I'm your Opheliac, I've been so disillusioned
I know you'd take me back but still I feign confusion
I couldn't be your friend, my world was too unstable
You might have seen the end but you were never able
To keep me breathing as the water rises up again before I slip away

You know the games I play and the words I say
When I want my own way
You know the lies I tell when you've gone through hell
And I say I can't stay

You know how hard it can be to keep believing in me
When everything and everyone becomes my enemy
And when there's nothing more you can do I'm gonna blame it on you
It's not the way I want to be, I only hope that in the end you will see
It's the Opheliac in me, it's the Opheliac in me

I'm your Opheliac, my stockings prove my virtues
I'm open to attack but I don't want to hurt you
Whether I swim or sink that's no concern of yours now
How could you possibly think, you had the power to know how
To keep me breathing as the water rises up again before I slip away

You know the games I play and the words I say
When I want my own way
You know the lies I tell when you've gone through hell
And I say I can't stay

You know how hard it can be to keep believing in me
When everything and everyone becomes my enemy
And when there's nothing more you can do I'm gonna blame it on you
It's not the way I want to be, I only hope that in the end you will see
It's the Opheliac in me, it's the Opheliac in me

Studies show, intelligent girls are more depressed
'Cause they know what the world is really like, don't think for a beat
It makes it better when you sit her down and tell her
Everything gonna be all right, she knows in society
She either is a devil or an angel with no in between
She speaks in the third person so she can forget that she's me

Doubt thou the stars are fire, doubt thou the sun doth move
Doubt truth to be a liar but never doubt
Doubt thou the stars are fire, doubt thou the sun doth move
Doubt truth to be a liar but never doubt
Doubt thou the stars are fire, doubt thou the sun doth move
Doubt truth to be a liar but never doubt, I love

You know the games I play and the words I say
When I want my own way
You know the lies I tell when you've gone through hell
And I say I can't stay

You know how hard it can be to keep believing in me
When everything and everyone becomes my enemy
And when there's nothing more you can do I'm gonna blame it on you
It's not the way I want to be, I only hope that in the end you will see
But never doubt

You know the games I play and the words I say
When I want my own way
You know the lies I tell when you've gone through hell
And I say I can't stay

You know how hard it can be to keep believing in me
When everything and everyone becomes my enemy
And when there's nothing more you can do I'm gonna blame it on you
It's not the way I want to be, I only hope that in the end you will see
