Perfidy

I hide behind veiled eyes
So no one can see the madness inside.
Every word out of my mouth is a lie.
You were so kind and so good
I wanted to be everything you thought of me

But I will break your heart
And when the veil falls
You’ll only find emptiness
As you pull me apart

I want to be so badly
Everything you think of me.
I’m standing on this pedestal,
My friend, it’s hollow inside
An empty box filled with lies.

Every word out of my mouth is a lie
You were so kind and so good
I only wanted to be everything you thought of me
But I’m a façade built of fairy-tales.

Oh I will break your heart
And when the veil falls
You’ll only find emptiness
As you pull me apart

Don’t look at me
You’ll see what I am
Unworthy of the faith you’ve given me
A leech in disguise

Maybe someday you won’t regret
Letting me have so much of you
Maybe one day your scars will fade
And I will become what I’ve always been,
Only an obstacle in your way

Every word out of my mouth is a lie
You were so kind and so good
I only wanted to be everything you thought of me
But I’m a façade built of fairy-tales.

Oh I will break your heart
And when the veil falls
You’ll only find emptiness
As you pull me apart

Maybe someday you won’t regret
Letting me have so much of you
Maybe one day your scars will fade
And I will become what I’ve always been
Only an obstacle in your way.
