I wonder if you can see
I wonder if you can tell
I wonder if you see through
The mask I wear so well for you
I'll never let you know what's going on inside me
My shame, locks me down

All the things I wanted to tell you
All the things I never will
Everytime you reached out to me
All I did was push you away

I can't unchain the beast that screams inside me
I hate it, it's what I am

It makes me sick to be so mean
From where I've been and what I've seen
From top to bottom, I am obsene

It stands in my place
It spits in my face
Shame

You smile at me, I smile back
You ask me how I am
I tell you that I'm fine

I don't why I'm so torn up inside my mind
The darkness, it swallows me whole

It makes me sick to be so mean
From what I've been and what I've seen
From top to bottom, I am obsene

It stands in my place
It spits in my face
It's shame, shame!
It's shame!

It makes that old lie
It makes that old lie
It makes me look at myself and say
"Man, you're doing just fine.
You're doing great."
I'm not living in a lie
I'm not living in a lie
Or am I ??

It makes me sick to be so mean
From what I've been and what I've seen
From top to bottom, I am obsene

It stands in my place
It spits in my face!
Shame....

Don't go too deep
Don't ask me why
Don't try to know me
Don't make me lie

I wish I didn't know the things I do so well
I try to change
But it's what I am

It makes me sick to be so mean
From what I've been and what I've seen
From top to bottom, I am obsene

It stands in my place
It spits in my face!
It's shame, shame!
It's shame, shame...

I'm not living in a lie, am I?
I'm not living in a lie, am I?
Naw.....
