 The Veil: Waiting for your answer kills me. The silence just seeps its way in. If I were a magician, I'd make you be there for me before you could leave a hint. But now I know how you're hiding, and I think that I understand-that sometimes you need a disguise for how tiring life is from where you stand. But it's old news now, how you'll bring us all down with you, 'cause baby I have figured you all out: You hurt, I know. I feel it when I'm with you. Your smile is a fraud and your expression is stoned. The veil you wear is exquisite but I see right through it. You hurt, but I know you mean me no harm. So does it ever get old? Trying to fix who you are? Are you this scared? Are you this unaware that to me you're a work of art? And it's old news now, how you'll bring us all down with you, 'cause baby I have figured you all out. You hurt, I know. I feel it when I'm with you. Your smile is a fraud and your expression is stoned. The veil you wear is exquisite but I see right through it. You hurt, but I know you mean me no harm.

Everyone just wants something: Maybe it's money and maybe they're sold on the bright idea that your life is gold and they can hand it out for free. Or maybe it's beauty, and maybe they're bold enough to try to use you so they don't feel old, and they can wear you down for free. There's no evidence that time will make it fair. They've ransacked all your pockets for everything you got and they don't even care, 'cause everyone just wants something from you. And everyone is gonna need it, too. So it's up to you, what are you gonna do, let it build you up or do you in? 'Cause everyone just wants something from you...and then they're through. You thought it was business they called you for when you were in town, but they just knew you'd nod up and down to every little task for free. And when you had a favor to ask or a thought on your mind, you'll just get a dead line. Uh-oh, they only pick up when they're in need. And there's no evidence that time will make it fair. They've ransacked all your pockets for everything you got and they don't even care. 'Cause everyone just wants something from you. And everyone is gonna need it, too. So it's up to you, what are you gonna do, let it build you up or do you in? 'Cause everyone just wants something, and so do you.
