You try so hard to be someone you want to be, that you don't realize that when you create this new 'you' you are not really you, but just hiding behind a lie.

A slip of the wrist and a new face is on,

A face that covers up who you are,

It grips and sucks you in,

Before you know it, you're someone new,

Sucked in to a world of fakes,

Not realizing that's what the mask makes,

No longer yourself, not who you used to be,

Just someone lost in oblivity,

Just a mask, that's all it is,

A face of desired wins.

Someone lost, lost in space,

Searching for the perfect face,

Searching for something fake,

Holding back on what you are,

Too wrapped up in what you wanna be,

Blind in loving who you should be,

That's all it is that lies inside,

A mask of lies
