We walk amongst the faithful.

Unknown to human eyes.

So normal and so human,

They can't see through our disguise.

The tears of angels made us

As they flew down from the sky.

They didn't want to do it,

So all they did was cry.

We're stuck amongst the ruin.

The horror and despair.

We've seen a bit too closely

To the heart of Evil's lair.

 

We walk amongst the faithful.

Unknown to human eyes.

So normal and so human,

They can't see through our disguise.

We're scarred up on the inside,

But outside we're just fine.

We hide the truth so well

They can't see into our lies.

Our daddies were all drinkers.

And when they would get mad,

They'd take it out us poor souls,

And boy were we so glad

When Daddy drank himself to sleep,

And we could go and hide.

Carve another scar into our heart

Which was hidden deep inside.

 

We walk amongst the faithful

Unknown to human eyes

So normal and so human

They can't see through our disguise.

Our mommies all liked men

Perhaps a bit too much

They sampled fair and far

And didn't mind the touch.

When Mommy fell asleep,

Her boyfriends would come down

And they would scare us half to death

And they'd start to mess around.

And after they were done

Ravaging our broken souls

We'd take our chance to run

And hide from things we'd never know.

 

We walk amongst the faithful

Unknown to human eyes

So normal and so human

They can't see through our disguise.

Our families are all broken

We have no place to hide

No place to let our tears out

To let out what hurts inside.

And now we sit here all alone

In this dark corner as all hope

Evades our longing hands

We've lost our way to cope.

And now we hide our feelings

And what they've done to every “me”.

We hold our chins up high.

We do not let them see.

 

We walk amongst the faithful

Unknown to human eyes

So normal and so humans

Can't see through our disguise

We pretend it doesn't happen

We can't let anyone know

Our traitor of a heart

Is something we can't show.

Would anyone even understand

What we hold inside our hearts?

Or would we be a freak show

A different world apart?

Maybe one day we will find one

Every single one of us

Someone who will understand

Someone we can trust.
