Oh, I must be drowning...

I had the best paints
I had all that money can buy
Such a careful covering
That revealed only my strengths

They never saw my weakness
Till the raindrops washed away the crayon
All the writings of my street
Leaving me with my birthmarks
That's the only thing I wanted to lose

Birthmarks - It's vanity, it's vanity
Birthmarks - It's vanity, it's vanity
Birthmarks - It's vanity, drowning into my part

In the bottom, there's no way up
Lying in my agony
I hear the words: I told you so
I feel their despise

Face that used to be so friendly
Does not even recognize me
Finally start to see behind the scene

I can see it from their eyes
I finally start to realize
My true estate was just the disguise

Oh, I must be drowning...

How could I ignore all those castles on the shore
They remind me of the dreams that were torn
How could I rely on something so undefined
Useless were the years of the grind...

Reasons vanished into thin air
Joyful cheers turned into silence
Hand so pure and beautiful
Is now black corpse against the sky
And I wonder what's the use of these

Birthmarks,
Birthmarks,
Birthmarks, birthmarks
Birthmarks, birthmarks

Smiling at the foolish draft
I'm tearing off my skin graft
Leave it in the freezing night
For someone wretched to find
