"The Mask" as written by and Robert Conrad Flynn Philip John Demmel....
Sounds in the attic
See inside the show
Watch as you go
Watch as you go

Trapped in some place
The entity fades

Watch them crawl on me
Claiming redemption
They're coming to your town

There's nothing inside
There's nowhere to hide

Assassination
When the Mask came off

Lurking in the doorway
I saw him hang by the power
Covered in scabs
Covered in scabs
Covered in faceless Masks of men

Assassination
When the Mask came off

    General CommentI guess I was thinking more of the way we wear masks to hide who we really are.
    Masks are things wear when we don't feel safe... Ie we act 'tough' around others to impress/ fit in etc etc.
    I think attic refers to our heads. 'My brain' ie 'see inside'- means look at who I really am.
    Assassination section refers to a time when the person took off their mask (ie showed who they truly were, felt safe with someone) and was betrayed, hurt. ie Assassination- part of then was killed by that hurt...
    That's my ideas... Estocopath, you're right though... Only Eric really knows! lol
