This prison wall, this masquerade drains life
Every time I fall into it's trap.
I all alone build barriers from strife,
Though hurt inside I still force out a laugh
I paste a smile no matter what I feel
Like clowns with made-up faces I disguise
My past, my imperfections I conceal
The safety it provdes leads to demise
Why am I so afraid to let it out?
Why can't I simply show my other side?
'Cause chances are there are without a doubt
Some others who remain somewhat untied.
So brick by brick I'm ripping down this wall
And brick by brick I'm letting people see
That though my confidence is very small
These broken pieces are what make me...me.
