MasqueradeMature

I hear voices swarming around

Wasn't long before yours was heard.

It's about time we set a score

No man can settle for ties.

It's about time we sat down

And we discussed what was moving about.

But you're hiding behind alibis.

Wish I could see through every lie.

It hurts to hear these things

Making me lose all my sanity.

We keep dancing to this tune.

Someday we're gonna run it out.

Can't pretend we won't collide

With all the words you've been spitting out.

Gotta be careful to mind your space.

One step and you lose the race.

It's hard when you're with alibis.

I can't see through each disguise.

It hurts to hear these things

Making me want to run away.

What attempt is to be made

When you're keeping far out of reach?

No need to avoid or get mad

Unless you got secrets had.

Now I know you set me up

You think you're good, but you ain't good enough.

Stop using these alibis

Someday you're gonna collide.

Getting tired of hearing these things

Making me want to tear us down.

Love is a word we don't throw around,

But if it's my fault then maybe it is.

I can tell you've been blaming me

For every wrong move I make.

It's high time we figured this out.

I wonder what these lies are about.

You've got too many alibis.

By now I see they're all lies.

Fed up with whatever you say

Making me want to kill the day.

Love is a word we don't throw around,

But if it's my fault then maybe it is.

How come the blame falls on me

While you run away in secrecy?

No more can you wear this mask

You got some truth you gotta say.

I swear to whoever's listening.

You got some truth you gotta say.

No more damn alibis.

I'm close to just losing my mind.

The End
