from Masks - EP by Aviators



A song about the nature of changing personas depending on moment; the fake faces and small talk that some use to hide what they really feel and keep their true selves hidden away out of paranoia.


Creeping eyes from across this masquerade
Feeling scared, every stare will cut like blades
Dead inside, try to hide behind
And shake the tremors

Hiding with a smile in a crowded place
Emoting through the lips of a plastic face
Every word just a code that screams
I'm owned by terror
Are you scared to see what lies beneath
Behind these artificial teeth
Through the guilty strings this mask
Controls its wearer

Trapped in our own disguises
Cut free but soulless still
Our dreams are haunted by the
Ghosts we kill
Identities of silence
In search of cheaper scares
We're all surrounded by the
Masks we wear

Vilified for deeds done in the light
Hiding away within plain sight
These cloaks are keeping safe
The secret faces
Terrified of making one mistake
Narrow mind 'till the soul begins to break
We are just husks seeking
The world's false graces

Awake within the moment
Asleep throughout our lives
We suffer in this torment
Ensnared in our own lies
In facelessness we're equal
When we're not even there
You're someone underneath this
Behind the mask you wear
