City Of Ashes – Masks lyrics

Does it make me a liar if I hold back half the truth?
Does it make me a coward if I hide from the trials of my youth?
We're all searching for answers
As we stare into the starlit sky tonight

Which way is higher, the martyr or the beast
And I feel like a monster when I reflect on my history
And these subtle truths will hide
Within the trees of a forest built on lies

Am I really here?
Seems that I've become a shadow of my fear
And I can't find myself

Well I might feel alone
But my demons have my back, and they're twisting the knife
Under constant threat that I'll attack
And the night is filled with masks
To hide the faces of the lives they lack

Am I really here?
Seems that I've become a shadow of my fear
And I can't find myself

This skin deep cold we've grown
Has antiquated our ideals and shown a generation
Looking for somewhere to call home
Inside we're all alone
Inside we're all alone

Am I really here?
Seems that I've become a shadow of my fear
And I can't find myself behind the night
We're all lost and searching for the light
