Modern Masquerade

Each day passes fast
Like an ad on my TV screen
Each emotion fleeting
Like my smile in the bathroom mirror
I got voices whispering
nothings in my head
And each morning I wake
The lies a little harder to tell

Every day the mask goes on
Everybody has one
From the moment we wake to the moment we sleep
To save ourselves from failure

One day
I’ll break this
This modern masquerade
One day
I’ll change it
This modern masquerade
I’ll laugh and I’ll cry and I’ll do the things I want
One day
I’ll remove it
This modern masquerade

Time passes then it’s gone
Like the fade at the end of a song
Everyone around me walks
Like there on a mission
Each laugh I fake
Makes my heart break more
Every dream I ignore
Helps me die a little more

Every day the mask goes on
Everybody has one
From the moment we wake to the moment we sleep
To save ourselves from failure

One day
I’ll break this
This modern masquerade
One day
I’ll change it
This modern masquerade
I’ll laugh and I’ll cry and I’ll do the things I want
One day
I’ll remove it
This modern masquerade

And I’ll never really know me till mask comes off
And I’ll never really know you till the mask comes off
And I’ll never really know me till mask comes off
And I’ll never really know you till the mask comes off
