tear me down and show your eyes

I’m this thick black curtain that you see
Invitations all went out with ease

Ninety-two chances for connection die
Replaced by pitch black and blinding light

You’ll find empty space where life should be
Void of everything that you should see

Can you hear a cry for help behind this wall
Ten feet thick and twenty high?

Behind all this makeup is no one you know
I safely speak the truth and watch confusion grow

Can someone my potential realize?
Can you tear me down and show your eyes?
