lyrics

jonny's an impostor
and he's leaving
been hiding here day after day
making believing

jonny's not a character
in somebody's story
he's tired of your talk
and your bullshit glory

this isn't his life
this isn't what asked for
it isn't what he wanted
it wasn't what he is

no, jonny's an impostor
and he's leaving
been hiding here day after day
making believing

and when those kids knocked him down
he fell hard to the ground
he lost a piece
released to that terrible sound

and his head went away
to some glorious day
he took of his shirt
with his world full of hurt
he was two heartbeats
two heartbeats away

(instrumental)

and jonny's angry with jesus
just like he's always been
this infallible thing you've mistaken for king
infatuated with sin

yeah he's angry with jesus
and i guess he will be for life
i give mine to the meek
with my brusied other cheek
under the knife

jonny's an impostor
and he's leaving
been hiding here day after day
making believing

jonny's not a character
in somebody's story
he's tired of your talk
and your bullshit glory
