Who We Are

It's always on my mind
No one is real
And even the best fall down sometimes
Reality is slipping away
We hide our true complexion
We gotta stop it now
It's time to learn our lesson

Why is it so hard
To let the truth come out
Why do we hide ourselves
And disappear in the clouds
What makes us who we are
We are afraid to show
Let's take advantage of the glitter
And let our true souls glow

Can't you see
We're all wasting away
And as we hide in the dark
The blue skies are turning gray
On day, your life will flash before your eyes
Make sure it's worth watching
It might take you by surprise
I think the truth is
We've forgotten yesterday
And when we closed our eyes
The passion was swept away
But lets think about tomorrow
And what we might do
If we don't come out of hiding
Everyone will lose
Can't you imagine a place
Kind of like a dream
Where no one is fake
And everyone will gleam
Some of us were born with glitter in our veins
The rest wait for the storm to pass
While we dance in the rain
It's always on my mind
No one is real
And even the best fall down sometimes
