I'm tired of wearing this mask,
Of putting up this façade.
My mind is in fragments,
From a withstanding this identity's beating.
From sealing away my soul,
So this false man can be touched,
Heard, seen from a distance.
Yet there is no friendship to touch
The invisible man within.
No love to quench the
Hungry soul that's locked within him.
How can you say I don't respect your wishes?
I envy you more then any other.
You are a somebody,
And I would give anything to have that.
You want to be someone else,
I would settle to be someone at all.
To wake up in the morning and to say
that I claim someone's thoughts.
To have a choice in whom I got,
But no, I am but an invisible man.
You want me to respect someone I don't even know.
You keep me at arms length
Saying "that's as far as you go."
You wake up as one person
and go to sleep as another.
I wake up invisible
And go to sleep intangible.
I'm no friend to you
Just a kid you keep around.
I'm the Invisible Man,
That imaginary friend people
Keep around just to hear a sound.
An unreachable freak of a man.
I exist to not exist,
I am unknown to the rest of my human kin.
My words carry no sound,
My skin no touchable surface.
Heart beats a mute rhythm,
My existence naked to normal vision.
I wander the streets,
Bouncing around here and there.
I'm just a tool,
To be used when convenient at best.
Sometimes I really don't care,
The rest of the time I'm afraid
To say I'm scared.
Scared to be alone,
Crestfallen and cold,
Yet reality reminds me of my circumstances.
I do my best to be there when I can,
I attempt to help at my best.
I keep up a façade to fit your lifestyle to a trump,
But I'm just not really there.
I'm just persona, this being,
Who's around until you need me.
I'm a tool, an item,
To make your life more pleasing.
Then once I'm done,
You disown me,
To become someone else's problem.
So go on ahead and wake up,
I'm nothing more then you dreaming.
