Is life just an illusion?
A glimmering disguise
It's ok to hurt some
Like the glass in a fun house
Smudged by tarnished hands
Glee reflects as sorrow


Shiny on the outside (enduring over fear)
Veiled by a brave smile
There's chaos beneath the fun house (enduring over fear)
At the carnival of disguise

Why are we pretending?
Playing the sad clown
Put one foot in front of the other
You catch your own reflection
In the carousel’s glass
Oddly you find comfort

At times your shine may falter
Try to find the strength
To candy coat the darkness
Like a roller coaster's thrill
An evanescent joy
One day will end.
