lyrics

if I take it down a notch,
will I feel much better?
all the drugs in the house
are better than this letter.

this masquerade hurts my head

i imagine all that pain
that you must have felt that day.
it's not so different than my own
sometimes that's all i know

this masquerade hurts my head

the day that we first met
your wrists marked with red
but they are only images
of a man inside my head

this masquerade hurts my head

did you think of your regrets
stitched up on your wrists
each record of your name
underneath those bandages

this masquerade hurts my head

if I take it down a notch,
will I feel much better?
all the booze in the world
is better than this letter.

this masquerade hurts my head
