They say I’m so unreliable
For pulling at the truth
‘Til it’s what it ought to be
As if I were allowed
The depth of personal history

I say it’s all about that sweet control
A paper lantern covers wires
Otherwise would be exposed
Knowing that I’m broken
Never giving up trying to be whole

Going too far back
Doesn’t make a difference anyway
I’m just gonna feel the same
Leave or stay
Hold me to my past
Doesn’t make a difference anyway
I’m not gonna feel ashamed
Leave or Stay

Damned if I do, damned if I don’t
Can’t be overeager, such a tease
But never saying no
Survival all depends
On secretly being smarter than you show

When all you have is stripped away
You find yourself in the void
Curled up underneath the pain
Nothing left to lose
So they’ll try to steal your brave face

Wears kindness at the masquerade
The devil on his power play
You’ve seen it all
Still you remain
