Trap Inside This Cage

Location

If there is nothing but pain

I close my eyes and let it fade

I take my heart and build a wall

Just smile and make them think there is nothing wrong

 

If there is nothing but pain

I wipe my tears and hold my breath

Let my sobs be drowned

And with my laugh, make them think there is nothing wrong

 

If there is nothing but pain

I take my sadness and bury them

Filled my eyes with empty joy

Say I'm happy and there is nothing wrong

 

If there is nothing but pain

I do what it is I do the best

Pretend that there is nothing wrong

Now my heart is empty and cold

 

Now there is nothing left to say

Everything is now in vain

I'm still a puppet controlled by its string

Trap inside an empty dream

Where no one can hear me scream
