Living a Lie

Do you ever really see me
Have any idea how I feel
Do you think you know who I am
Do you really notice the details

An outline of perfection
Innocence adorned in sin
Decorated indiscretion
Bitter war within

And would you still like me if you found out
I wasn't exactly who you thought I was about

I'm living a lie
Hard to keep all my stories straight
I'm living a lie
Can you see it in my eyes

Tracing my creation
Tasting rage and loneliness
Self-inflicted isolation
Disillusioned thoughtlessness

Cause you wouldn't like me if you found out
I wasn't exactly who you thought I was about

I'm living a lie
Hard to keep all my stories straight
I'm living a lie
Can you see it
I"m living a lie
Hard to keep all my stories straight
Can anyone see it in my eyes
Truth hurts, it hurts

Too many judgements, questions
I don't accept you, too many rejections
Trapped in contradictions, lack of vision, indecision
I'm on the edge of reason, falling blindly 
Innocence unwinding

I lie
