The Mascarade

Something has changed in me
You pass by and my hairs stand on end
Baby you have walked in and out of my subconscious like you owned the place
I have tried to keep from falling so that I could lock you out

I feel it
It’s in the way you look at me
But I see it change to hardened hostility
I see it
It is the essence of simplicity
But I feel it change to abject complexity

I have strayed in and out of time
But you have been my guiding light
Why have you brought disorder and destruction to this peaceful place?
I have failed to keep from falling so hard for your charms
