Phonies in my world

I look all around me and see phonies.
I try to avoid them
But they keep coming at me with thier decieving eyes
Waiting for me to give in
I know thier tricks I know what they plan for me
I maybe paranoid
But I'm not crazy
I know you see them too..laughing at me
SmeRks full of triumph because they know you want to join them
I play nice though and I make sure they all think I like them
I smile when they smile
I talk when they talk
Wait a minute
What am I doing?!
I look all around me
I see those phonies by my side
Acting like my friends
I'm here making them my freinds
Wow...I'm one of them
