What lies behind the perfection
Of your chiseled jaw, your lion's main?
Is it truly you, or is it all deception?

Through everyone's perception
You're seductive as a flame
What lies behind the perfection?

You're the face of a generation
Of smokers, of drinkers, all the same
Is it truly you, or is it all deception?

In your eyes there is frustration
But who is it that you blame?
What lies behind the perfection?

As you enter the celebration
Fogging the lucidity of your brain
Is it truly you, or is it all deception?

Then comes the realization
That you're no longer sane
What lies behind the perfection?
Is it truly you, or is it all deception?
