I know why you hide behind sleeves
I know the pain behind your glazed over eyes
I can tell your real smiles from the fake ones you put on display
You avoid their questions, but Ive got one for you:
Do you really think you’re fooling me?
Wiping away your tears doesn’t help,
I could trace where they ran down your face
