lyrics

What I Really Am

I hide in plain sight, blend in with the crowd
And for this reason, I’ll never be found
A loving, caring, father of three
Still the monster exists inside of me
Living this facade is part of my fun
The ultimate camouflage for what I’ve become
Always well-liked by family and friends
Only the truth will reveal what I really am

What I really am
What I really am
No one can know
What I really am

My brilliant disguise took years to refine
It had to be perfect to hide all the signs
I blend in like a fish in the sea
So no one can see the real me
The ones I keep close have no idea
That I am really someone they should all fear
They’d never be able to understand
So I need to conceal what I really am

What I really am
What I really am
No one can know
What I really am

The character I portray in my public life
Keeps the authorities at bay and mystified
I’m an actor performing on an open stage
Improvising the acts in my endless play
I’ve come this far and I won’t ever stop
Pretending to be something I’m not
I willing to do whatever I can
To keep the secret of what I really am

What I really am
What I really am
No one can know
What I really am
