No More

I've stumbled upon unfamiliar territory,

a stranger in an unfamiliar land.

Foreigner, I guess I am

 

Who are these people staring into my soul?

Reading the secrets I swore would stay untold

Exposed

Out of place

That's exactly how I feel

Like I've just awakened from my fantasies

and now I'm desperately - frantically

struggling to face reality!

 

Rock bottom,

I can't go any lower.

Clock stopping,

time can't go any slower.

Stop watching,

the show was long over.

 

So then why am I center stage

putting on a show?

Staring at facade of my own face in the front row.

Who am I trying to impress?

Because even I don't know

 

No More!

I want no more!

I'm letting the curtains down.

I want out...

We often try to impress others for reasons even we don't konw. It feels so much better to let the curtain down, walk off the stage and be completely YOURSELF! Yes?
