To Be or Not To Be


All my life
no matter where I go
People don’t look at me
The way they do the normal folk
They don’t pass a second glance
not even love could fill this gap
Please I’m begging just see me

To be or not to be
Pretend I’m someone that I’m not
To be or not to be
Remember me, remember me
else i’ll go insane
To be or not to be
Remember me, remember me
Adieu Adieu
There’s no turning back

So for now I dawn a mask
Now Lieing of who I am
But keeping my own name
Now they look at me
With wondering eyes
But I can’t help that somethings going wrong

To be or not to be
This person they believe
To be or not to be
Remember me, Remember me
The old me’s put to death
To be or not to be
Remember me, Remember me
Adieu Adieu
Let’s see how long this will last

But the looks have turned to words
The walls I built
Are caving in
I can’t keep this up for long
The lies I kept
Will tear me down I’m sure of it
It’s all unraveling

To be or not to be
But I can’t stop anymore
To be or not to be
Remember me, Remember me
Please see me for who I was
To be or not to be
Remember me, Remember me
Adieu Adieu
I can’t seem to act that way again

They talk of getting rid me
It seems I tried too hard
I try to show I’m not that way
This mask I wore
Is woven in
I can feel it in my skin
I’m not insane
Please someone help
I can’t breath
The lights are going out

To be or not to be
It’s really not a choice
To be or not to be
Remember me, Remember me
And carry out my story
To be or not to be
Remember me, Remember me
Adieu Adieu

It’s too late I’ll change the story
But it seems I’m caught in my own trap
The lies I told have come back
Like poison in my veins
The mask is off
There’s nothing left
What mask, what mask
Didn’t you know
I’ve always been this way
