The Mask

Been thinking today of all the people who live behind masks.  Our lives usually are not lived, “what you see is what you get” but rather we hide behind a mask.

The Mask
Please don’t ask
What’s behind the veil
No one can really tell

What am I hiding?
Why am I crying?
What is it that I cannot tell?
The Mask
Please don’t ask

What I am covering up?
Why I have had enough
Enough of the pain
Why is it always the same?
My sin holds me down
In it I am going to drown

The Mask
Since you had to ask
Shows me all smile
When behind it all the while
Is my hurt, my toil, my shame
On the inside is nothing but pain

The Mask
Please don’t ask
I can’t take it off
It’s all my fault
I drowned my pain with sin
I can’t get free within
The Mask

The Mask
It only hides the void in my soul
I need someone else to take control
Is there a savior? is there a God?
Who on my soul will not trod?
But take my pain, take my hurt
Take my sin and give me some worth

The Mask
Jesus I ask
Take my life, take all of me
Heal my pain so I can finally see
This person behind the mask
