"Masquerade"

 

Played my part again in the masquerade

Filled in the cracks, painted a smile on my face

I danced again the deceitful waltz, hid my soul in disgrace

All around me I see the masks of Cheshire smiles and lying eyes

And I know they can see I don't belong in this world

Of perfection and empty fantasies

 

What can I do and what can I say

To fool my heart again today?

If I repeat the words, if I just pretend

Will you believe that I'm okay?

The mask is chipped, falling from my face

But if I smile, bid the pain away

Maybe I'll fool myself someday

 

Painted illusions and pretty words

Chase me in my sleep, as the phantoms scream inside my dreams

The lie is melting, colors drip down the walls

And without the veneer, where can we hide?

Stain glass windows break, scattering on the floor

And there's nowhere left to go, ‘cause we can't tell what's real anymore

 

Well I don't care if it's destroyed, this place of unreality

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

It all comes to an end anyway

All I want is all that's real

The flaws and tatters in my soul

Don't care if I'm right, if it's illogical

All I want is something real
