Track Name: Eyes Unclouded
I couldn't see before
I was blinded by an image
Reflected in a broken mirror
The one you broke for me

I thought I could see you
As transparent and clear painted as you are
I believed you were really there
I created you

You never looked at me
Like I looked at you
And only now I've looked away
Do I really see you

Can't you see
We were a lie
A lie I tangled myself in
In fear of opening my eyes

But you can't
You never will
Not like I see now
Eyes unclouded by love

But was it really love
Or just something almost as false
As the image I once saw
In the mirror you broke for me
Track Name: Painted Mask
We'll never know ourselves
Till we've known darkness
We'll never be who we'll become
Till we've been something we are not

We'll never see
Till we open our eyes
And we'll never run
Till we take the first step

Here I am
Running
And there you are
You're not living
You're not knowing

You'll never smile
Till you let yourself cry
And you'll never heal
Till you face the monster inside

And you'll never know him
Till you know yourself

Here I am
Running
And there you are
You're not living
You're not knowing

How can anyone know you
How can you know yourself
When you hide your face
Behind that painted mask
Track Name: Statues
There once was a girl who loved you
More than you'll ever believe
She became her own work of art
For you she wished to please

She sculpted herself to your tastes
Whittled herself away
Until one day she disappeared
An empty body
With a pretty face

The tears she cried for you
They carved away her soul
And you
You just sat and stared
And you said nothing at all

Forever fearful she was
That you would look the other way
Lay eyes upon another
And no longer want to stay

She could never be enough
For only you she tried
But there was always one statue
fairer
Placed there by her side

The tears she cried for you
They carved away her soul
And you
You just sat and stared
And you said nothing at all

When she started to crumble
When her sharp detail began to decay
When all that was left of her faded
You got up

and you walked away
Track Name: Virus
You stand up
But you don't stand tall
You stand so they can watch
And catch you when you fall

They crave to hold you closer
Your weakness is what sells
Embraced in fear you whisper
Save me from myself

There's a virus inside of you
And it's slowly taking control
It feeds off the false truth
That you'll never be good enough

And she- she's no different
Neither is the next girl
There must be something absent
When we're consumed with hating ourselves

Hold my hand
Take a step back
Behind the glossy skin, the perfect photographs
We're all so trapped

There's a virus inside of us
And it's slowly taking control
It feeds off the false truth
That we'll never be good enough
Track Name: The Secret
A year passes
And it's like nothing's changed
We're all still here
Warm embraces, smiling faces
But only I know the secret
Nothing is like it used to be

In the face of madness
I stood and I screamed
You can't have me
Crying as I chased the poisoned shadow away
In its place I planted a seed
And I watched it
As it blossomed

And I've never had a friend like this
To stand beside me in this freedom
I never knew I could feel so alive
See the world so clearly as it is
And I'm no longer afraid

No longer haunted by love
