Conceal the inside
woe betide thee, who's enemy sees
what they're really like
colour the outside
a life disguised - what's this? sounds like denial.
A lonely scene
shadows walking the streets
faking unity
with acid tongues they speak
burning holes through the sheets
exposing reality.

I've seen as much as I want to see

I'm proposing
we all take a moment
to face the world with honesty
speak now or forever hold your peace
we're not coping
there's only a moment so
hold on to integrity
speak now or forever hold your peace

Turn your eyes to a mirror
and what do you see?
a vision of who you're pretending to be?
is it working for you?
or are there things you could improve?
it's a solemn scene
stop rehearsing the script it's the lines that are in between
but you're busy escaping reality
and you've read as much as you're gonna read
and I've seen as much as I want to see

I'm proposing
we all take a moment
to face the world with honesty
speak now or forever hold your peace
we're not coping
there's only a moment so
hold on to integrity
speak now or forever hold your peace

I'm proposing
we all take a moment
there's nothing quite
as cruel as time
what's the worst that we could find?
what's the worst that we could find?
I'm supposing
You're eyes were never open?
when the damage is done
do you feel like you've won?
Or do you mourn all you have broken?

speak now or forever hold your peace
speak now or forever hold your peace
speak now or forever hold your peace
speak now, speak now
speak now or forever hold your peace
speak now or forever hold your peace
speak now or forever hold your peace
speak now, speak now

I'm proposing
we all take a moment
to face the world with honesty
speak now or forever hold your peace
we're not coping
there's only a moment so
hold on to integrity
speak now or forever hold your peace
