Illusions get clearer and clearer,
As they obscure where the reality lies,
In a world full of smoke and mirrors,
To really see, I close my eyes.
Lies ride the currents of air,
The noise that ensues spreads despair,
In this world where words inspire fear,
To really listen, I close my ears.
Whispers rule this rusty world,
Voices of agony remain unheard,
In a world which voices meaningless crap,
To really speak, I shut my trap.
Society tells you what to feel,
Like this, love that, you have to kneel!
In this world where my feelings are sins,
To really feel, I cloak my skin.
You may ask, why am I hiding like this?
What do I seek in that abyss?
The answer is quite simple, you see,
The answer I'm looking for is me.
