The makeup hides your face
But no, it can't hide who you are
It covers up the flaws
But no, it can't repair the scars
Mascara bleeds on magazines
You just can't be who they are...
 
Everybody tells you
Good enough's not good enough
You're sealing in the pain
To try and show the world you're tough
But your painted walls are crumbling
The tears all call your bluff...
 
So rise like a phoenix
Beauty renewed
Not a photoshop diva
Just try to be you
The masquerade's over
Melt down the facade
You're a covered-up girl
And you're screaming inside...
 
The mirror lies
Can't look inside
Your passion dies
When you let it reside
In the web of doubt
You've created yourself
You're a covered-up girl
And you're dying inside
