Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Sometimes you play a role for so long that you forget who you really are...
Losing my mind right now
Grasping for control
But this time I won't win
I can feel it in my soul
The fog is taking over
The poison's taking hold
I could fight a little longer
But I already feel so cold...

Still, I listen for your voice
But this world is much too loud
How could I ever find
A single voice within a crowd?
You say I should be happy
And that makes me want to scream
You THINK my life is perfect
But things aren't always what they seem...

You don't know what really happens
What goes on behind my door
You don't see me fall apart
When I can't take it anymore
You don't know what's on my mind
You don't see behind my mask
Yet... I would tell you everything
If only... you would ask...
