Who's the man behind the mask
Can you tell me, who's the man behind the mask?
Who gives a clever illusion, of a created past.
We've painted his portrait, but will the face we painted last?
A shadowy figure cloaked in mystery, making us laugh.
Do you really know this person, whos play in which we've all been cast?
We listen to a poetic song, leading us on a dance, with a rhythm so strong, so fast.
We're all so happy to be deluded with his attention, as he sits in the limelight and basks.
But once again I yell from the crowd, do you know who's the man behind the mask?
We've been lapping up his stories, like dogs lapping tea from a fallen flask!
Shouldn't we even bring his colourful stories to task.
But no one else has actually stopped to even ask.
Who's the man behind the mask?
