rags for a golden crown
you dont have to put on a happy face to hide your tears
you dont have to act confident to conceal your fears
the makeup cant cover all of your scars
please return to My waiting arms
why cant you stop the pattern of odium
stop treating yourself like the earths scum
I know you better than you know yourself
dont you realize that youre treating Life like trash
you dont have to style your hair just like that picture
your body wasnt made to look exactly like hers
everyone knows you cant stay dry in the pouring rain
you dont have to act like your life is without a stain
stop buying the lies of everyone else
just trust Me, and just be yourself
I see the tears youve cried when you thought no one was looking
I’ve seen you finger it when you were at home playing hooky
you dont have to believe what hes whispered to you when its late
you dont have to be controlled by this hate
Run to Me and lay your burdens down!
Replace your rags for a golden gown!
Tear off your disguise and come to me with your true face!
I created it, it’s the one I want to embrace!
I can teach you how to dance in the pouring rain!
I can clean off the scum and make you new again!
