Imperceptible, unnoticed, undetectable
Undetectable, indiscernible, indistinguishable
Every word that describes me and how I feel
Pokerfaced life that feels so unreal
Unloved, unnamed, and certainly unknown
Millions of emotions that will never be shown
All hide deep inside my skin
So I cut myself to show what’s within
But no one pays attention, maybe they’re too cheap
And now because of my uncertainties I will never get some sleep
Obscure, misjudged, mistaken
My heart is broke, my world is shaken
Misunderstood by everyone I know
So I don’t let my true colours show
I dim in the sun like a shadow in the light
Everything is so dark I don’t even know what’s bright
Where’s my self confidence, is it buried like my dreams?
Is it covered with my hopes and under my billion screams?
My terrible fate echoes in my head
No one hears my cries, I feel like one of the dead
I might as well be, but would the dead even see me
All of my friends were imaginary
And even they were a bit mean
I would do anything just to be seen
To be loved, understood, to be named something sweet
To come into the light and not to be trampled under everyone’s feet
But my wishes don’t get answered for no one would ever listen
If they even tried their hearts and eyes would glisten
I always heard that it’s better to be you
But the world will never care about something that is true
