Listen to a sample

I set out to make this song very postal service-esque.  My wife Mandy suggested the idea of being seen as who we really are and not who we are trying to appear.  So I took that and ran with it.  I really like how it turned out and since Mandy and I are leaving for NYC early in the AM that’s all I’m saying for now.  Check out the commentary when it posts for more details about the song.

Mask
lyrics by Tim Seley

when you look at me
who do you see
which version, revision
of my psyche
can you tell me what’s real
can I tell you, how I feel

is this the truth
or some alternate reality
can you see?

I’m a master of hiding
what’s going
on in my heart and brain

I’m so tired of hiding
behind this
fake face that I wear
the circus is over
I’m retiring
from this acting career

can you look past
this rose colored mask
and see me as me
because I want you
to see through me
and still like what you see

if you look past
this rose colored mask
you won’t like all you see
but I want you
to see through me
and still love me for me
