The way that people think sometimes makes me sick The way we criticize so hard and judge so quick Before you judge me look in the mirror All of the sudden things become much clearer.
You just see face and the hair, lips and the eyes But I know all your secrets and I know your lies If you look closer you will see That deep down you’re no better than me.
I see past the make up for what you really are Just a regular person covering a scar Hidden in your mind, a place you don’t go Memories and things you’d rather people don’t know.
We all have those secrets buried deep inside Things that we’d do almost anything to hide, We try to cover with makeup clothes and that certain grace But when you look in the mirror it’s staring you in the face.
You can put on the act and the makeup too But I can see right through you, You’re just another girl wanting to be accepted Fearing the burn of being rejected Falling into the trap of mindless trends Just envied by your friends Thinking that once you got it then you’re in But you still feel the emptiness from within.
So foolish so blind people can be Take off those colored contacts and you’ll see.
