​Masquerade

This song is by Reality Check and appears on the album Reality Check (1997).

Now I'm caught in the zone my mind arrested by fear and
So I go it alone
A metamorphosis conceived by the early light
Distraction of self comes out in the night
Fabricated I'm constructed of opinions and lies
Which only leads to failing in my own eyes
Sinking to the depths while I'm masking what's inside
A bittersweet existence and I cause my own demise
And I wonder if you've ever seen life through the eyes of
One who understands what it means to be free
Freedom comes when you can let it go
But I guess you wouldn't know
It's such a shame the game
You play
Congratulations your invited
To the masquerade
I'd like to know what lies
Behind the mask you've made
My mind reflects the meaning to things that are jumbled
Resting on the first making time to rehearse
Intricate persona controlled animation
Visually impaired clinging to pain immersed
Mentally scarred cosmetics dripping down
Life in forward motion exist in reverse
Instable at the seams trying to conform
Trapped in a maze while sin is at its worst
And I wonder what your gonna do
When your disguise comes crashing down
And yourself comes shining through
Are you gonna hide your face or let it rest in the hands
Of grace
Don't hide your face in the masquerade
Don't play the game it's a masquerade
