Us humans walk around always putting on a front

no one is allowed to see our true selves, can't be that blunt

no emotions to be shared with anyone

because no one must know our weakness, it's like a fashion

we pretend to be strong

have to struggle on

we pretend to be brave

like an emotionless slave

we don't ever let anyone see us cry

are you mad, I've got something in my eye

and all that remains is for me to ask why?

will we ever be honest with ourselves about our wants? and our needs?

will we ever free our emotions so that we can suceed?

will we ever be open and honest about what's really going on?

unmask, uncover, show emotions that's not wrong

let people be people that are not full of mystery

when you look in my eyes tell me what do you see?

someone trying to educate humanity

open the gates, release all the misery

are we ever going to help the younger generation to be free?

well, you know what? it starts with you and me

let's start with openness and some honesty

i know who I am but, who might you be?.
