The Secrets Within

I hide behind a mask so I don't show my sensitive side.
Only reason why is because all the energy I had to care has died.
The images of a future always come so clear,
but it's the consequences of some
and their reactions that I tend to fear.
You don't write checks your ass can't cash,
so why make empty promises that once
they come out your mouth they quickly turn to ash?
The same one is exactly like the last one,
disguised as a human being.
And now that I've seen you,
like I predicted you're quick to take flight and start fleeing.
Then again,
it could all be in my head,
and the feeling I have will soon come to an end.
