Under Your Many Masks

Under Your Many Masks

All of the yesterdays come flooding into my memory
the yesterday that I was hurt
the yesterday that I was treated like dirt
the yesterday that I was betrayed
and the chance of those yesterdays coming back and being today

I remember when I truly felt alive
but now I'm just bones trying to survive
I reminisce every moment of each day
and nothing rescues me, my mind is alone and mean

I find myself doubting things more and more
I've become numb to practically everything I'm sure
but deep down inside is this pit in me
a thousand feet deep filled with all the regrets and conflicts
that slowly got suffocated and buried alive in me

My eyes are dim to anything in front of me
I can't think of one thing that truly excites me
people annoy me by prolonging talking
I just want to smash everything up and start walking

I just want to escape this place
But I am stuck here wondering when I'll get replaced
By another me, or another her
another victim to climb on the ladder of hurt

Am I in the wrong?
for feeling so weak
am I as strong
as I'd like to believe

How long can I take it?
The lies, the deceit
and will I make it?
beyond our retreat

I cannot trust you or anybody
because I have not been shown the right
to go with all the wrong that I've had in my life
I want to break down in front of you many times more
but to you it's just something I will get over
maybe I've become a bore?

I have been lied to, I have been used
I have been cheated and physically abused
I have been through the worst kind of hell
and yet it seems I know nothing
because I'm still walking on eggshells

Why am I bothering? What is it all for?
To realise that nothing will change just like before
I can't work out if I'm trying to see a change in you or myself
and I'm only going crazier trying to figure it all out

You have no idea how much I care
and I truly wish that I had no feelings there
because they get in the way of every decision that would be right
because every one I've made so far has been fight or flight

When will you show me who you really are?
When the real you feels less vulnerable
under your many masks?
