc. etc.

I normally stick to my own Genre (Metal, Screamo etc.) but my friend showed me "All that I've got" by The Used a month or so ago, i don't know what it is about them that i love so much, but as soon as i heard them i felt something, i don't know, you as the reader probably don't even care, but there is not a single Used song i hate, and this is probably one of the bests, why i'm writing this i don't know

TL;DR - The Used are Awesome!

Question.....? | Reviewer: Diana | 6/14/10

In the quiet part after the chorus and before do I drink....there is someone saying something....I always thought it sounded like young stupid fucker....I`m probably wrong but if any of you hear it too and can figure out what is being said I would love to know :)

Blah blah RAWWR | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/5/10

yeah | Reviewer: cameron | 2/3/10

this song is definately about getting sober. the cutting part is just about how people like me who used to be on drugs, would always resort to the next best thing.. which in his case is cutting. thanks jesse for your comment, but yeah the meaning of this song is pretty clear.

This will clear it up. | Reviewer: Jesse | 11/6/09

Yes, songs should be interpreted how YOU would like to interpret them, but I met Bert once, after a concert, YES IT WAS AMAZING!!!!! lol, But I told him how this song reminded me of my mothers addiction and he said that that was exactly what it was about, because he struggles with alcoholism himself, He is constantly getting sober and relapsing(He didn't mention that specifically, but I knew that from being a fan) It was a song he wrote about being sober, feeling "dry," and how wrong it felt. As it usually does with alcoholics.

The Used | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/15/09

I agree that songs should be interpreted the way you want.. but sometimes it's interesting to know what the writer was thinking 'cause it might make more sence or things might fit together properly. I like to interpret them but if a writer has written a song like this you have to wonder if what they have to say could make it even better

Nyaahh | Reviewer: JenniPenni | 10/13/09

Songs can be determined in a number of different ways. I don't know what this song was meant to be about, but it sure as hell wasn't cutting. I think it's about how he grew up with everyone in his school, all the popular shit, scene shit, punk shit, nerd shit, goth shit. And he was like, "You're all like a buncha robots, plastic smiles and... fakes!" Because everyone's so wrapped up in their image. Everyone's.. FAKE! :D
Me loves Bert,
&&& Dan.

Wow | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/21/09

This song is pretty sick. Does anybody here realize the used doesn't need insane solos to make there songs sound as bad ass as they do??? That shows right there that they are truely talented artists! :D the used for life!

SHUT THE FUCK UP | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/12/09

This song is interpreted how ever the fuck you want it to be. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU?! If you believe it is about cutting then it is if you believe it is about something else then it is! How ever it makes you feel and what it makes you think is what it is about. Some people sing songs about love, some people who listen to it might think death! A song is however it makes you feel..Singers have their own reasons for writing songs but in the end why do you listen to it so much and how are you feeling when you listen to it? You will get your answer there. I am so sick of people arguing over a song and it's meaning...Songs are designed to have different meanings on different people. So stop trying to force your opinion about the song on other people. Just love the fucking song for Christ sake instead of ruining it!

MY OPINION | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/12/09

This song reminds me of my life as a cutter and how i tried to be all of these different types of people (stereotypes) And no matter who I was I was "a fake" It wasn't me...

Who knows maybe Bert had a cutting problem...In the song it says: "I've got perfect placements. All my ink." Most ex cutters resort to tattoos...

"I pray, beg for anything to hit me in the face. (help me see) And this sickness isn't me." "I'm a fake" This isn't me.

That is my interpretation of the song. I don't care what anyone thinks....Other people out there might have a different opinion but this is what the song means to me. Which is what a song is meant to do!
