Out of the darkness
Into a place
Filled with blinding light so you can’t hide your face
Out of desire
You can’t turn away
The screen comes on but you can’t turn away

As I slip into a role
And the moment takes control
Now I’m starting to turn heads
The spotlight starts to shine on just how quickly we’re mislead

We’re all so superficial
We try so hard to fit the visual
We spend minute after minute trying to perfect
The whole time, we should’ve tried to disconnect

We don’t do it for us, we only do it for them
We spend minute after minute trying to perfect
The whole time, we should’ve tried to disconnect

Pretty faces and pretty scenes
But it’s all black and white
Painting pictures through a filter into real life
The marks you draw hide every flaw
You’ve got the perfect glow
And the whole world, the whole world has to know

Who do you pretend to be?

We’re all so superficial
We try so hard to fit the visual
We spend minute after minute trying to perfect
The whole time, we should’ve tried to disconnect

We don’t do it for us, we only do it for them
We spend minute after minute trying to perfect
The whole time, we should’ve tried to disconnect
We don’t do it for us, we only do it for them
We only do it for them

If I could change myself
From the inside out
I’d never be afraid to show
It’s my true colors that are beautiful
Not the ones that I pretend to be

If I can’t look away from the eyes that watch me
(I can’t help it, I just need it)
Then I will never escape from who they want me to be
(I can’t help it, I just need it)
I’ll overcome the love that I so desperately need
