you wake up

and makeup

its smeared on your pillowcase

youre gone in your mind

and dead in your face

the mirror

betrays you

and tells you to get a grip

youre nineteen different

people

with a personality problem

so you flip

you put on your tight jeans

or put on a plastic smile

the real \"you\" is hidden

and no ones seenher

for a while

but whats funny

it isnt your lies

or your broken soul

and unheard cries

yes, you have a mask

and hide carefully

but whats funny

is what you cant see

through all these things

you havent fooled anyone

no, not a soul

with the person you become

Every word you say

Defines who you are

But you’re not really that person

And you haven’t come that far

Your mask has layers

With each and every age

You shed the ones you hate

And the others are saved

It doesn’t make sense

You laugh at your own tears

And it interesting really

To others that not how you appear

Yes, you have a mask

And hide carefully

But what’s funny

Is what you can’t see

Through all these things

You haven’t fooled anyone

No, not a soul

With the person you become...
