I been seeing you for months
Coming to this place
Now what I want to know is, honey
When can I see your face?
I know you been hiding something
Secrets in your past
Whooo, baby, I just gotta know
What's behind the mask
Please, baby, please please
Give me one quick glance
Now how come I can't see your face when I
See what's in your pants?
Is it a skin condition?
Or an extra eye?
Surgical incision?
I keep wonderin' why (why!)
Uhhh... you ain't wearin' silver bullets
Or carving Z's in chests
It's been months since Halloween
Honey, I can't guess
Now just relax and let me lift up this edge
And let me take a peek
Ooh, let me have a look in here...
Well, curiosity killed this cat
Sorry I ever asked
What I don't know can't hurt me as much as
What's behind the mask
What's behind the mask, girl
What's behind the mask
What's behind that mask, girl
Sorry I ever asked.

    General CommentThis is by far one of my favorite song by The Cramps. Its about how some people hide things from relationships. Or theyll just hide themselves and act totally different. And he pretty much wants to know what shes hiding and why its so bad and why shes hiding it.

    General CommentI agree with below, but I think the concept might of been inspired by The Phantom of The Opera. (since they are known for B-movie references)
