Mask (2006)

A painful past
Memories spread fast
Haunting thoughts from bedtime until you wake
Pile on the make up and bake a cake
Plaster your pain with material and others
Adopt a new life and new sisters and new brothers
Layered in ice you weigh much more
On the outside you look happy but on the inside you are sore
As you run the cake on your face starts to crumble
Picking up the inedible pieces you do so humble
Building mountains on jelly will never last
Choosing colouful cakes are just a mask
