welcome to the grand indictment
blur your skin, you're all invited
let's go where the aura's blinding
and we all move with liquid timing

let's brave the night that's bound to crash
THIS IS THE DANCE OF A THOUSAND MASKS
and watch the fall of our romance
THIS IS THE DANCE OF A THOUSAND MASKS

i noticed you shining through the sea
a thousand eyes that can't see me
the glass will overturn as beauty becomes the prey
and as i smile i watch you laugh
missing problems from the past
i know that you'll believe
anything, anything, that i...

say i want you
say i need you
this is what you want
this is what you get
take your drug tonight
lust and cigarettes
inhibitions gone
i want to forget
you wont sleep tonight
you will soon be...

i'm okay now
(I'M OKAY)
but every word you choose to say
will die with me forever so
close your eyes
(CLOSE YOUR EYES)
and take some time
to think of something clever

dance in the oil fields
paint the words too surreal

stuck to your violet midnight dreams
with silken lies that i've spun
my consolation, i'll regret everything i've...

done to myself
inject you with my hell
take your drug tonight
(this is the way it has to be)
this mixture dies with light
(for reasons we weren't meant to see)

dance! this is the dance of a thousand
open your eyes
masks! this is the dance of a thousand
regret every second

i noticed you shining through the sea
a thousand eyes that can't see me
so cover your tracks and just keep running

i'm okay now
(I'M OKAY)
but every word you choose to say
will die with me forever so
close your eyes
(CLOSE YOUR EYES)
and take some time
to think of something clever X2

this is my mask, cheap shining trash
underneath is the face of a coward
this is my mask, cheap shining trash
underneath is the face of a liar
