I never say what is on my mind
I stand as far as i am told
I raise my hand to inform
I grasp tight the secrets i hold
Because he can find me
he can see me
he can read me
I know the mind reader is watching me
He can see me when i lie
But he can never show his face
He can terrorize my waking mind
He can never leave a trace
And he always sees what is me
he always understands me
he always unravels me
I know the mind reader is watching me
But i must not feel my devotion
I must not think my fear
I must not break his spell
I must not show my tears
I know the mind reader is watching me
But I am watching the mind reader as well

I have been thoroughly impressed ... (more »)
