Lyrics: Dream – Mask

DOWNLOAD MP3

On “Mask,” Dream reflects about his past fights with mental illnesses like depression and ADHD, while acknowledging how they affect him in his current life. The song’s title plays with the lyrics as a shield hiding Dream’s insecurities while he fights these mental illnesses; he confirmed the title on March 14 when replying to a fan via his third Twitter account, dreamhangout.

The day before, Dream first teased his fans that confirmed he was working on a new song via said Twitter account.

“Mask” aims for a rock beat while keeping some pop elements from Dream’s collaboration with producers Banrisk and Perish Beats called “Roadtrip.” Following the huge success of this February 2021 hit, “Mask” is the second collaboration between the three people.

[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
