When I tried playing an ignorant act
My being opposed reflections of my desires
My resolute broke into thousands of pieces
My soul, betrayed my convictions
The mirror of my conscious screamed, liar!
Now you guide me, what options do I have?
Where will I get strength to face my failures?
When I played as a self-possessed demon
My incarnation shattered before it could conceive
Temptations were far too alluring
Consumed by the poison of mercenary
Theater of pretense, too transparent to perceive
Now you direct me, how to conceal?
Where will I get a mask to cover my frailty?
When I played as an arrogant storm
The calmness of night invaded my fierceness
The serenity of moon was so tranquil
That the veil of fictions disarmed my feat
Calm radiant night mocked feigned turbulence
Now you invigilate and evaluate my negligence
And show me the way to hide my irresoluteness
When I played an act of a cold fiend
Chaste, pristine gestures echoed in my being
Sending countless promises, a pact so perfect
I was pulled back in ever engulfing mirage of dreams
Too enchanting to refuse, too unfeasible to accept
The ballad of deceptions is doing nothing to suffice
Once a proud actor,now can’t perfect an act of disguise
We can put up a show and collect accolades from world
But how are we suppose to deceive our own shadow?
Can perform with aplomb and cater to other's entertainment
But how to disguise ourselves from us, I just don’t know
