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
