"Masquerade" as written by David James Lichens, Cary Ryan Barlowe, Rod Schuller, Chris Blaney and Ric Robbins....
An urgent sense of regret and 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 mean
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, you're invited to the masquerade
I'd like to know what lies behind the mask you've made

It's such a shame, the game you play
Congratulations, you're invited to the masquerade
I'd like to know what lies behind the mask you've made

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, grace

It's such a shame, the game you play
Congratulations, you're invited to the masquerade
I'd like to know what lies behind the mask you've made

It's such a shame, the game you play
Congratulations, you're invited to the masquerade
I'd like to know what lies behind the mask you've made

It's such a shame, the game you play
Congratulations, you're invited to the masquerade
I'd like to know what lies behind the mask you've made

It's such a shame, the game you play
Congratulations, you're invited to the masquerade
I'd like to know what lies behind the mask you've made

Don't hide your face in the masquerade
Don't play the game, it's a masquerade
Don't hide your face in the masquerade
Don't play the game, it's a masquerade
