I wear this mask to hide the truth
Watch it smile, isn't it cute?
Its eyes that glitter, its teeth like pearls
Watch me blend in with the other girls.
Why should the world know what I feel?
If I don't show it, it isn't real.
Yes, it's better, by far, to rein your feelings in.
Why should I feel guilty? This is no sin.
No sin to hide what the world would just reject
No sin to cover, no sin to protect
That which I love and hold most dear.
I wear this mask to hide my fears.
