Psycho


The Mask. the mask. The Mask. THE MASK.

It's all a cycle
Psycho when I write, though
Looking like
The mask of Michael

With a resemblance of me
What's the price of my life
Walking a tightrope
My past created a path, so
Wherever I go
It follows

A role model
Providing a blueprint
Step away from the needle
Just giving my two cents
How the hell did I escape
From the hell
That they threw me into

Gotta hurry and find me
A better influence
Promise that I won't follow
What all my friends doing
Problems are piling on top of him
This kid's ruined

I think it's time to
Put an end to it
Dear God,
Be my mentor

I put it all on the line
I lost sight
Of what happiness looks like
But my mask shows
That I'm fine
What I'm battling inside
You'll never know
It's all backwards

Laughing is a cry
And my passion is a crime
And I'm clashing with my job
And I'm trapped in this disguise.

Mask on
Don't worry, my mask on
I stare at the mirror
Swallow pills in the bathroom
Sleeping pills
Anxiety pills
Now I'm back calm
Heartbeat slows down
So now I'm half-normal
Survived another night
Somebody should clap for him
Mind of the mask
Thanks for the platform

Gathered all around me
They want me to rap for them
The skills of a running wheel
I feel like a rat to them
Spinning in circles
They're cheering on my verses
Think I'm the only person
Realizing I haven't gone anywheres
I don't care
So yea, laugh on
Best rapper alive whenever
My mask on

But the pills must be working
I'm talking out of my box
If my mask happened to fall off
The neighbors would call the cops
I'm supposed to be the innocent one
Now they're all shocked
If you split me in half
Which side would you want now?
Cops knocking at my door
They're telling me to come out
Put my mask back on
And open it with a smile

The Mask.

Feeling Your Vibe

I'm thinking about you
Spent the weekend with you
Now you question
People around you

See I treat you with kindness
I'm respecting your mind
It's the person that I am
We're deep with our conversations

A friendship for now
But if it grows into something more
I wouldn't be surprised

I'm feeling your vibe
You make me feel alive
I'm inspired to capture this moment
And turn it into a song, like

I had a lot on my mind
I started vented to you
You were interested at the time

I kept warming you that I'm different
I'm not normal
But you kept reassuring me
It's my own insecurities
You saw right through me

Had my guard up
And you broke it down
Both of our lives are in transition
New jobs with ambition
We both have broken hearts
Feels like we can't fix it
Damaged people
With trust issues

But you smile in disguise
And leave the worries behind
Because the worst is behind us
Optimistic, we climb
You got a permanent shine
And It's attractive
Being just friends
Gonna take practice 

So just smile in disguise
And leave the worries behind
Because the worst is behind us
Optimistic, we climb
You got a permanent shine
And It's attractive
Being just friends
Gonna take practice 

I'm thinking about you
Spent the weekend with you
Now you question
People around you

See I treat you with kindness
I'm respecting your mind
It's just the person that I am
We're deep with our conversations

A friendship for now
But if it grows into something more
I wouldn't be surprised

I'm feeling your vibe
You make me feel alive
I'm inspired to capture this moment
And turn it into a song, like

See you're beautiful lady
You're confusing me baby
'Cause you great a communication
It's putting me on the spot
You're challenging all my thoughts
Off-balance
I'm off of my game
She looked directly at my mask
And altered my pain

This the life of dying poet
I write my soul in the open
And hope that when it arrives
The message is still intact
And have some kind of impact
On the person it was directed at

I feel the pressure.

  8. The Mask Started To Glow

The Mask is a blanket that shields us from our insecurities. It disguises our worst flaws and attributes from even the people that love us most. The Mask is our protection, and when it’s removed, we’re completely vulnerable. The Mask allows us to have multiple identities. This gives us the advantage of using whatever face society’s willing to accept. The question I ask myself: is the mask protecting me from the world, or is it protecting the world from me?
