  1. Mask

From the recording OF LIMBO

Lyrics

i put on my mask
so that you can't see past my act

i follow the script
i just read the lines i'm given

at least i'm seen as one of them
but things aren't always what they seem

one of the cast
the only one who has to act

pretending to laugh
at every joke that i can't stand

below i'm coldly staring back
but all they see is still my mask


i can see what
you can see, but
you can't see what's
underneath the

mask i see through
just to be who
you need me to
to appease you


ignoring the itch
to scratch away this false image

i'm wondering if
my disguise was even made to fit?

can i survive under the weight of it?
is it too great a load to lift?

the weight of the lies
starting to crack my rusty guise

the end is in sight
the last performance is tonight

the mask comes off for the first time
they'll see a me that they don't recognize


i can see what
you can see, but
you can't see what's
underneath the

mask i see through
just to be who
you need me to
to appease you

i can see what
you can see, but
now you see what's
underneath the

mask i wore to
conform to
what i ought to
cause you all do


now
curtain's coming down
lights are going out
i take my final bow

they can see me how
how i am without
the mask they knew so well

staring at the crowd
mirroring themselves
can they even tell?

they're wearing them as well
you're wearing one as well
can you even tell?


i can see what
you can see, but
you can't see what's
underneath the

mask i see through
just to be who
you need me to
to appease you

i can see what
you can see, but
now you see what's
underneath the

mask i wore to
conform to
what i ought to
cause you all do
