lyrics

When i talk to you i walk on rice paper. I'm on the mend i wasn't cut out for that, no. As the night falls you only see my flaws, i'm only trying to get my point across. Very few people do this anymore, it's too risky. It's much easier to be somebody else, somebody else, or nobody at all, or nobody at all. You don't have to be a nobody, a nobody. I think that you've lost sight. Can you see any better when you take your mask off at night. You're not fooling anyone. I see right through you, i see right through you. Your transparency won't fade 'cause life isn't a masquerade. When i talk to you i walk on rice paper. I'm on the mend i wasn't cut out for that. I think that you've lost touch. Is it all too much, for you to feel like you're yourself when you wish that you were someone else? I think that you've lost sight. Can you see any better when you take your mask off at night? You're not fooling anyone. I see right through you, i see right through you. Your transparency won't fade 'cause life isn't a masquerade. What if every move you made did not pertain to anyone? What if every war you fought was fought so that you won? And no one else could tell you that you couldn't reach the sun if you wanted to. I want you to.
