Truth Beneath the Lies


The devil is unleashed within me

But the angel it is they see

This is the truth about me

That lies beneath the lies


I smile with them

I laugh with them

I go along with them

But the opposite lies deep


I follow their wants

My want I disregard

Deep within me rages

I hate being ordered


They can see me as biddable

Following all they are expecting me to

But what lies this pretences

Is the hatred I felt for myself


I changed my study habits

And retreated to my rabbithole

But the truth isÖ

Study no more I want


 I imprisoned myself with the books

Not because I wanted to

But because they expected me to

And life by their expectation I want to escape


I donít want to talk about school

When itís in front of them all

But in real I want someone

To talk withí bout the obstacles Iím facing

They see me as a happy person

But sadness rages within me

I want to cry my heart out

But weakness of mine they mustnít see


Iíve learn to hide my feelings

Which Iíve never done from my past

Iím just living with them

Belongingness I donít really feel


In real I am sadÖ

In real I feel hatredÖ

In real I want to be myself againÖ

But these pretences I must keep hold ofÖ
