I wear my shame like a mask on my heart
To disguise the way I feel.
We’ve been so numb to all that’s going on
You see in this world nothing is real.

Before I leave, I’ve got to tell you
Before I leave, you’ve got to know
Before I leave, I’ve got to tell you
There are some secrets you should know

Cars speed by my window, people stop and talk
I can’t hear a word they say.
They’re just blank faces that never connect
I hide in my mind night and day.

When I’m gone I’ll make sure to leave no trace
Of me ever being around here.
There are some secrets that you and I must share
Before I disappear.
