"Fake Happiness"

There are many tricks to the slave trade the face we wear is one.
Cheerful Smiling faces, happy high fives dancing under the sun.
Cover the truth as best you can is instructed to every man.
To fake-it-til-you-make-it urged throughout ones' Life span.

Look upon the inner being with open eyes of better seeing.

Pretend that you are gleeful, full of wealth and care, free of woe.
You are far above the clouds and not involved in the ole heave hoe.
Do not permit the world to see the truth beneath the hide.
Bottle it up and press it down to keep it deep inside.

Look upon the inner being with open eyes of better seeing.

Ignore the burdens of the chains in life.
Dull the senses 'til null the pains of strife.
What's the meaning of this evilness?
This is not the path to holy bliss.

Look upon the inner being with open eyes of better seeing.

Wherefore art thy shameful sin?
Tis' Hidden betwixt the evil grin?
Forced Social courtesies to live a lie.
Taunting embarrassingly False pride.

Look upon the inner being with open eyes of better seeing.

Uncontrolled envious jealousy and rage.
Solely for a phony life that's staged.
Secret groups, we give our pledge.
between us a widely divided wedge

Look upon the inner being with open eyes of better seeing.

Why is the truth of my state deemed mean?
Why the view on reality found only in a dream?
Why must You "Permit-me-to-be-honest"?
Surely, in this philosophy, I'm not the lonely monist.

Look upon the inner being with open eyes of better seeing.
