The alarm is triggered
and the breakdown ensues.
You never knew it could happen,
that it could really happen to you.
The mask had fit perfectly
when I tried it on in the store.
It's made for you said the lady,
said the lady next door.
I only wear it outside
when I go out to explore.
I take it off when I go to sleep,
put it in the nightstand for safe keep.
It's starting to show its wear and tear
and appears to be beyond repair.
I can't go out like this.. because they will know,
they will know that it was only for show.
My value is not there in the mask that I wear
It's a crutch that I use to avoid their abuse.
I'm no longer afraid to show my real face
I want the world to see that I'm finally free.
