Lyrics



It's hopeless and helpless
I'm tired of the charade
Neglected in a corner
A lamp with a dirty shade
I'm caught amongst the clutter
Poor judgement is all I've known
It takes one step and then another
To make this life my own

What I've been taught
Doesn't need to be shown
What I must learn
Must be learned on my own

Symptoms of the sickness
The mask without a face
Inevitable weakness
Unable to relate

Sense of self
Set to filter deceit
Focus on the point
And manifest my needs

We're normalized to pascify
Blind where we should see
We hide behind the curtain
With the secrets that we keep
Solutions to a problem
That they just don't want to hear
Just repress the stomach pain
The shame, guilt, and fear

Can she recognize a victim
Without witnessing a crime
Apathetic mother's face
Sour like a lime
Decades of deception
Without daddy's point of view
You can't protect the helpless
If you are helpless too

Untreatable dillemas
Undercover blown
Inevitable madness
The seed that I have sown

Sense of self
Set to filter deceit
Focus on the point
And manifest my needs

Criticize and genderize
Recycle what you know
Show me where my
weakness is
I'll show you how I'll grow

Symptoms of the sickness
The mask without a face
Inevitable weakness
Unable to relate

Criticize and genderize
Recycle what you know
Show me where my
weakness is
I'll show you how I'll grow

Untreatable dillemas
Undercover blown
Inevitable madness
The seed that I have sown

Sense of Self
Set to filter deceit
Focus on the point
And manifest my needs

Stuck in life
No choice
Inherited
Given my circumstance
Inevitably me
