Barbie Believers

It doesnt pay to be miserable
But its better than falsity
I'd rather be real to you 
Than plasterize all fake-like and 
pretty

And you know we've hit the saddest 
point 
When churches play charades the 
best
Acting like we've got it together
When dressed deep down in a mess

Ha, we screw over even ourselves
Proving that we don't need to rely
Even when our world is crumbling 
Calling for help doesn't seem to 
comply

So here's to all the fakers
The actors, and the masks
Cause who wouldn't want to accept 
Jesus
In a church full of plastics
