or
The Academy Is...

Don't be so scared, we will not lead you on like you've been doing for weeks.
So you're selfish, and I'm sorry.
When I'm gone you'll be going nowhere fast.

[Chorus:]
Would you believe me if I said I didn't need you,
'cause I wouldn't believe you if you said the same to me.
Near death, last breath, and barely hanging on.
Would you believe me if I said I didn't need you?

Don't be scared to take a second for reflection,
to take a leave of absence, see what you're made of.
So I'm selfish, and you're sorry.
When I'm gone you'll be going nowhere fast.
So who's selfish, and who's sorry?

[Chorus]

Someone, somewhere said some things that may have sparked some sympathy, but don't believe.
Don't believe a word you've heard about me.
Don't be so scared. It's harder for me.

[Chorus]

Someone, somewhere said some things that may have sparked some sympathy, but don't believe.
Don't believe a word you've heard.
