Subtitle: "Your Fave Is Problematic"
This song is about the inevitable moment when you first learn that one of your heroes isn't an infallible paragon of virtue.

lyrics

Live your life, live without concern
For those who’d love you
Twist the knife, I feel my stomach churn
All because you

Fool me once, the ceiling starts to drop
The friend I thought I knew was just a prop
Your indiscretions set signals afire
Our need to trust, it’s making us all liars

I saw your monuments toppled in the streets
That wasn’t even close to just
I saw you shrug off your defeat
You never said you were someone to trust

You got everything you want

Fool me once, iit all starts coming apart
Why do we keep breaking our own hearts?

Surely wouldn’t want my soul
beneath this microscope
Where the moment you spot the truth
Is when you start losing hope
You saved my life and set me right
That’s the story that will prevail
Deserved or not, we’ll forgive
This first betrayal

Fool me once, the ceiling starts to drop
The friend I thought I knew was just a prop
Fool me once it all starts coming apart
Why do we keep breaking our own hearts?

You’ll get everythning you want
