lyrics

This is the downfall, it's so steep
So steep
Never thought that it'd go this deep
This deep
Why is this happening, please tell me
Please tell me
I don't understand, can you help me
Can you help me
This is the downfall, it's so steep
So steep
Never thought that it'd go this deep
This deep
Why is this happening, please tell me
Please tell me
I don't understand, can you help me
Can you help me

Meet me, I'm hot, on the top and on the throne
Livin' my life as if I was emperor of Rome
Had friends, had wealth, had fame, I had it all
Then shit hit the fan and I began to fall
It wasn't much, few losses but the feelin’ crept
I began to wonder if it's me or someone else
But of course, I denied it, thought I was fine
But you know delusion, that shit messes with your mind
My numbers went down, my friends faded away
Yet I didn't care, I didn't need them anyway
It never got better, it kept on getting worse
And my ego justified it, I guess that is my curse
I'm always all alone, suck in the same situation
Insinuatin’ to the point where I was simply hatin’
Makes me wonder if I myself am the problem
It's like I'm in my own world and it keeps revolvin’
It won't stop

This is the downfall, it's so steep
So steep
Never thought that it'd go this deep
This deep
Why is this happening, please tell me
Please tell me
I don't understand, can you help me
Can you help me
This is the downfall, it's so steep
So steep
Never thought that it'd go this deep
This deep
Why is this happening, please tell me
Please tell me
I don't understand, can you help me
Can you help me

I have to wonder if things would of been the same
If I had a brain and used it to play the game
But alas, there's no difference cause I still got fame
I wonder why people be puttin’ worth into my name
All I do is stupid shit, feed into my own fantasies
They all laugh at me but treat me as if I'm Hannity
I sold dirt from my house for a million a pop
I treat people like trash and they treat me like God
Everybody wishes they did things differently
And if I had wisdom, then I could truly see
The damage that I've caused, how I am such a fraud
I should of taken a pause and known my logic was flawed
I'm getting paid everyday but it's not the same
I should of opened my eyes cause ignorance is pain
I should be ashamed at the things that I did
But I'm obsessed with the power and control of this here biz
And I was just a kid

This goes out to all the people out there who famous because they brainless
I don't know why it came down to this
Maybe people stopped givin' a shit, you know
There's not a lot of sane intellectuals out there
People don't care
And I'm scared you know?
If this whole thing goes down the drain, it'll be a shame
And I'm tired of livin' in pain
So you better use your brain or face the consequences, you know

This is the downfall, it's so steep
So steep
Never thought that it'd go this deep
This deep
Why is this happening, please tell me
Please tell me
I don't understand, can you help me
Can you help me
This is the downfall, it's so steep
So steep
Never thought that it'd go this deep
This deep
Why is this happening, please tell me
Please tell me
I don't understand, can you help me
Can you help me
