I don’t even understand me
Why should I think that you should?
Even if I came to accept me
Why would I think that you could?
It isn’t so surprising to me
That my life is seen as benign
When I’ve learned from early on
To hide myself and not show a sign
When letting it out was not what a guy
Should do to impress other guys
Being secretive to the females too
Was only a word to the wise
Yes we are told to withdraw
To hide our feelings and our thought
Concealing any wild emotions
This is what we are all taught
So why should it be a mystery
When some people never come clean?
We all hide one thing or another
And you know damn well what I mean
