Behind The Veil


Emotions backlash into submission
Unevenly balanced between reality and illusion
Controlled by a nonexistent force
Hung by strings
My actions involuntary, bounded by a chain and allot a limit
Life is a grand stage and it seems as if I'm the understudy
Lights! Camera! Action!
Breathing silently, holding back
Restricted by this marvelous fear
My only role is to create satisfaction, but I can't satisfy myself
Destitute of truth
Someone please curtail my miserable performance
Let me be who I am, who I desire
Behind the curtain is my safe haven
Because on the outside it's a raging fire
