Masquerade to get ones way
Masquerade is your parade 
Paper faces and lies to portray 
Masquerade is on its way 
Hide your face in the night 
telling more stories and lies 
The world will never find you! 
In your purple outfit making out 
to another lover of your best friend's brother
every face a different shade to impersonate
look around and fantasize  about who you like 
there's another mask behind you
that you may know, but you won't find out 
until the next day and it may be too late 
flash of mauve 
splash of punch with a new kick 
fool and king playing around with dark queens
ghoul and goose...
green and black playing with cats 
queen and priest...dancing around 
with the lost and found 
trace of rouge 
face of beast jerking around with rage 
rag dolls and candy sticks for all to lick 
Masquerade is out for all to portray to get there ways.
