Glass houses shatter easily enough
And your specious houses built on the sand
Without the proper foundations shall fall
So too your castles in the air standing tall
We no longer from the same glass sup
This time there can be no kiss-and-make-up

We see you paint your eye
A mask to live the lie
To show you as someone else
Stronger than you are
We see you colour your lips
A mask to live the lie
To hide your sneer behind
The evil that you are
We see you whiten your face
A mask to live the lie
To blot out all trace of the person that you truly are

We're not toys with which to be idly played
Nor mannequins clothed in your favourite phrase
Your comments fuel more than dignity commands
And we must needs answer our pride's demands
We no longer from the same glass sup
This time there can be no kiss-and-make-up

We see you paint your eye
A mask to live the lie
To show you as someone else
Stronger than you are
We see you colour your lips
A mask to live the lie
To hide your sneer behind
The evil that you are
We see you whiten your face
A mask to live the lie
To blot out all trace of the person that you truly are

Talk about biting the hand that feeds
For your naive complaints our hearts bleed
It remains to be seen who more feels the pain
Of spiteful words spoken in vain
We no longer from the same glass sup
This time there can be no kiss-and-make-up
