lyrics

[Verse 1]
Tell yourself it's fine.
As I convince you otherwise,
With eyes like hammers, words like nails.
You always search to lose yourself,
In pieces of mind, alone.

[Pre-Chorus]
Can you escape those horrors like waves–
that wake up your dreams,
And they haunt your days?
How dare you...
Wear that, you know that

[Chorus]
I hate that facepaint.
You're just a feather in the rock-way.
I can see you hide, from me.
You hide from me.

[Verse 2]
You just use your hands.
To shield all your emotion, like a soldier refusing to cry.
So, we sit in silence with sirens in our minds again.

[Pre-Chorus]
Can you escape those horrors like waves–
That wake up your dreams,
And they haunt your days?
How dare you...
How dare you wear that, you know that

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
You know you're being followed.
Run for cover.

[Ending Chorus]
I hate that facepaint.
I'm talking about yours,
But I know that you're a feather in the rock-way.
I can see you so clearly now.

You hide from me.
You hide from me.
You hide from me.
You hide from me.

[Outro]
You toss in bed like a ship at sea,
Don't ever forget that you did this to me.

How dare you.
