"Mask" as written by and Daniel Johnston....
Seems like her broken heart
The loving part was missing
As the drama unfolds
She's lost the art of loving
Nowhere is where she goes
To find her piece of nothing
Seems like she's had enough
But she's always up to something

And now as the story goes
Another day is dying
She's already changed her clothes
And in disgrace she's laughing
It wasn't so long ago
She had me so temptated
And with no obligation
I was feeling so sedated
Now I'm left pretty dumb
And every bit retarded
Now the fires that burn are more than what she started

And now as the story goes
Another day is dying
She's already changed her clothes
And in disgrace she's laughing
Is it just a show of shows
Is that all she's thinking
And maybe I told her so
I'm thankful that I'm living
Another day in the past
And every hour I'm haunting
Everybody is wearing a mask
Playing Skip to the Lou, my darling

And now as the story goes
Another day is dying
She's already changed her clothes
And in disgrace she's laughing
