Lying to myself


I'm living a lie
And it's hard not to deny
I'm not the man you see
When you look at me
I'm living in a day dream
A fantasy of my own creation
I'm drowning in my own indignation
Not willing to give up my imagined view
I'm the fool in the mirror
Looking back at you 
I'm blinded by the many masks I wear
Not willing to bare the real man in front of you
I'm not sure who I really am anymore
And that's the truth
I'm lying to myself
Would I do that to you?
