Lyrics

on the boundary of reason you lead a recovery
to stay in the lines at the cost of your sanity
you're not meant to be like them

you will paint a reflection that you'll never be
and you will die for brilliance veiled in foundations of lies and deceit
and you will hide everything about you that's anything but flawless

you cut out the heart of the person you could've been
you trade in your conscience for somebody else's skin
once altered to taste you'll see what you've feared
the image you've sought for so many years
is far from as perfect as the things you used to see

and yet you still paint a reflection that you'll never be
and you would die for brilliance veiled in foundations of lies and deceit
and once you hide everything about you that's anything but flawless
and they have shattered an exception and that's when you'll see
they have won

we can only see
the beauty buried beneath
can't you see my dear
you are all you have left to fear
