Bury me in your lies of content
So much of my time spent
Wishing I could understand you
Wishing you'd understand what you put me through
shed the tear of false hope
Lose the ability to cope
With the silence, and the answers lost behind a locked door
Lost in a place unknown...I fall to the floor
You are my best friend...
But I question what I am to you, and if anything ever really mattered in the end
Did you know I tell you everything...
And I thought you did too, but now I realize...I am told nothing
Grant me the lie of your fantasy
Slave away to hide in the mystery
How many others do you hide from,
Or am I the only one?
