Treasure Island

Master of Disguise


Take a glance into my eyes
Can you tell I am a master of disguise
That my smile is a masquerade
I am more scarred than I portrayed
Sadness as vast as the sea
Entombed within this fictitious body
Constantly camouflaging what's in my heart
Too fearful of being more ripped apart
I pretend to be indestructible
Causing my anger to be more combustible
I made my facade like an intricate weave
Making it impossible for anyone to perceive
The insanity that is burning ablaze
Behind this constructed maze
Concealed under layers of lies
I am the master of disguise
