I have this mask that I wear daily
Which protects me from the world, and protects me from me
Behind it I hide, what I really feel
Behind a picture of sunshine, was the shadow of what's real
I seem to lose my sanity
Oh mask.. mask.. I am tired and weary
Weary of hiding fears and weaknesses
with an illusion, a face of happiness
With a world of lies and deceit
The golden world which surrounds me
Putting up the twinkling eyes and brilliant smile
Though deep inside, a soul that cries
A thousand questions fill my mind
Countless answers I search to find
Would this hiding last forever?
Is this life, or is there something better?
How long will this darkness last?
How long must I wear this mask?
