"I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is."

when i was young
i believed in a thing called love
with cupids and meanings
and heartbeats and feelings

it's almost funny now
that i still save it in the back of my mind
that love still has a chance
that i'll get that second glance

the hearts surround my brain,
slowly suffocate my breath
the high makes me drunk
even though i know my hopes are sunk

a stupid little valentine
and i find the prospect lingering there
that stupid little cupid will stick my butt
and, oh, what luck
