I shove all my filth in the closet
And you don’t know the difference.
I hide all my clutter
And you think me clean.
I have practiced this façade for so long
And now you can’t see through it.
I disguise all my garbage
And you think what’s left is me.
I once was transparent
Once you could see right through me.
But then I discovered this smile and these words
Could hide it all from you.
Deep in that corner,
In that dark corner I protect,
Lie all my secrets
Lies all my filth
Lies all my sin.
But I put on a smile and you don’t know it’s there
I tell a story and you forget
I show you my desk and you think me clean
And you can’t see through me
For all my filth is hidden.
