I'm a little like everyone I meet
I pick up the parts of themselves that they throw away
Creates the mosaic that makes me
And I see what they see
Through their lenses
Like a child growing into new senses
And a childlike wonder
Of just what makes the man behind the mask I'm under.

Placing the truth on your perception
Is the universal deception

I'll ask you for my trust
To be your second guess
The source of your regret
All the things you would do if it weren't for the voice in your head

And to find the time some way
To leave it all behind for a day
No more need to be afraid
When you see it's all been misplaced

Placing the truth on your perception
Is the universal deception

No rationality
And there's no sanity
Just like some foreign dream
Taking away from what we won't let ourselves see.

All along in the uni-de-cep-tion.
