lyrics

You strain to contain your introversion
You strain to contain the emotion in your face
Put on a mask, make a diversion
You strain to contain the emotion in your face

Nobody sees you as yourself
Nobody sees you as yourself

You came to be trained exactly as they asked for
You're trained to appear precisely as you seem
Take off your mask, risk a disaster
You're trained to appear precisely as you seem

Nobody sees you as yourself
Nobody sees you as yourself

Toe the line
Toe the line

Is this the price you pay to be everything to every man
Is this price you pay for anonymity

Toe the line
Toe the line

To escape for a minute, reveal your secrets
Unburden yourself of everything you've been
What would be left but an empty vessel
A scar of a secret that you carried for a queen

Nobody sees you as yourself
Nobody sees you as yourself

Toe the line
Toe the line
Toe the line
Toe the line
