​Take Off Your Mask

This song is by Peter Yarrow and appears on the album Peter (1972).

Have you heard the birds on the silver spring mountain?
Have you seen tomorrow set with the sun?
Have you seen yourself in the faces of children?
And has the now past and forever begun?

Oh, take off your mask
There are people outside looking
Take off your mask
You can find what you seek
Take off your mask and sit down at our table
Sit down and share with us what we have to eat.

And come hear the birds on the silver spring mountain
See tomorrow set with the sun
See ourselves in the faces of children
Today will be past and and tomorrow begun

What do you see now that you're naked?
What was it you hid in the depths of your fear?
Look at yourself in the mirror beside you
Your face shines in wonder with the spell that you're under
Your tears tell the story, they cleanse you of worry
I am your brother, your friend

Hear the birds on the silver spring mountain
See tomorrow set with the sun
See ourselves in the faces of children
Today it is past, tomorrow and tomorrow has begun
