Behind that mask

Are millions of tears

However, you still smile

Keep up the fake expression

Hide your fears

There is a pretense of happiness

It is not true

 

How long can you hide

Behind that mask

 

The covering of lies

Over a single truth

You keep on saying

The complete opposite of what is true

How long can you

Cover that one truth behind those lies

 

How long can you hide

Behind that mask

 

Innocence plays at your face

You are guilty

Doing something wrong

Is what you hide

Blame it on others

It will not hurt you

But tear that person from within

 

How long can you hide

Behind that mask

 

Fear of speaking out

You cannot spill what you know

There is a mask upon your face

Of not knowing something

It is a mask of cowardice

 

How long can you hide

Behind that mask

 

You will have to come out in the open

Remove that mask

Of fake smiles, innocence, truth and pretence

It is time to take out that mask

 

To show what is

Behind that mask
