Dream - Mask

[Intro]
(Secure the bag, know what I mean? Banrisk on the beat)
(Ayo, Perish, this is hot, boy)

[Verse 1]
I wear a mask with a smile for hours at a time
Stare at the ceiling while I hold back what's on my mind
And when they ask me how I'm doing I say, "I'm just fine"
And when they ask me how I'm doing I say, "I'm just fine"
But the fact is
I can never get off of my mattress
And all that they can ask is
"Why are you so sad, kid?" (Why are you so sad, kid?)

[Pre-Chorus]
That's what the mask is
That's what the point of the mask is

[Chorus]
So you can see I'm tryin', you won't see me cryin'
I'll just keep on smilin', I'm good (Yeah, I'm good)
And it just keeps on pilin', it's so terrifying
But I keep on smilin', I'm good (Yeah, I'm good)
I've been carin' too much for so long
Been comparin' myself for so long
Been wearin' a smile for so long, it's real
So long, it's rеal, so long, it's real
[Verse 2]
Always bein' judged by a bunch of strangе faces
Scared to go outside, haven't seen the light in ages
But I've been places
So I'm okay-ish, so I'm okay-ish
Yeah, I'm okay, bitch
But the fact is
I need help, I'm failin' all my classes
They think that I need glasses
I just really wish that I could pass this (Wish that I could pass this)

[Pre-Chorus]
That's what the mask is
That's what the point of the mask is

[Chorus]
So you can see I'm tryin', you won't see me cryin'
I'll just keep on smilin', I'm good (Yeah, I'm good)
And it just keeps on pilin', it's so terrifying
But I keep on smilin', I'm good (Yeah, I'm good)
I've been carin' too much for so long
Been comparin' myself for so long
Been wearin' a smile for so long, it's real
So long, it's real, so long, it's real

[Outro]
So long, it's real
So long, it's real

After the succes of 'Roadtrip' Dream released another song, again produced by PmBata. This song, Mask is about putting up a 'mask' to hide for example your sadness, insecurities etc. It touches upon his own experience with this and how eventually he became the mask. It also talks about his experience with ADHD and how he dealed with it. He explained on a stream, to clarify what we see in the music video, that the medication he took for his ADHD not only damped his ADHD features. It also took down his creative mind and made him feel like he wasn't himself which is why we see him throw away his pills. He used to lie about taking his medication and throw them down the toilet, before completely stopping with even getting the medication. Some people were angry with him for - in their eyes - encouraging people to not take their medication. Dream clarified that he was not encouraging that at all, the music video was purely a depiction of his life, not ours and that we should all do what is healthy for us as individuals.
