You write it down

Just like a normal song

Nobody knows

What's really gone on

They just think it's lyrics

Not meaning a thing

But I know there's more

To those lyrics you sing

You mask it in words

So many don't see

Just what you mean

In your silent plea

You cry out for help

The crowd just applaud

As if it's no more

Than sounds for the bored

I listen to those words

And I hear your tears

That don't get across

Like they're silent fears

You write it all down

Masking your own pain

You've done it before

And you'll do it again
