Lie Out Loud (LOL)

Lie Out Loud (LOL)

I cry alone
but dance in crowds
I whisper truth
but lie out loud

I hide my hope
but make believe
I dare to dream
but daren’t achieve

I claim my shame
but not my vault
I’m not to blame
but it’s my fault

I play at smiles
but bat at bliss
I take my aim
but always miss

I walk so weak
but fake my force
I proudly speak
but hear remorse

I scream inside
but battle brave
I delve down deep
but can’t be saved

I cry alone
but dance in crowds
I whisper truth
but lie out loud
