Hiding behind a wall of glass.
Sheilding yourself with see-through lies.
People try but they can't get past
The trying-to-be-strong, wandering eyes.
Making yourself look smooth and clear.
Like the window blocking the real you.
You're standing there while I'm right here.
Knowing this transparent mask's not true.
But windows can be plastic, fragile, thin.
The people behind, like those, are fakes.
They are one-way windows, I see right in.
Eventually all glass breaks.
