Masks (Pt. 3)

image

What the light tends to miss is what the dark can't resist.

You’re dangerous only when you’re misunderstood.
You want to cross the lines you know all too well.
Reflection shows what’s going on inside.

Hiding behind what you hate to admit.

The things we do to disguise our urges.
Getting caught up in drugs by any other name.
We’re either running to or from ourselves.

See through my demeanor and shades of grey.

You can’t react to what you don’t recognize.
Look deeper before you love the skin I’m in.
What the light tends to miss is what the dark can’t resist.

Freedom can be frightening, that’s why we want more.

All the things you’ve done become you, if you let them.
Introduce me to your truest identity.
All those secrets, take them off.

I want to see you.
