The Pretender
Foo Fighters Lyrics


Keep you in the dark
You know they all pretend
Keep you in the dark
And so it all began

Send in your skeletons
Sing as their bones go marching in, again
The need you buried deep
The secrets that you keep are ever ready
Are you ready?
I'm finished making sense
Done pleading ignorance
That whole defense

Spinning infinity, boy
The wheel is spinning me
It's never-ending, never-ending
Same old story

What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say that I'll never surrender?

In time our soul untold
I'm just another soul for sale, oh well
The page is out of print
We are not permanent
We're temporary, temporary
Same old story

What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say that I'll never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?

I'm the voice inside your head
You refuse to hear
Yeah, I'm the face that you have to face
Mirrored in your stare
I'm what's left, I'm what's right
I'm the enemy
I'm the hand that will take you down
Bring you to your knees

So who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?

Keep you in the dark
You know they all pretend

What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender?
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?
You're the pretender
What if I say that I'll never surrender?

What if I say I'm not like the others? (Keep you in the dark)
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays? (You know they all pretend)
You're the pretender (who dares)
What if I say I will never surrender?

What if I say I'm not like the others? (keep you in the dark)
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays? (You know they all pretend)
You're the pretender (who dares)
What if I say I will never surrender?

So who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?

Анна Демьянова

Брошенный под лёд чужих притворств, ты жил
Опьянённый сладким ядом грёз и лжи
В твоём шкафу закрыт
Надёжно спрятанный в углу скелет
Готов ли ты пройти
По этому пути?
Готов ли ты узнать ответы?
Прости, но я устал
Ты видишь, что со мной и кем я стал
Это порочный круг
Ласкающий твой слух
И вновь, и снова, вновь и снова
Всё не ново!
Но что, если я скажу: "Надоело"?
Что, если я отвергну всю твою ложь?
Скажу о чём наболело
Что, если я – я дошёл до предела?
Что, если я скажу: "Надоело"?
Что, если я отвергну всю твою ложь?
Скажу о чём наболело
Что, если я – я дошёл до предела?
Они твердят для нас
Что у любого есть своя цена
Это сплошная пыль
Хозяева судьбы лишь ты и время, ты и время
Наше время!
Но что, если я скажу: "Надоело"?
Что, если я отвергну всю твою ложь?
Скажу о чём наболело
Что, если я – я дошёл до предела?
Что, если я скажу: "Надоело"?
Что, если я отвергну всю твою ложь?
Скажу о чём наболело
Что, если я – я дошёл до предела?
Я твой голос изнутри, что ты пытался скрыть
Отражение, что ты так хочешь позабыть
Я лишь тень, я твой drug, я твой лютый враг
Я твоя ладонь, что превращается в кулак
А ты? Кто ты?
А ты? Кто ты?
А ты? Кто ты?
Кто ты?
Брошенный под лёд чужих притворств и лжи
Но что, если я скажу: "Надоело"?
Что, если я отвергну всю твою ложь?
Скажу о чём наболело
Что, если я – я дошёл до предела?
Что, если я скажу: "Надоело"?
Что, если я отвергну всю твою ложь?
Скажу о чём наболело
Что, если я – я дошёл до предела?
(Брошенный под лёд чужих притворств и лжи
Опьянённый сладким ядом грёз и лжи)
А ты? Кто ты?
Кто ты?
Кто ты?
Кто ты?
Кто ты?

So thankful for this awesome song. I'll be gone soon (when my kidneys fail completely), but what am I listening to in the meantime? This song. Screaming out the lyrics right along with Dave. Because I'm still here now, and I still have a voice, and I will also never surrender. Not until it's my time.

Always loved this song; never knew it would become my anthem in my final days. Thanks, Dave.

Marco Mojica

Shall we sing it to the top of our lungs in the afterlife my friend! Keep Rocking my friend!

@Marina M. See you on the other side! 07
