All these lyrics are played over the following tablature line.

Verse 1:
Hey, I'm your life. I'm the one who takes you there.
Hey, I'm your life. I'm the one who cares.
They, they betray. I'm your only true friend now.
They, they'll betray. I'm forever there.

Verse 2:
You, you're my mask. You're my cover, my shelter.
You, you're my mask. You're the one who's blamed.
Do, do my work. Do my dirty work, scapegoat.
Do, do my deeds, for you're the one who's shamed.

Verse 3:
Hate, I'm your hate. I'm your hate when you want love.
Pay, pay the price. Pay, for nothing's fair.
Hey, I'm your life. I'm the one who took you there.
Hey, I'm your life. And I no longer care.
