"Friend" as written by and Gene/bell Griffin....
I have a friend who only I can see
He stays discreet but that doesn't mean he's hiding
Indeed he's here right now
And I believe that he likes you very much
Because he's smiling

But, my friend will never advertise
He stays inside and whispers secrets that should stay that way

Sometimes he will take to a place
Where everyone accepts me and I'm happy
I rip this metal mask off of my face
I hold my head up high and no one slaps me

But they always come and take me down
And my friend steps back; won't make a sound
I fall back again

    My InterpretationSounds like somebody suffering from schizophrenia or dissociative identity disorder. He has an 'imaginary friend' who only he can hear and see, and the friend makes him feel good about himself even though everybody else is telling him that he's a nut.
