My life is falling around me.
My life is falling around me
So I bury my head with my hands
In my mind, it's a catastrophe
That no one else can understand
So I peel away the layers
Trying to take away this pain
But I just expose my failures
And the hurt remains the same

I fake a smile on my face
But the pain will not erase
The hurt won't go away
So I die another day

There is no one around here
To tell me that I'll be all right
And take away all these tears
To help me through another night
Or take me to a different place
So I can try to live again
But I'll keep hiding my face
Until I can tear away my skin

I fake a smile on my face
But the pain will not erase
The hurt won't go away
So I die another day

Now I sit here all alone
Waiting for this life to end
I pray to God to take me home
But in my heart, it's all pretend
I can't seem to break my shell
To free me from this misery
Or release me from my private hell
That has become the life for me

I fake a smile on my face
But the pain will not erase
The hurt won't go away
So I die another day
