Every day is a pretend,
I’m alright, I feel okay.
Life’s a game, you want to play?
Buckle up, make sure you’re safe.
Hide the true, don’t let them know,
Everything’s about control.
If you lose it, it’s time to go.
Start from scratch, the process – slow.
Pick a mask, pick out your gown,
No one wants to see you frown.
Make sure everything’s in place,
Check your savings, walk with grace,
Organise all things you own,
Just pretend you’re in control.
When all else just falls apart,
You’ve got that just to hold on.
Look like you are not in pain,
Even when you trip again,
Nothing matters, nothing hurts,
After all, it’s just a game.
