about

[[A song about striving to be your own person the way you want to be in spite of anxiety and past trauma.

With the lyrics being very personal to me, and the music coming together better than I could have imagined, I knew that this song would have to be the album's title track.

lyrics

Maybe one day you will see
what truly is the real me
do you dare to walk a thousand miles
to see what lies behind my plastic smile?

I spent my life running from myself,
i was making believe that I was somebody else
killing off my individuality,
to instead became what people wanted me to be
erased myself and conformed with the populous,
not living my life but everyone else's
All these lies, how long can they last?
You should never have to hide behind a mask

Maybe one day you will see
what truly is the real me
would you care to fight through all these trials
to see what lies behind my plastic smile?

I spent my days dancing on a knife's edge
where every passing moment was a reason to dread
Either mocked or beat down
all these memories of abuse endlessly dance through my head
I'd hide alone in my headphones safe from their hate
because my music was my only escape
But now I'm older, and something changed within,
Because I pour out my heart, not with a blade, but a pen

Maybe one day you will see
what truly is the real me
do you dare to walk a thousand miles
to see what lies behind my plastic smile?

Now I'm ready to forget the past
Now I'm ready to tear off this mask
To let you see the truth behind the disguise
to let me see the world with my real eyes

(Let it go)
(just let it go)
(no hiding anymore)
(I am free)

(Now i'm ready to...)
I finally made it through, my sorrow has died
as I drop my disguise and open my eyes
(Now i'm ready to...)
The sun on the horizon meets my gaze
And I'm ready to show the world my real face
(Let you see the truth)
This is who I am, no hiding anymore
I'm not going back, I'm changed forevermore
(Today I break free)
Although it was hard I fought through all these trials
And now there's no need to wear a Plastic Smile
