"Faces" as written by Peter Mcnulty-connolly, Marcus Mybe, Louie St. Louis, Kurtis Deshaun Williams and Davinche,....
Would you agree that we're far from all right?
(We fall below the line! We fall below the standards)
If only you could see
What we see through these eyes
(This plague is spreading, it will sink under your skin)

I won't believe the horror that I see
Is more than your poison inside me

Let's tear away these faces we hide behind
Cutting through the airwaves
Open up our minds
Show ourselves to the world tonight
'Cause we are, no longer in disguise!

Well, I’m aware of your lies, how do you sleep at night?
(It's all a matter of time, I think their catching on)
You dream of wars, that I refuse to fight
(While people disappear, another broken heart)

I won't believe the horror that I see
Is more than your poison inside me
I won't let go, though the plague is spreading
I won't let go

Let's tear away these faces we hide behind
Cutting through the airwaves
Open up our minds
Show ourselves to the world tonight
'Cause we are, no longer in disguise!

We can save ourselves
(Rise up)
You can't stop us
We can save our soul
(Rise up)
We don’t need your help
We can save ourselves
(Rise up)
You can’t stop us

Let's tear away these faces we hide behind
Cutting through the airwaves
Open up our minds
Show ourselves to the world tonight
'Cause we are, no longer in disguise!

Tear away these faces
Tear away these faces
Tear away these faces

We're no longer in disguise!

    General CommentThis song is so amazing!

    And tear away these faces we hide behind
    cutting through the airwaves, open up our minds

    Might be that instead? I don't know.

    I think it's just about being yourself, and not being fake.

    General Commentmmm lovely song.
    i think it's tear instead of sail =]. it does sound a lot like sail but tear makes more sense.

    General Commentthis song is so hype&amazing.
    i agree with everyone else, its about being yourself and not hiding behind a mask, with your real self hiding.
