No scream escaping your forcing grip.
No cry slipping through your tight lips.
No fear reaching from your fingertips.
No sadness seeping out of any tears or rips.

Not a single tear streaming down your face.
Simple perfection, poised with grace.
Let good emotions falsely replace.
Stay flawless, dressed in silk and lace.

All feelings bottled up inside.
All feeling trapped, and forced to hide.
All feelings unable to leak a small cry.
All feelings stuck. Happiness a lie.
No use to try.

Put on a smile, leave it there.
Don't take it off, don't you dare.
Nobody needs to really care.
It's your fault. It's only fair.

Keep quiet. Don't let them see.
Keep quiet. Let the truth be.
Keep quiet. Listen to me.
Your true feelings will never be free.
