Song from the depths of my mind

Verse:
What I show the world hides what's inside
I'm speaking in riddles, I'm living a lie
The picture I paint but an illusion
A man out of step, lost in confusion
 
Pre-Chorus:
The mask smiles but underneath it all
Is a man who is headed for the ultimate fall
 
Verse:
 
Just an outline of the man I've become
Going through motions, normal to some
Appearances deceiving, a slight of hand
Hiding in castles made of shifting sand
 
 Pre-Chorus:
The mask smiles but underneath it all
Is a man who is headed for the ultimate fall
 
Chorus:
 
Facing a world I no longer see as real and true
Maybe I never did, and I've just been a fool
Is it all an illusion in a fun-house mirror,
A hazy world in which nothing is clear? 
 
Verse:
The passing years bring unreal and rain
The crumbling pillars fall in heaps of disdain
Crushing all but the cult under it's falling stone
Leaving me disillusioned and so all alone
 
Pre-Chorus:
The mask smiles but underneath it all
Is a man who is headed for the ultimate fall
 
Chorus:
 
Facing a world I no longer see as real and true
Maybe I never did, and I've just been a fool
Is it all an illusion in a fun-house mirror,
A hazy world in which nothing is clear?
 
End

Hang in there Mike! You have much talent to share, let alone your intelligence. You may not be as alone as you may think.
