The Mask

How did I do myself so wrong?
Slowly becoming a different person
Haven’t seen myself in so long
Since I’ve put on the mask of depression
It’s only intent crying out to be well
As I walk the walk of shame
All the way to hell

Now I didn’t intend for this to happen
Didn’t realize that I’ve been strangled by an unknown force
Making for bad emotions; making my brain too hoarse
Not a care in the world did it have on me
Making decisions carelessly
As if it were addicted to negativity

How did I do myself so wrong?
Slowly becoming a different person
Haven’t seen myself in so long
Since I’ve put on the mask of depression
It’s only intent crying out to be well
As I walk the walk of shame
All the way to hell

The mask of depression, it said to me
“I can take away your insecurity
Come to the darkside and you’ll forget
Every one of your troubles, but add regret
Hide behind this mask and protect yourself
Use it to relieve yourself”

How did I do myself so wrong?
Slowly becoming a different person
Haven’t seen myself in so long
Since I’ve put on the mask of depression
It’s only intent crying out to be well
As I walk the walk of shame
All the way to hell

But underneath this is not who you are
Underneath the surface is a hidden scar
I want nothing more than to take off this mask
And show you how truly happy I can be
Why that’s all I can ask;
Why was I not happy with being happy?
