Living a Lie


There's so many questions, what does it all mean
Am I for real, a nightmare, a dream?

A life of lies is all that I know
The effect of these lies are starting to show

Just who is it I'm trying to be
A life of deceit is what I believe

These images of mine run ever so deep
How can I go on, there's much to defeat

Weakness and lying have left me so spent
Dealing with my obsessions, I'm all backwards and bent

Certain my life is not what I hoped
Trying to survive all these senses of doubt

I'm so sorry for all the things that have come
There's no turning back now, the damage is done

Seeking for honesty, I'm sure it's out there
Stop hiding behind masks, or you'll soon disappear

I need to try to make amends
My life's on the line, this isn't the end
