This song was based on a poem that a friend of Jeremy's wrote. He asked him to turn it into a song, which Jeremy said we could try. After a night of just messing around we came up with the intro riff, and the rest was history. Jesse would later ad in a final verse to complete the song. Though it is the shortest song (besides Flightless) on Mephobia, but it is one of the more powerful and will leave you wanting more.


Verse I

All my mask are many
Build my wall to high
For so long I've hated
Died behind these eyes
Masks hide my true face
Bury me in doubt
Taken for the crazy
Breathing in and out

Pre-Chorus I

Will I ever find my way back?
Through my efforts I claw my very way
Does it take another life to feel
That my burial is real


I can't remember who I once was
This life is swallowing me

Verse II

My fears, pains, and greed will
Fry my hopes and dreams
For this time I'm jaded
Parched with less of me
Painting pictures of my life
The canvas misery
Aching from my body
Shows the mask is me!

Pre-Chorus II

Nothing must fall to this
To impact me internally
Build up the one's we've missed
Inspire ever suddenly
Take back the choices that I've lost
And mistakes along the way
To find out what it means to be
A stronger person with a name.



Fighting through this
Will take more than I can see
We will get there
Patience be the key
