A/N: I'm not sure about the third verse... I tried to make it as not-confusing as possible, and probably didn't succeed. This song means a lot to me; it's one of those ones that after you write it you're like, "Oh snap! I did that?" So, while I appreciate constructive criticism, please don't flame. And if your version of honest is skull-crushingly blunt, I'd rather not hear it. Really, if you hate the song you don't have to tell me all about it. Seeth arbitrarily elsewhere. I'd do the same for anyone who asked.

So... enjoy!


not like you

I'm not like you
I can't just turn it on
And you'd see through
All the masks I've worn
If you wanted to.
And it wouldn't take us long
To get back to
The heart of what went wrong.

I hate this game
They always change the rules
But it's the same
And it's always the fools
Who win the day
I'm about ready to
Say I won't play
And let it all fall through.

Don't try to make me smile
Just let me rest a while...

This is the part
Where everything goes down
This dream departs;
It's gone without a sound.
And human hearts
Can only break the bounds
Of what they start
And hope for higher ground.

Don't try to make me smile
Just let me rest a while...

I'm not like you
I can't just turn it on
And you'd see through
All the masks I've worn
