lyrics

The mask I wear, I wear for you
So afraid of what you'd do
If you saw me for all in all
All my scars, and all my flaws

The war, the war you see in me
The moments I can't breathe
I try to hide all this darkness inside
And keep it behind a façade, but it's destined to break
And that's a chance I just have to take

When the lights are turned this way
It always feels like somebody's mistake
Another day and all its doubts
How long, I wonder, will I live under this cloud?

The war, the war you see in me
The moments I can't breathe
I try to hide all this darkness inside
And keep it behind a façade, but it's destined to break
And that's a chance I just have to take

And I know that I'm hardly alone
In search water among these dry bones
In the dark, you say it's all right
But how, I wonder, would it be in the light

We are none of us a masterpiece
Just works in progress still
We are none of us a masterpiece
Just works in progress still
We are none of us a masterpiece
The war you see in me
We are none of us a masterpiece
The war you see in me
