I don’t know why we are so different from each other
Even though we belong to the same race and the same mother
Being a boy is as hard as stone
Moving with the water, along a definite course
To find a definite shape
To hide the truth, behind a smiling face
To find a perfect place
In this wreck or a huge menace
To leave an impression
You cannot speak now
But have to construct a perfect illusion
Take a mask and be fake
In this world, nothing is actually true
The original personalities
Are standing in a long queue
Because the body in which they were
Too scared to speak now
They are waiting to jump into the ocean
And come back as something which is too false to be true
The silence has become so loud
Because no one actually dares to speak now
At least you can’t hear something foul, but true
At least there’s no one fighting for your crown
And in voices there are rumours
Terrible, and cruel, they form a
Cluster on your head
You’re coming one step closer
To turning blind each day
Because you are not able see anything because of that crowd.
We have to speak now, about the truth of life
We have to speak now, to get ourselves through the night
Or else we’ll forever live in a lie
There will be reign of regretion sighs
So we have to Speak Now
To break the truth and lie’s wedding vow.
