Masquerade!
Paper faces on parade
Masquerade!
Hide your face
So the world will
Never find you!

Masquerade!
Every face a different shade
Masquerade!
Look around
There's another
Mask behind you!

Flash of mauve
Splash of puce
Fool and king
Ghoul and goose
Green and black
Queen and priest
Trace of rouge
Face of beast

Faces
Take your turn, take a ride
On the merry-go-round
In an inhuman race

Eye of gold
Thigh of blue
True is false
Who is who?
Curl of lip
Swirl of gown
Ace of hearts
Face of clown

Faces
Drink it in, drink it up
Till you've drowned
In the light
In the sound

Masquerade!
Grinning yellows
Spinning reds
Masquerade!
Take your fill
Let the spectacle
Astound you!

Masquerade!
Burning glances
Turning heads
Masquerade!
Stop and stare
At the sea of smiles
Around you!

Masquerade!
Seething shadows
Breathing lies
Masquerade!
You can fool
Any friend who
Ever knew you!

Masquerade!
Leering satyrs
Peering eyes
Masquerade!
Run and hide
But a face will
Still pursue you!
