Don't Be Shy b​/​w Lead Us to the Command Post

by Thoughts Detecting Machines

Don't Be Shy 03:51
Looking for love in the marketplace Buying some time with the human race Paying with hearts and hieroglyphs Browsing the aisles, anonymous How does it feel to be petrified? Watching the post parade pass by How does it feel to be out of sight? Losing your place in the pantomime Please don't deny who you are Look inside See what I see in you Don't be shy Why do you think you're all alone? When you are loved by everyone? Why do you run away and hide? When you're surrounded on all sides? Don't be afraid of yourself Or be ashamed There’s no need to explain Or justify It's easy to be overdrawn Step outside Open up to the world Don't be shy
