lyrics

The words you tell reveal the lies,
Beneath the shell of your disguise,
Your empty sycophantic ways,
Are vacant infantile displays,
You’re afraid,
That the world will see,
You’re a fake,
So you try to keep,
Within the walls of your façade,
And never show them who you are,

I see you smile but know inside it’s all so hollow,
I don’t know why but all the while you’re just so shallow

You play your cards close to your chest,
You keep your guard with honest pretext,
You think you’re right, but know that you’re wrong,
And it’s all self-defence,
You hide behind this masquerade,
And play your part in life’s charade,
You’re in so deep; you’re in so far,
You can’t remember who you are

I see you smile but know inside it’s all so hollow,
I don’t know why but all the while you’re just so shallow,
You’re frightened; you’re lost somewhere in your disease,
You’re hiding, this mask only lies and deceives.
