Is there anyone that fails?

Is there anyone that falls?

Am I the only one in church today

Feelin’ so small?

 

‘Cause when I take a look around

Everybody seems so strong

I know they’ll soon discover

That I don’t belong

 

So I tuck it all away, like every thing’s okay

If I make them all believe it, maybe I’ll believe it too

So, with a painted grin, I play the part again

So, everyone will see me the way that I see them

 

CHORUS:
Are we happy plastic people

Under shiny plastic steeples

With walls around our weakness

And smiles to hide our pain?

But if the invitation’s open

To every heart that has been broken

Maybe then we close the curtain

On our stained glass masquerade

 

Is there anyone who’s been there?

Are there any hands to raise?

Am I the only one who’s traded

In the altar for a stage?

The performance is convincing

And we know every line by heart

Only when no one is watching

Can we really fall apart

 

But would it set me free

If I dared to let you see

The truth behind the person

That you imagine me to be?

Would your arms be open?

Or would you walk away?

Would the love of Jesus

Be enough to make you stay?

 

CHORUS:
Are we happy plastic people

Under shiny plastic steeples

With walls around our weakness

And smiles to hide our pain?

But if the invitation’s open

To every heart that has been broken

Maybe then we close the curtain

On our stained glass masquerade

 

CHORUS:
Are we happy plastic people

Under shiny plastic steeples

With walls around our weakness

And smiles to hide our pain?

But if the invitation’s open

To every heart that has been broken

Maybe then we close the curtain

On our stained glass masquerade

Is there anyone that fails?

Is there anyone that falls?

Am I the only one in church today

Feelin’ so small?
