Happiness like a mask,
Wild-eyed and hollow,
And cold electronic task,





And a breath she can’t swallow,

Wild-eyed and hollow,

Now collapsing in darkness,




And a breath she can’t swallow,




An invisible mess,

Now collapsing in darkness,




Like a body displayed,




An invisible mess,





A tomb laid,

Like a body displayed,




Her eyes were fixed,




A tomb laid,





My feelings mixed,

Her eyes were fixed,

And cold electronic task,
My feelings mixed,





Happiness like a mask.
