lyrics

I live my life behind a mask
And it's not an easy task
To hide every part of me
That I don't want to be seen

It protects me, keeps me safe
It allows me to escape
From the danger that awaits
When I wake up every day

Who's behind it, you might wonder
If I told you, it would crumble
It's a patchwork and a jumble
A crude paper mache

A mask of make nice
A mask of pleasing for the praise
A mask of sacrifice
A mask of vulnerable displays
A mask that catches every insult and won't put up a fight
A mask that holds you close then leaves you in the middle of the night

Oh and sometimes for a moment I'll let out a little light
To see if any gets reflected back
And if I sense a signal that seems to say CQ
Then I might let you see me naked, but you'll never see me nude

I live my life behind a mask
And it's not an easy task
To hide every part of me
That I don't want to be seen

It protects me, keeps me safe
It allows me to escape
From the danger that awaits
When I wake up every day
