Lower the mask

on your sad face.

Take up the task

of the misplaced.

Become someone

who isn't you.

The deed is done,

now what to do?

Pretend you are

something you're not.

Your head up so far

and your dreams are shot.

Take of the disguise,

throw it away.

Why spend life with lies?

Be truthfully you today.

People may turn

away with a sneer,

their stomachs a' churn,

send you far from here.

But if they don't really care

then they're not good friends.

If they even dare,

then it's the end.

Lower the mask

from your sad face.

Throw away the task

of the misplaced.
