Persona

Step into a world
Enshrouded by the fog
Of the truth you try to hide
Of the truth you pass as lies

Shades of your past
Try to take you in the blast
As they're digging out truth
Make you reach out for the truth

Strip away your facade of broken glass
The jagged diamond center of your true persona
Strip away the thick shell in which you hide

Till there's nothing left for you to hide
The truth within is now open wide
Now come along before you're lost within the tide

Crash, thunder booms
And the dark clouds, they loom
Overhead, they start to crack
Downpour and turn the sky to black

Boom, trigger pulled
But the future wasn't nulled
If you want to see inside
Buckle up, let's take a ride

Persona, to grant you the power
To rise and face the day
Conquer all that's in your way

Hear the thunder crack
As you pull the trigger back
If you want to be somebody else
You should learn to see yourself

'Cause do you really wanna live like that?
Acting like a fly if you're just a gnat?

Strip away your facade of broken glass
The jagged diamond center of your true persona
Strip away the thick shell in which you hide

'Cause there's so much more for you to see
The only person that you need to be
Is yourself and that is all that should ever be

'Cause there's no reason to live a big lie
Acting like a god when you're so scared to die

Strip away your facade of broken glass
The jagged diamond center of your true persona
Strip away the thick shell in which you hide

Till there's nothing left for you to hide
The truth within is now open wide
Now come along before you're lost within the tide
