Not the only one

I am on the ground
Impossible to reach up
Look down on me
As I look up
I can not stand it
Because you’re no better
You think you’re perfect
I think never
They think you are something
To me you are nothing
If you were to observe yourself
From my eyes
That is when you would seize to realize
You are nothing but a life of lies
I am not the only one
With a tampered life
I am not the only one
With plenty to hide
Within the shadows
Of the back of your mind
Is all the things
You manage to disguise
