"...in the end, you've got to become the change you want to see in the world."


Verse 1
I am invisible
To the outside world.
I am a statue
Waiting to return.

Oh, I’m waiting and waiting
For this to end,
But it just keeps going on,
So now I’m back to the beginning.

Verse 2
I am a burden
To everyone that sees me.
I’m scared to open up,
‘Cause I don’t want them to leave me.

So I just sit here alone
Watching the world go on without me,
And I put on my mask,
Hiding my face from everything.

Chorus
Oh, what do I have to do
To make myself feel better?
I just want to fly away
Becoming free, not getting sadder.
Oh, why am I like this?
Why am I so depressed?
What’s wrong with me?
Why am I not free?


Why am I hiding?

Verse 3
I feel the pain
That blackens my soul.
I feel the heartache
Burnin’ a hole.

There’s a volcano erupting,
Letting the pain burn inside of me,
With a twister turning,
Making it hard to see.

(Chorus)

Bridge
What am I hiding from?
Am I hiding from the pain,
Just trying to get away?
Oh, what am I confused about?
Is it happiness
Or is it just myself?
Oh, what do I have to do
To leave the pain behind?

I just want to rewind.

(Chorus)


The author's comments:
I am invisible. No one sees me. They can see me with their eyes, but not with their hearts, so they don't even notice my pain. But of course I don't want them to. I wear my mask to stay hidden. If only I could know what I'm hiding from.
