The Other Side

By , Whitby, Canada
It's mourning time
As I awake
Pretend I'm fine
I feel the ache

The urge is strong
I can't give in
I know it's wrong
But touch my skin

I feel the pain
But it's okay
And as it stains
I walk away

As if from mars
I feel left out
I see the scars
And want to shout

And I'm alone
In this dark room
The things unknown
Begin to bloom

But as I stand
I start to see
The blood drained hands
The other three

And just as I
They feel the same
The silent cries
Cannot be tamed

But this we hide
From all around
This secret side
That we have found

And all the faces
Behind a mask
Different races
But still one task

And we're all scared
Of what we've done
When no one cared
It was just fun

But take a look
Open your eyes
As what it took
Destroyed our lives

Blinded by tears
We never saw
Cause past our fears
Was blocked by flaws

And in the end
We're frozen still
Until we mend
It's going to kill

hey, we really are alone. i just read your sidenote and I want you to know that the people you're reffering to are just mere cardboard spectacles.
