I took my place in this world: a ghost
I took my name to heart for us both
All we were to the world was smoke

I remember the first time you let out in front of me
I swore I’d never let go (I meant it)

I swore I’d always be there (I meant it)
Promised it would all be fine (I kept it)
I’ve been through worse than this and (I’ve felt it):
Knowing what we really are.

Gone with the passing hour, come brightly burning fire
I’ll live in secrecy before I admit it’s no mistake.

As the curtain, as the curtain falls again –
One more night in the firing line.
I can’t sleep, lest I fall apart again.
This façade is wearing thin.

Separate identity from me.
Segregate feeling from reality.
Media: take my heart, make me feel wrong to be.
Equal eyes, stubborn mind, fearful of integrity:

The hollow me - for me to see.
