How long can one go

pretending to be alive?

Just how does one go on

saying he can't speak?

This face isn't mine

These clothes are a lie

Why must one force themselves

to sing an empty song?

The cruel masses come

to watch the loose feet dance

This joy is theirs

This pain is yours

How long can one go

silently screaming?

Just how does one go on

pretending to pretend?

Just keep dancing

Helplessly hoping

Maybe, somehow

Tonight we'll cut the loose feet

They will hang from their strings

no more.
