Oliver Tree – Joke’s On You!


My whole life was just a joke (Yuh)
My whole life was just a joke, but I’m still not laughing

Truth is, I think I said enough
No love, this shit is fake as fuck
I’ve seen death in my nightmares since I was young
I’m close to the edge, people tell me I should jump (Go!)
Somethings cannot be undone
This the kind of shit that’ll change you, son
Some days I want to ask what for
They’ve been laughing at me since the day I was born

My whole life was just a joke (Yuh)
My whole life was just a joke, but I’m still not laughing
I guess the truth is hard to swallow
There must be something in your throat
Can someone say the reason
There must be something I’m not seeing
Why’d you lie?

Who could it be? Was it really me?
Yes, in fact, my dignity’s intact
While I listen to ’em laugh (Haha)
Fuck that, try to get it how I get it
You could crack my neck with one snap

The whole world was in on it, everybody started laughing
The whole world was in on it, everybody started laughing
Don’t try too hard
You’re really fucking up when you get torn apart
They really show no love when you try too hard
Don’t try to act like something
Don’t take yourself so seriously

My whole life was just a joke (Yuh)
My whole life was just a joke, but I’m still not laughing
I guess the truth is hard to swallow
There must be something in your throat
Can someone say the reason
There must be something I’m not seeing
Why’d you lie?
