I'm Sick of Smiling
And so is my jaw
Can't you see my front is crumbling down?
I'm sick of being someone I'm not
Please get me out of this spot
I'm sick of clapping
When I know I can do it better for myself
I'm sick of waiting
Sick of all these words that will never matter
I'll wire these nerves together
Hoping for a chance to think on time
And I'm tracing over your letter
To see if your intentions are as good as mine
But you're getting worse
I swear it
It's hard to prove you're an understatement
You're getting worse and I know
That you'll be calling me again
I'm done with everything
That had to do with you
Don't worry your pictures are already burned
I'm done with new friends
Don't sell yourself short
You'll lose it in the end
I can't help how I feel

Giving applause versus receiving it. The singer has been influenced by others in their field of interest and have grown a bit disillusioned and want to try to make a name for themselves. Pick apart their flaws and weaknesses and go all out to create what they believe to be perfection. A clever and inspirational line.
