This Life

Cover it up my love

Like death masks laugh

And facades crack

Like crowds contain

Odd sociopaths

Like shadows hide

What's in plain sight

I see you draw your

Curtains tonight

Cover it up

Cover it up

Cover it up my love

Like condoms block

The spread of disease

Like false wigs can

Help subtly deceive

Like a first strike counts

As a counter attack

I see your answer is

Don't call back

Cover it up

Cover it up

Cover it up my love

Like busy as little

Busy bees

Like on carrion

Beauty feeds

Like all good things

And charitable deeds

There's something rotting

When you look beneath

Cover it up

Cover it up

Cover it up my love

Cover it up

Cover it up

Cover it up for good

This Life
