lyrics

"Masquerade"

V1:

Deliver your message
Deliver your truth
Few greater goods
Will come forth from you

White knuckle devices
So dark, so divisive
Destruction abound
Don't care whose around


PreCh1:
Save yourself
Don't lecture me
It's old news
Means nothing to me

Fire-starter
Appointed martyr
The rage ensues
Means nothing to you


Ch1:
Tales of the past are set in stone
Create a tyrant to dethrone
As life's pendulum sways
Don't bring it down with your masquerade

V2:
Denying your fiction
Denying your lies
Dividing the people
Left all our hands tied

Violence inciting
So painful, so thriving
When one problem ends
Another begins

PreCh2:
Freedoms
Don't come free
I feel the anger
You're throwing at me

But rest assured
There's no war
You're fighting for
That will endure

Ch2:
Tales of the past are set in stone
Create a tyrant to dethrone
As life's pendulum sways
Don't bring it down with your masquerade

Bridge:
I won't let fear get in my way
Don't tread on me I'm here to stay

PreCh3:
No question
No denying
Your intentions
Misguided

Embracing
False hope
Defacing
What you loathe

Ch3:
Tales of the past are set in stone
Create a tyrant to dethrone
As life's pendulum sways
Don't bring it down with your masquerade
