Am I really happy here?

At this masquerade party of mine
Lost within this lonely game I play
Looking for words to say

Talking without listening
Seaching but not finding

Lost in the masquerade party of mine
Running for answers to see no find
Dancing in the darkness

Am I really happy here?

Leaving all the masks behind
No longer hiding to be seen
No longer looking to be found
No longer leaving to arrive

Dancing in the infinite glow

Ending this masquerade party of mine
Only here to simply find
The ethereal glow outside I see

Emerges from light found coming from me.
