​Masquerade '98

This song is by Symphony X.

Shackled in darkness
- The forbidden portrait confined to it's frame
Unbroken silence
- A total misfortune and shame

Ragin obsession - this mask of oppression
It hides your aggression from view
This tearing suture renounces
The love he once knew

Your sacrifice this paradise of innocence
Trust the lie - you falsify the line of truth
You disguise your insolence
Don't deny insanity - mediocrity

Save us from this masquerade of lies
Kings and fools die in ridicule (save us)
Save us from this masquerade of lies

A fallen fortress sees him beneath starless skies
Subsiding deeper - the final farewell in his eyes

Unspoken hero
- Distrusted and thrusted within surmise
Seizing intrusion to unveil his clever disguise

Your sacrifice this paradise of innocence
Trust the lie - you falsify the line of truth

Save us from this masquerade of lies
Kings and fools die in ridicule (save us)
Save us from this masquerade of lies

(Solo)

Save us from this masquerade of lies
Kings and fools die in ridicule (save us)
Save us from this masquerade of lies
