This is Halloween

Today we can live like jack and sally
Halo of bones as we fly the cemetery
Smoke inhaled exhaled as petal ghost
Wilt and dissipate its what we do most
Listen as the kids scream
"This is Halloween"
But does anyone care
A different mask then what you always wear
A different costume than you pretend to be
Nothing but a reflection of hopes and dreams
Flitter from orange to black
And just led it fade
Fade to black so I cant see
What mask I fit on today
Will i be the hero
Someone i want to see in the mirror
Or will i be the villain
Selling coke aiming for killing
Why is the hardest mask to put on
I said why is the hardest mask to put on our own face
The one your mother sees
Shouldn't it be easy to place
But we're just scared people
Scared of each other
Scared of ourselves
Is this all were meant to be
The faceless face trying to give a voice to the voiceless
Or can we transcend the eulogy
Angel wings our humble apology
Showing we have more soul to give
More soul to give
Another shot of liquid courage
As we sing the new song of our age
The killswitch is not engaged
We are no lamb of god
We are god
When you put your mask on
When you wear someone else's face
Let me show you 
Let me bring out the real you
