Painful in Pink

A dark abyss of loneliness

Just sitting underneath the surface

It's all okay, you try to say

You'll fool everyone in your way

Do you think that oversweet charade

Will be a strong enough barricade?

Cotton Candy coated smile

Gonna make it worth your while

If you're going down, better do it with style

You'll fool everyone in your way

Do you think that oversweet charade

Will go away without some aid?

That sugar glaze cover up

Just one layer above that bitter cup

Ain't nothing sweet

Inside that treat

Though the outer shell is hard to beat

But I can taste the aspartame in your voice

I can hear the silence through your noise

That sugary coating is pretty pink

And for the moment you just might think

The flavor is natural

But beware of the labels

'Cause Labels lie

Just like you and I
