It’s a masquerade-a fancy ball
Take a chance, wear a mask
A disguise is the life
Never let the truth slip out.
Play by the rules, don’t take a chance,
Don’t wait around, don’t leave a trail.
A new life, a new style…
live a lie, don’t be shy.
Outside is different, inside is same
A new name, a new face.
Keep quiet, don’t speak up
Every day different, everyday same;
Always pretending that nothing has changed.
Hiding behind names, hiding behind faces-
Opening up to a new beginning.
