I bought this mask to wear so I can hide It makes me look normal – now they all think I'm sane, I put my mask on and wash away the constant pain I used to look for fun – now I'm too lazy I put my mask on and then I'm not so crazy If you are trapped now – and you need to be free Hit the road with a mask of sanity, C'mon You got the pieces You got the power And no one needs to know You're in a tailspin You wanna live forever Something has toget together Someone must take it home He's never going home He's only gonna roam HE'S NEVER GOIN HOME! I feel “let down” well up inside of me That's when I put on a mask of sanity.
